Michael Flynn`s actions during the transition `were lawful`: Donald Trump

The filings from Flynn's plea hearing Friday say a "very senior member" of Trump's transition team asked Flynn to contact officials from UN Security Council countries, including Russian Federation, to learn where each country stood on the vote on a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity and "to influence those governments to delay the vote or defeat the resolution".

During the Clinton investigation, Strzok was involved in a romantic relationship with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

Original post, 5:22 p.m.: So, Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to a single charge of lying to the FBI and is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Mr. Mueller's investigators have learned through witnesses and documents that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked the Trump transition team to lobby other countries to help Israel, according to two people briefed on the inquiry.

"Frankly last night was one of the big nights", Trump said, referring to the Senate's passage of its bill. When Mr. Trump fired his F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, in May, he initially cited his handling of the Clinton email investigation as the reason for his dismissal.

The Justice Department's Office of the Inspector General is already conducting a review of actions of the DOJ and the Federal Bureau of Investigation during last year's election and it said Saturday that the revelations about Strzok and Page would be included in that review.

"I replied only that 'he is a good guy.'" Comey wrote, describing a private meeting with Trump in the Oval Office on February 14, one day after Flynn was sacked; Comey then added: "I did not say I would 'let this go'".

The president's comments come the day after his former national security adviser pleaded guilty to lying about his contacts with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Speaking Saturday about Flynn's plea deal, the president reiterated that there had been no coordination between his campaign and Russian Federation.

The New York Times said that a lawyer for Strzok declined to comment, while the Washington Post said it repeatedly sought comment from Strzok, but received no response.

A New York Times report from April 2017, "Comey Tried to Shield the F.B.I".

As acting attorney general at the end of the Obama administration, Yates and another Justice Department official went to the White House on January 26 to warn White House counsel Don McGahn that Flynn was potentially compromised and vulnerable to blackmail because of discrepancies between the public accounting of the Kislyak conversation and what actually occurred. In apparent reference to the case, the Justice Department inspector general's office said in a statement on Saturday that it was "reviewing allegations involving communications between certain individuals".

The statement didn't refer to any agents or officials by name.
