Mueller Removed FBI Agent From Russia Investigation Over Possible Anti-Trump Texts

The people briefed on the case said the transfer followed the discovery of text messages in which Mr. Strzok and a colleague reacted to news events, like presidential debates, in ways that could appear critical of Mr. Trump.

U.S. President Donald Trump's former National Security Adviser, Michael T. Flynn, pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about conversations with the Russian ambassador last December during the presidential transition, bringing the special counsel's probe into the President's inner circle.

As part of the deal, Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to FBI investigators about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to Washington while former president Barack Obama was still in office. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. "There was nothing to hide!" Trump said in a tweet on Saturday. President Donald Trump and many of his supporters have sought to discredit the investigation, in part by claiming a close relationship between Mueller and fired FBI Director James Comey and by pointing to political contributions to Democratic candidates made by some lawyers on the team. Court records say Flynn contacted the Russian ambassador on December 22 about the Trump administration's opposition to a United Nations resolution against Israeli settlements.

Flynn's statements about his Russian Federation contacts and his 2016 consulting work for a Turkish client both came under scrutiny by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The retired lieutenant general admitted in a Washington court that he lied to FBI investigators about his discussions last December with Russia's then-ambassador to the United States, Sergei Kislyak.

Michael Flynn Jr., as he is known, accompanied his father on his 2015 trip to Moscow.

A former senior Trump administration official said Strzok was even-handed in all of his dealing with the Trump White House.

During his testimony to Congress in June, Comey said Trump asked him in February to drop the FBI investigation into Flynn centering on his calls with Kislyak during the transition.

CNN reported that a source familiar with the investigation said Kushner is the "very senior" transition official mentioned in the documents.

In his resignation at the time, Flynn apologized for giving an inaccurate assessment of his conversation with Kislyak to Pence when the latter was still vice president-elect.

Flynn is cooperating with Mueller's team, according to court papers.

First, Trump is incorrect that it's "been shown" that there were no collusion between his presidential campaign and the Russians during last year's election. "There's been absolutely no collusion, so we're very happy".
