Flynn Prepared To Testify That Trump Asked Him To Reach Out To Russians – VIDEO

Friday former National Security advisor Michael Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI. Now reports surface that Flynn will testify that candidate Trump asked him to reach out to the Russians.

Per Daily Wire:

On Friday, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI about speaking with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in order to convince Kislyak to lay off of backlash against new sanctions on Russia in the waning days of the Obama administration. He apparently escaped charges with regard to financial payments from foreign sources, including the Turkish government, which led people to believe that he would flip on other members of the Trump administration.

And that appears to be the case. Flynn says he will now testify against other members of the administration.

Flynn had resisted doing so for months, given his close ties with the Trump administration. But he apparently felt abandoned by the administration in recent weeks, thanks to “mounting legal debts and plans to sell his house to help defray costs,” according to ABC News.

This isn’t quite grounds for a collusion charge. Just because there was contact with the Russians does not guarantee that information actually exchanged hands with the hope of it changing the election. It’s very common for campaigns to have exchanges with the leadership of other nations.

The light charges against the former National Security Advisor do suggest that he may have plenty of information to release.
