Redusert tiltale for Michael Flynn

Michael Flynn har trolig inngått en deal om å angi noen høyere opp i systemet for å redusere tiltale mot seg selv og sønnen. Det har vært varslet den siste uka at han trolig ville gjøre noe slik.

(The Guardian)
Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn pled guilty on Friday morning to one count of making false statements to FBI agents in their investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

About four days after Trump became president, Flynn made “materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to law enforcement about a meeting he had with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, according to court documents.

Flynn is at the center of a broader investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into links between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives. It had appeared that Mueller’s team was seeking a deal of some kind to win Flynn’s cooperation in that investigation.

Flynn was filmed walking into FBI headquarters at just after 11am. He ignored shouted questions from the media asking whether he had reached a deal with special counsel.

Michael Flynn har sagt seg skyldig i ett forhold -- det at han løy til FBI i avhør om samtaler med ambassadør Kislyak. Man hadde forventet en langt mer omfattende tiltale. Det betyr mest sannsynlig at han har hatt noe å tilby som gjenytelse for redusert tiltale.
