Rep. Denny Heck Calls Flynn's Plea 'Epic'

Special Counsel Robert Mueller plowed into the center of Donald Trump’s administration, securing a guilty plea from Trump’s first national security adviser and placing markers on two other advisers, including the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Michael Flynn admitted he lied to FBI agents in January about conversations he’d had with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. But he testified Friday that he had fully informed members of Trump’s transition team about the communications, and had been guided by them.
