Michael Flynn is cooperating with the FBI, but it is what Donald Trump says, or tweets, that may be more telling.
In a tweet he’s admitted that he sacked Michael Flynn because he lied to the FBI over the nature of his conversations with the Russian ambassador.
It was AFTER the national security adviser was sacked that Mr Trump (allegedly) asked then-FBI director James Comey to drop the Flynn investigation, saying “he’s a good guy”.
He also subsequently tweeted that Mr Flynn was the victim of a witch-hunt and should seek immunity from prosecution.
Yet, by the President’s own admission today, he knew all along that Mr Flynn was guilty of a federal offence.

Mr Trump sought to dismiss George Papadopoulos, who has provided key evidence in the first criminal case connecting Mr Trump’s team to alleged intermediaries for Russia’s Government.”Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar. Check the DEMS!” Mr Trump tweeted. Mr Trump had called Mr Papadopoulos an “excellent guy” last March and tweeted a picture with him at a “national security meeting” in Washington.
