The FBI folded Flynn into an official investigation into the possibility that Team Trump colluded with Russia, an inquiry that began in July 2016 after the us intelligence community picked up reports of a pattern of odd contacts between the Trump campaign and an assortment of Russians.
Trump names Flynn as his national security advisor. According to the Wall Street Journal, four individuals have told federal investigators that the meeting included discussion of a Turkish proposal to forcibly detain Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish dissident cleric living in exile in Pennsylvania, and deliver him to Turkey, in exchange for up to $15 million.

Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. At a time when tensions were hightened between the U.S. and Russia, Flynn was asked about whether he discussed sanctions against the country with the ambassador before he took office.
A report from the Washington Post then said that Flynn has indeed discussed sanctions, reportedly causing rifts with senior colleagues who had defended him. Flynn's decision to admit to these lies and cooperate with the Special Counsel occurred, if press reports are to be believed, with the backdrop of broad legal exposure by Flynn, in addition to his son.
