Anti-Trump messages cost FBI agent spot on Mueller team

  • Trump slams DOJ and FBI in weekend tweet storm

The developments are a sign that the investigation is intensifying, and details revealed Friday provide the clearest picture yet of coordination between Flynn and other Trump advisers in their contact with Russian officials to influence global policy. Until now, the White House has claimed that Trump fired Flynn just because he lied to Pence.

Michael Flynn, an early supporter of the president and former national security adviser, admitted he lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contact with Russian officials.

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu, of California, also reacted on Twitter.

A top FBI official working on special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the election was removed over the summer after it was revealed that he'd allegedly sent anti-Trump text messages. The key question now is what Flynn knows that could incriminate others and what he might have offered in exchange for such a lenient plea deal. He is a good guy.

The former army officer has now also agreed to work with the Mueller investigation which is examining links between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

A person familiar with the transition's effort on the United Nations vote said it was well-known and a collaborative effort by various transition officials, including Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon, Flynn and Kushner, adding that none of them "ordered" or "directed" the others and all were working towards the same goal of standing by Israel.

So far, four people have been charged as a result of Mueller's investigation.

Engel said "it seems that more evidence is uncovered every day" about contacts between the Trump team and Russian Federation as the latter sought to intervene in the 2016 presidential election. The New York Times reported Strozok exchanged messages with a colleague in reacting to news events in ways that could construed to be critical of Trump.

"Comey wrote in his opening testimony that Trump said: "'I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, said Mueller removed the agent, Peter Strzok, from the team "immediately upon learning of the allegations". She was joined in the meeting by a senior career official in the Justice Department.

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.

The Justice Department's inspector general has been looking into Strzok's actions and indicated in a statement today that the review is part of broader investigations announced in January of how the FBI and Justice Department handled matters associated with the 2016 presidential election.
