On Friday, ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross reported that he was told by a confidante that former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is ready to testify “against President Trump,” and that then-candidate Trump ordered him to make contact with the Russians.
Ross said, “He has promised full cooperation to the Mueller team. He’s prepared to testify, we are told by a confidante, against President Trump, against members of the Trump family, and others in the White House. He is prepared to testify that President Trump, as a candidate…ordered him and directed him to make contact with the Russians, which contradicts all that Donald Trump has said at this point.”
Ross added that he was told Flynn only made the decision to cooperate in the last 24 hours, and did so in the face of mounting legal bills.
