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.
