The Washington Post, citing nine sources, reports that national security advisor Michael Flynn had a phone conversation with Russia’s ambassador to the US, Sergey Kislyak.
The call came soon after President Obama sanctioned Russia for interfering in the election. In the call, Flynn suggests the possibility of sanctions relief once Trump is president. The call is monitored by U.S. intelligence agencies.
Flynn initially denied he had discussed sanctions in an interview with The Post but then amended his comment. He “indicated that while he had no recollection of discussing sanctions, he couldn’t be certain that the topic never came up.”
