ABC News: Flynn prepared to testify against Trump

Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty today to lying to the FBI, has reportedly promised "full cooperation" with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team, per ABC. Flynn is prepared to testify that Donald Trump directed him to contact the Russians as president-elect, not as a candidate, ABC News reports, correcting their earlier report.

Why it matters: Trump has denied having, or being aware of, any contact with the Russians during the campaign. A former senior aide to Flynn and ABC contributor, Richard Frankel, said "if there are bodies buried so to speak, General Flynn would know about them."
