During his fateful interview with FBI agents at the White House in January 2017, then-National Security Advisor Mike Flynn was given numerous opportunities to describe his prior conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, according to new FBI interview notes released Monday.

In each instance, Flynn denied that he had spoken to Kislyak about Russian sanctions or a pending UN resolution on Israel.

Flynn pleaded guilty guilty last December to lying to the FBI agents about those conversations with Kislyak.

The FBI interview notes — known as 302s – were filed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team in federal court in Washington D.C., where Flynn is scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. The judge in the case ordered the filing of the redacted documents because he deemed them relevant to sentencing.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
