Numerous reports are surfacing that indicate U.S. counterintelligence agents have investigated communications between retired General Michael Flynn and Russian officials.
Flynn, who is currently serving as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, has been investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Central Intelligence Agency, National Security Agency and Treasury Department over phone calls between Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.
The calls took place on December 29, which is the same day former President Barack Obama ordered sanctions on Russia for potentially meddling in the U.S. presidential election through cyber-hacking.
The investigations are coming full circle as the Senate Intelligence Committee is probing into any possible collusion between Russia and members of Mr. Trump’s team.
However, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders released a statement on Sunday night stating the investigations were baseless: “We have absolutely no knowledge of any investigation or even a basis for such an investigation.”
Weeks ago, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer stated the phone calls between Flynn and Kislyak were cordial conversations. “That was it,” Spicer said, “plain and simple.”
