Mike Flynn Pleads Guilty In Special Counsel's Investigation

Outlets report former national security adviser Mike Flynn has pleaded guilty in the probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Flynn was charged with knowingly making false statements to the FBI about his communications with Sergey Kislyak, who was the Russian ambassador to the U.S. at that time.

Flynn has been a central figure in Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Flynn resigned as national security adviser in February after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about discussions he had with that Russian ambassador.

Flynn's plea marks the biggest admission of guilt thus far in Mueller's investigation. He could face up to five years in prison.
