Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI regarding his contact with a Russian ambassador.

Flynn is the fourth person to be charged in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Here’s who has been charged so far:

He was only Trump’s national security adviser for less than a month, but Michael Flynn still bedevils the administration. Flynn was charged and pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI.

Court documents show Flynn has told investigators a “very senior member” of the Trump transition team directed him to contact foreign governments, including Russia, over a United Nations vote – discussions tied to one of Flynn’s false statements.

Along with his former business associate, Paul Manafort turned himself in to federal authorities in October and remains under house arrest. Manafort, 68, served as Trump’s campaign manager for a few months in 2016.

The charges against him include: conspiracy against the U.S., conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading [Foreign Agents Registration Act] statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign bank and financial accounts, a spokesperson for the Special Counsel’s Office told Fox News.

The charges are related to consulting work Manafort and his colleague did for Ukraine. Manafort pleaded not guilty to the charges.

A former foreign policy adviser to Trump’s campaign, George Papadopoulos, pleaded guilty in October to making false statements to the FBI.

Papadopoulos was charged with willfully and knowingly making false statements to FBI agents regarding “the timing, extent and nature of his relationships and interactions with certain foreign nationals whom he understood to have close connections with senior Russian government officials,” according to court documents.

Trump said “few people” knew of Papadopoulos on the campaign.
