Pence: I Now Think Flynn Lied To Me Unintentionally

Axios reports:

Vice President Mike Pence told reporters Thursday that following the release of new FBI documents, he is “more inclined to believe” that former national security adviser Michael Flynn unintentionally lied to him in 2017 about the nature of his conversation with former Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Why it matters: Flynn was forced to resign for misleading Pence and later pleaded guilty in the Mueller investigation to lying to FBI agents about speaking to Kislyak about Russian sanctions, which the Obama administration had imposed for election interference.

Flynn is now seeking to withdraw his guilty plea, claiming that prosecutors acted in “bad faith” and sought to entrap him.
