Michael Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to FBI agents about his conversations with Sergei Kislyak, Russia's ambassador in Washington at the time.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office says Donald Trump's former national security advisor Michael Flynn provided substantial assistance in its investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential election.
Maria Butina was charged with conspiring to act as an agent of Russia "by developing relationships with US persons and infiltrating organizations having influence in American politics."

Comey's remarks are the latest salvo in a war of words with US President Donald Trump, which comes ahead of the release of Comey's memoir later this week.
If the US ends up reinstating sanctions on Iran it will likely push the EU to sweeten the deal for the Iranians. The problem is that this might lead to a conflict between Israel and Hezbollah.
