Flynn reportedly told FBI he didn’t discuss sanctions with Russian ambassador

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn last month denied to FBI agents that he had discussed U.S. sanctions with Russia’s ambassador to Washington, contrary to what intelligence agencies learned in  very possibly illegally intercepted communications , current and former U.S. officials told The Washington Post. Lying to the FBI is a felony, so Flynn’s claims in the Jan. 24 interview could expose him to legal trouble. It would be up to the Justice Department to decide whether to prosecute him. A spokesman for Flynn, who resigned this week as President Trump’s national security adviser, and the FBI declined to comment.
