Michael Flynn entered a guilty plea in the Robert Mueller Trump/Russia investigation today. The most interesting aspect of this story is Flynn’s acknowledgement that he’s cooperating with Mueller investigators.
Flynn and his son were looking at felony convictions.
In his statement, Flynn said, “My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel’s Office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country.”
Statement by Lt. General Michael T. Flynn (Ret.)
After over 33 years of military service to our country, including nearly five years in combat away from my family, and then my decision to continue to serve the United States, it has been extraordinarily painful to endure these many months of false accusations of “treason” and other outrageous acts. Such false accusations are contrary to everything I have ever done and stood for. But I recognize that the actions I acknowledged in court today were wrong, and, through my faith in God, I am working to set things right. My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the Special Counsel’s Office reflect a decision I made in the best interests of my family and of our country. I accept full responsibility for my actions.
