Trump knew Michael Flynn lied to FBI before firing Comey

President Trump’s personal lawyer, John Dowd, told Washingtonpost that before firing FBI director James Comey, the president knew in late January, 2017 that then-national security adviser, Michael Flynn had lied to the FBI by giving them the same inaccurate account he provided to Vice President Pence about a call with the Russian ambassador. Flynn’s lie was blown open by U.S. intelligence who intercepted the phone call between Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Flynn was fired by President Trump for misleading Vice-president Pence about the nature of his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
