Michael Flynn denied discussing U.S. sanctions with Russia’s ambassador in an interview with the FBI, current and former U.S. officials told The Washington Post on Thursday. U.S. officials reportedly maintain the former national security adviser did discuss sanctions with Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, based on intercepted communications.
The allegation that Flynn misled federal agents during his Jan. 24 interview would constitute a felony offense, though a decision to prosecute Flynn rests with the Justice Department.
TVNL Comment: Okay. Think about the odds that Jeff Sessions, the new Attorney General, will prosecute Flynn. Not really a possibility.
