Kredo: Doesn’t Appear Flynn Did Anything Illegal, Just ‘Shady’

Washington Free Beacon senior writer Adam Kredo said during an appearance on One America News Network that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn did not do anything illegal, just "shady," in the months before he resigned from government.

Kredo spoke with host Liz Wheeler about Flynn and the circumstances surrounding his resignation from the Trump administration. Flynn was paid to lobby for Turkey during the 2016 presidential campaign and misled Vice President Mike Pence about conversations he had with Russian officials, the latter of which led to his resignation.

Wheeler asked Kredo if he believes Flynn did anything criminal.

"No, I don't see any evidence of that point," Kredo said. "I think the term ‘shady' is actually kind of appropriate here."

Kredo went on to say it is important that everything be reported to avoid any violation of the law.

"At this point, I don't see anything criminal," Kredo continued. "If they didn't report it [Flynn's lobbying work], that would have been a major issue."

Many congressional Democrats have been critical of Flynn and President Trump's connection with him.
