Trump Defends Michael Flynn’s “Lawful” Actions

CBS News reports:

President Trump spoke publicly Saturday morning for the first time since his former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI on Friday.

“What has been shown is no collusion, no collusion,” Mr. Trump said, responding to a reporter’s question about whether the Flynn plea worries him before pivoting to a major tax bill the Senate passed just before 2 a.m. Saturday.

“We’ll see what happens,” added the president, who is on his way to New York for a series of fundraisers. Shortly after, the president tweeted that he fired Flynn because he lied to the vice president.
