'Absolutely no collusion': Trump responds to Flynn's guilty plea

"Peter Strzok, as deputy head of counterintelligence at the FBI, was a key player in the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server to do government work as secretary of state, as well as the probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation in the 2016 election".

Trump's Saturday afternoon tweet, reportedly sent while stuck in his Manhattan motorcade, appears to show that Trump knew his former national security adviser Flynn - who pled guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation yesterday - had lied at the time.

At the time of Flynn's dismissal, the White House acknowledged only that Flynn had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about what he discussed with the ambassador - sanctions imposed by then-president Barack Obama against Russian Federation for meddling in the election. Trump said in a tweet.

After naming Flynn to head the National Security Council in January, Trump forced him from the position less than a month later. When Mr. Trump fired his F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, in May, he initially cited his handling of the Clinton email investigation as the reason for his dismissal.

The president added that "no collusion" has been shown and reiterated, "There's been absolutely no collusion so we're very happy". In court documents filed Friday, Flynn said he had conversations about those calls with officials of Trump's transition team including one senior member. He is a good guy.

Trump has been publicly dismissive of Comey and of special counsel Robert Mueller's continuing investigation, and was often generous in his appraisal of Flynn, except to say his adviser could not stay on the job after misleading his vice president.

Critics claimed on Saturday that President Trump inadvertently admitted to obstruction of justice as he tried to distance himself from his disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"What has been shown is no collusion, no collusion", Mr Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for the NY trip.

The development came at a particularly sensitive moment for the White House, just as Mr. Trump and Republican congressional leaders are toiling to hold together a tenuous coalition to push through a large tax cut plan. When asked if he was anxious what the former national security advisor will tell the special counsel, the president responded, "No, I'm not".

The revelations also undermine Trump's often repeated contention that the Russian Federation investigation is little more than a witch hunt being perpetrated by his political enemies.
