FBI clears Mike Flynn over his contacts with Russian ambassador
The FBI has reviewed intercepted phone calls between national security adviser Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the US and has found no evidence of wrongdoing, it was revealed Monday.This also raises serious questions about the Obama administration officials who said Flynn was "compromised" because of the talks. I have been saying that the talks were perfectly legal and in no way compromised Flynn. It also damages the Democrats assertion that Trump was "obstructing justice" when he asked Comey to "let the Flynn case go."
The calls were made in late December and picked up as part of routine electronic surveillance of Russian officials. They did not reveal any illicit ties between Flynn and Russia, according to the Washington Post.
