  • The special counsel’s office pushed back at the suggestion that the FBI acted improperly in its interview of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
  • Flynn lied several times to White House officials about his dialogue with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and repeated those falsehoods when approached by the FBI.
  • The special counsel argued Flynn had agreed on his own to meet with federal agents and did not need a warning that it was against the law to lie to them

WASHINGTON (AP) — The special counsel’s office pushed back Friday at the suggestion that the FBI acted improperly in its interview of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, saying he agreed on his own to meet with federal agents and did not need a warning that it was against the law to lie to them.

The filing from special counsel Robert Mueller comes four days before Flynn gets sentenced on a charge of lying to the FBI about his conversations with the then-Russian ambassador to the United States. It responds to a sentencing memorandum filed earlier this week by Flynn’s lawyers that said the FBI did not warn him that it illegal to lie. It also suggested that agents discouraged him from having a lawyer present.
