Ex-Trump adviser charged with lying to FBI

Michael Flynn, the former US national security adviser, has pleaded guilty to making false statements.

National security advisor for only three weeks, Michael Flynn's activities and outreach to Russian officials have added a twist to the ongoing Russia investigation in the US.

The charges of lying were in relation to his conversation with the Russian ambassador before US President Donald Trump took office.

Flynn admitted to lying to the FBI about the details of the conversation which included Russian reactions to Obama-era sanctions.
