Special Counsel Robert Mueller on Monday evening filed FBI notes from January 2017 detailing an interview two agents had with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Last December, Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations he had with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak after the 2016 presidential election and before President Trump's inauguration. The heavily-redacted notes were filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., one day before Flynn's scheduled sentencing.
The notes say that Flynn was asked several times if he spoke to Kislyak about Russian sanctions or tried to influence Russia's vote on a pending United Nations vote condemning Israeli settlements, and he said no. At one point, Flynn said he "has no particular affinity for Russia," but Kislyak "was his counterpart, and maintaining trusted relationships within foreign governments is important."
