FBI clears Michael Flynn in probe linking him to Russia
The FBI has reviewed intercepted phone calls between national security adviser Michael Flynn and the Russian ambassador to the US and has found no evidence of wrongdoing, it was revealed Monday.
The calls were made in late December and picked up as part of routine electronic surveillance of Russian officials. They did not reveal any illicit ties between Flynn and Russia, according to the Washington Post
The review of the calls was part of a wider probe into Russia’s interference in the presidential election and hacking of the Democratic National Committee.

This story is from January 2017.........
Additionally, this is in regards to an extremely small part of the Russia investigation. Specifically, just intercepted phone calls. Also, this happened well before most of the damaging information about Flynn came out and well before he was fired or pleaded guilty.
A lot more happened after this news broke almost two years ago.

Please try to keep up. He was charged with making false statements over his testimony that he hadn't discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador. Discussion of the sanctions wasn't illegal in any way, but had he admitted they were discussed, he'd not have been appointed National Security Advisor, mainly because the media would have overreacted and shat bricks about the whole thing. He plead guilty because he lacked the funds to continue to deal with Mueller's horsecrap, which was intentionally drawn out to ensure anyone under investigation would be hemmoraging legal fund money throughout Mueller's witch hunt.
