Former national security adviser Michael Flynn lied to FBI agents in an interview last month about the nature of his discussions with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., current and former officials told the Washington Post

Intelligence agencies intercepted communications that showed Flynn discussed sections against Russia, which he denied to in a Jan. 24 interview with the FBI.

Flynn’s denial may place him in legal jeopardy because it’s a felony offense to lie to the FBI.

Whether Flynn is actually charged is another question. That decision falls to President Trump’s Justice Department.

Shortly after President took office, the FBI began questioning ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador, the New York Times reports. 

While it’s not yet clear what Flynn said during the interviews, he faces potential felony charges of lying to FBI investigators.

Flynn resigned Monday after it was discovered that he discussed sanctions against Russia with the country’s ambassador.

On Jan. 26, the Justice Department altered the White House that Flynn could be subjected to blackmail by the Russian because of what he said n the phone calls.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Tuesday that Trump knew Flynn wasn’t truthful with administration officials about the conversations.

“We’ve been reviewing and evaluating this issue with respect to General Flynn on a daily basis for a few weeks, trying to ascertain the truth,” Spicer said.

Donald Trump and his inner circle have repeatedly denied that his team had contact with Russian officials immediately after the presidential election.

Turns out, National Security Adviser Michael Flynn communicated with a Russian ambassador to the U.S. in the month before Trump was sworn in as president.

The FBI is investigating whether Flynn, a retired general, played a role in U.S. foreign policy by communicating with the ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, the Washington Examiner reports.

Flynn may have violated law if he undermined President Obama’s actions by promising a different outcome for the Russians.

Democrats were incensed.

“If this new report is true, we need to ask not only whether General Flynn should be leading our national security efforts, but whether he should even hold a security clearance,” Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said.
