During a meeting with the FBI interviewers, Flynn denied any discussions of sanctions with Kislyak. However, when the FBI agents asked him whether he was sure in his answer, Flynn said that he did not remember, CNN reported Thursday. If Flynn had lied in his January 24 interview with the FBI, he would be in legal trouble since such a violation is a felony offense, according to media reports.
On Thursday, the White House confirmed that Former Navy SEAL Vice Admiral Robert Harward rejected Trump's offer to replace Michael Flynn as the president's National Security Adviser.
