Michael Flynn had a brief career as President Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor. He was ousted after it was revealed that he lied to the FBI and to Vice President Mike Pence about his business dealings with Russians.
It’s now being revealed that in March 2017, former FBI Director told members of Congress at the time that FBI agents did not believe Flynn lied to FBI agents or to Pence. This is in a direct contradiction to what Comey later testified to and is different than what was known prior to the special counsel investigation into Russian interference.
(Fox News) – Then-FBI Director James Comey reportedly told lawmakers last March that agents did not think former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn lied to them — raising more questions about a key moment in the agency’s Russia probe.
The Washington Examiner’s Byron York reports that Comey briefed lawmakers amid allegations Flynn had lied to Vice President Pence about conversations with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and speculation he also may have misled FBI agents who questioned him in January 2017. Flynn lost his job over that controversy — and as recently as December, even President Trump claimed Flynn had “lied” to agents.
But Comey reportedly told lawmakers at the time that agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe he lied to them in that Jan. 24 meeting, and that any inaccuracies in his account were unintentional.
The whole special counsel investigation into the Trump campaign and alleged Russian election interference in the 2016 presidential election has been nothing than a wild fiasco perpetrated by anti-Trump Democrats in the beginning. Recent information points to Barack Obama and his National Security Advisor Susan Rice since the day of Trump’s inauguration.
