Brian Ross, citing a Flynn confidant, said, “[Flynn] is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate… ordered him, directed him to make contact with the Russians.”

“A clarification tonight on something one of Flynn’s confidants told us and we reported earlier today. He said the President had asked Flynn to contact Russia during the campaign. He’s now clarifying that, saying according to Flynn, candidate Trump asked him during the campaign to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots, and then after the election, the President-elect asked him, told him to contact Russia on issues, including working together to fight ISIS.”

You can watch above, via ABC News.
