General Flynn's Factual Basis for entering into a guilty plea to providing False Statements to the FBI reflected information that goes contrary to the Democrat dominated news media's narrative of Russian "collusion." The Factual Basis showed the incoming Trump administration had asked the Russian Ambassador to NOT escalate or retaliate against America for newly imposed sanctions and expelling of more than 30 Russian diplomats by the Obama administration. The Basis also showed the Trump administration contacting UN Security Council members, including Russia, to delay or cancel a Resolution condemning Israeli settlements on the West Bank. In an extraordinary move, the Obama administration "abstained" from voting on that Resolution instead of vetoing it. So, it was the new incoming Trump administration that tried to protect American interests and its closest ally in the Middle East, Israel, which has assisted us in many untold ways in our fight against Islamic extremists.
