Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn will plead guilty Friday to “willfully and knowingly” making “false, fictitious and fraudulent statements” to the FBI about conversations with Russia’s ambassador, according to court documents.
Jared Kushner’s attorney said the Senate Judiciary Committee scrapped a Monday deadline for President Donald Trump’s son-in-law to turn over “missing” documents the panel wants for its investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
By ordering the Justice Department to turn over a number of documents, special counsel Robert Mueller III is bringing his probe into the scandal between President Donald Trump’s administration and the Russian government one step closer to the commander in chief.
His most experienced attorneys have discrete targets, such as former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and current White House aides. Mueller’s longtime chief of staff is coordinating all the lawyers, including some who cover multiple topics. Select FBI special agents have been tapped to question witnesses.
