officials who read the transcript of the phone conversation told The Washington Post Flynn's communications with Kislyak was potentially illegal and that Kislyak could assume the discussion meant Moscow could expect a reprieve from sanctions imposed by Obama's administration. The conversation may have broken a law against private citizens engaging in diplomacy and contradicts statements made by Trump's advisers, who said the conversation was merely to arrange a phone call between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
officials said that while sanctions were discussed, they did not see evidence to prove that Flynn had made an explicit promise to take action related to sanctions following the inauguration. The FBI is currently investigating Flynn's communication with Kislyak.

"Flynn took that call," Spicer said, adding that it "centered on the logistics of setting up a call with the president of Russia and [Trump] after the election." Flynn on Wednesday denied discussing sanctions with Kislyak, but Flynn's spokesman on Thursday said Flynn was not sure whether sanctions were discussed.
officials said national security adviser Michael Flynn privately discussed U. sanctions against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak weeks before President Donald Trump was inaugurated. 28, as word of Obama's sanctions spread, Kislyak sent a message to Flynn requesting a call.
The officials said the discussion was unambiguous and highly inappropriate since Flynn was a civilian at the time of the discussion. Flynn "indicated that while he had no recollection of discussing sanctions, he couldn't be certain that the topic never came up," the spokesman said.
Trump's administration previously denied Flynn had discussed sanctions with Kislyak. 13, Sean Spicer, the White House's press secretary, said Flynn sent Kislyak holiday greetings on Christmas Day and on Dec.

Mr Trump, who has been conspicuously quiet about Mr Flynn’s standing for several days, said on twitter that the real “story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington?
