U.S. President Donald Trumpsaid on Saturday the actions of his former national security adviser Michael Flynn after the 2016 election were "lawful".
Flynn admitted he was not truthful when asked by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on January 24 about those interactions - and that officials on the president's transition team, including a "very senior member", knew that he had talked to the Russian ambassador, The Washington Postreported. Earlier in February, former FBI director James Comey said that Trump asked him to stop the investigation into Flynn.
Trump's tweet was delivered while he was in a motorcade in midtown Manhattan heading to a fundraiser.
To his credit, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whose investigation has already cost taxpayers over $5 million, shuffled Strzok off to the Siberian bowels of the FBI's human resources department. Until now, the White House has claimed that Trump fired Flynn just because he lied to Pence.
As initially reported today by The Washington Post and The New York Times, Strzok during the presidential campaign previous year sent messages to a colleague that some believe could be interpreted as critical of then-candidate Donald Trump. And both the Times and the Post noted in their reports that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has faced criticism from Trump and other Republicans for his role in the Clinton email investigation and his wife's political ties to a key Clinton ally in Virginia. Flynn separately communicated with Kislyak after being asked by a senior Trump transition official to find out how foreign governments stood on a UN Security Council resolution about Israel and to influence those governments to delay the vote or defeat the resolution.
People in the White House and beyond are waiting to see the next steps from Mueller, and what Flynn tells him that might direct those next steps.
Flynn is cooperating with Mueller's team, according to court papers.
Flynn also was told by a "very senior member" of Trump's transition team to contact Russian Federation and other foreign governments to try to influence them ahead of the vote, the prosecutors said. Trump said in a tweet.
A few hours later, Mr. Strzok and his team were back in Mr. Comey's conference room for a final briefing: Only about 3,000 emails had been potentially work-related.
CNN reported that a source familiar with the investigation said Kushner is the "very senior" transition official mentioned in the documents.
