I asked you a simple question. You tried to insinuate something was found on Trump, now you are back pedaling. I cant talk with you, you are too dishonest.
Well, let's see - what did Flynn lie about to the FBI:
According to court documents filed by Mueller, Flynn lied when he told investigators that he did not ask then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak to "refrain from escalating the situation" in response to sanctions that then-President Obama had levied on Russia in response to meddling in the election.
Flynn also lied, the counsel charged, when he said he did not ask the ambassador to stymie an unrelated United Nations Security Council vote.
Flynn's misrepresentation of his conversations with Kislyak — which took place in December 2016, before Trump took office — were the justification for his ouster from the White House after just 24 days.
But government prosecutors on Friday raised new questions about who in Trump’s orbit knew Flynn was misrepresenting the content of the calls.
Prosecutors told U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras that Flynn spoke with a "senior official" in President’s Trump's transition team at the Mar-a-Lago resort to discuss what he should communicate to the Russian ambassador during the calls.
Flynn and the senior officials discussed both the recently implemented U.S. sanctions on Russia, as well as the fact that they did not want Russia to escalate friction between the two nations, prosecutors said.
After the discussion, Flynn telephoned Kislyak. He then called the senior transition official and reported the sanctions discussion, prosecutors said.
Nothing to do with Trump?
