aNewDomain — Former national security advisor Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of lying to the FBI in a Washington DC federal district court today. According to the indictment document, readable in full below, Flynn lied about his contacts with Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.
Special counsel Robert Mueller has released the plea agreement, statement of the offense and a charging document. Flynn has released a statement, too. Find all those Flynn plea documents readable in full and in place below:
Here is the plea agreement, in which Flynn agreed to enter a guilty plea for one count of lying in exchange for continuing to provide cooperation and details regarding the ongoing investigation into whether Pres. Donald Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 US presidential campaign.
In a Dec. 1, 2017 statement, Flynn said:
“After over 33 years of military service to our country, including nearly five years in combat away from my family, and then my decision to continue to serve the United States, it has been extraordinarily painful to endure these many months of false accusations of “treason” and other outrageous acts. Such false accusations are contrary to everything I have ever done and stood for. But I recognize that the actions I acknowledged in court today were wrong, and, through my faith in God, I am working to set things right. My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel’s Office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country. I accept full responsibility for my actions.”
