Michael Flynn Resigns as National Security Advisor
Mike Flynn, former national security adviser
Michael Flynn submitted his resignation on Monday evening as National Security Adviser. He was interviewed by the FBI during the first few days of the new Trump administration. The FBI supposedly didn't believe he was forthcoming concerning his conversations with the Soviet ambassador. Was he discussing sanctions against Russia? He at first stated it wasn't and now it's supposedly false. According to the New York Times, he was discussing sanctions against Russia. According to law, it would be considered felony if Flynn lied to the FBI concerning his conversation with Russian ambassador, Sergey I. Kisylak. On January 14, Flynn told Vice-president Mike Pence that he didn't discuss sanctions against Russia from the Obama administration in late December.
According to sources, Mike Flynn was ousted not so much because of the conversations he had with the Russian ambassador, because he wasn't truthful to Vice-president Pence about the nature of Flynn's calls to the Russian ambassador. Click on the link from the New York Times to read the full story.
