Trump on Flynn Deal: 'There Has Been Absolutely No Collusion'

Trump on Flynn Deal: 'There Has Been Absolutely No Collusion'”

Manafort and Gates have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. "There was nothing to hide!"

Miller was responding to a tweet Trump posted Saturday in which he said he fired former national security adviser Michael Flynn in February because Flynn "lied to the Vice President and the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

The Times reported "Strzok and a colleague reacted to news events, like presidential debates, in ways that could appear critical of Mr. Trump".

"Can you talk about what Michael Flynn might tell the special counsel?" a reporter asked Saturday morning as Trump crossed the White House lawn on his way to a fundraiser in New York City.

According to documents released by Mueller, Flynn lobbied Russian Federation to kill a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements at the behest of a "very senior" transition official that sources told CNN was Jared Kushner - Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser.

Flynn was forced to resign on February 13 as national security adviser after 24 days on the job for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about Russian contacts.

Flynn's statements about his Russian Federation contacts and his 2016 consulting work for a Turkish client both came under scrutiny by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. The key question now is what Flynn knows that could incriminate others and what he might have offered in exchange for such a lenient plea deal. Trump said in a tweet on Saturday. His disappointment that the FBI, one of the last agencies to lose its good standing among the American people, had succumbed to blatant partisan politics and could no longer be trusted on points of law enforcement and investigation was palpable. and heart-breaking. Afterward, Comey said that Trump had asked him to drop the investigation into Flynn.

Peter Strzok, a veteran FBI investigator, was shuffled off to the FBI's human resources department by Mueller after the Justice Department's inspector general opened an investigation into the texts, The New York Times reported on Saturday. Still, Trump has made clear that the probe preoccupies him and he wants it gone.

A former senior Trump administration official said Strzok was even-handed in all of his dealing with the Trump White House.

For one thing, Flynn's cooperation could shed light on another aspect of the Mueller investigation, the claim that Trump may have obstructed justice by firing then-FBI Director James Comey in May.

The Justice Department's inspector general has been looking into Strzok's actions and indicated in a statement today that the review is part of broader investigations announced in January of how the FBI and Justice Department handled matters associated with the 2016 presidential election.
