Flynn Charged

Former nation­al secu­ri­ty advis­er Michael Flynn plead­ed guilty Friday to lying to the FBI, becom­ing the first Trump White House offi­cial to face crim­i­nal charges and admit guilt so far in the wide-rang­ing elec­tion inves­ti­ga­tion led by spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller.

Flynn also agreed to coöper­ate with Mueller’s probe, which focus­es on Russian med­dling in the 2016 elec­tion and pos­si­ble coör­di­na­tion between Russia and Donald Trump’s cam­paign aimed at send­ing the Republican busi­ness­man to the White House.
