The special counsel’s office will convene a hearing at 10:30 AM EST. At this hearing, former national security adviser Michael Flynn is expected to plead guilty to making a false statement to the FBI.
The statement involved Flynn’s meeting with the Russian ambassador and with discussion of sanctions that were imposed under the Obama administration along with potential Russian responses.
Earlier, Trump policy advisor George Papadopoulos also pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI as part of a deal in which Papadapoulos agreed to cooperate with the special counsel. Multiple reports over the last week have indicated that Flynn is also negotiating to cooperate with the investigation.
