That appears to be so in Friday's indictment of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn – and in the broader investigation of the Trump team's contacts with Russia.Why was Flynn lying about the Kislyak calls?The prosecutors say that Flynn cleared his comments to Kislyak beforehand with an unnamed official who is described as "a senior official of the Presidential Transition Team" who was staying with Trump at Mar-a-Lago.The most senior levels of the Trump transition team were aware, from the first, of what really happened.Given that Trump publicly thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin on Dec. 30 for not retaliating, it has always been hard to believe that Trump wasn't aware of the Flynn-Kislyak discussions.The next day, Trump met privately with then-FBI director James Comey.This part of the circle closed Friday, as Mueller obtained a guilty plea from the man Trump had sought to protect from investigation.
