Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn is expected to plead guilty for lying to the FBI.

According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, a plea hearing has been scheduled in Washington D.C. federal court.

Flynn has been under investigation for his dealings with Russia both before and after the Trump presidential campaign.

He is the first of Trump’s administration to have charges levied against him involving Russian collusion, while four others related to the campaign have already been indicted.
