You follow me, Ambassador?””I understand what you’re saying, but you know, you might appreciate the sentiments that are raging now in Moscow,” Kislyak replied.Flynn then renewed his request that Russia retaliate on “sort of an even basis.””That is a good message and we’ll understand that message,” the incoming national security adviser said. “And then, we know that we’re not going to escalate this thing, where we, where because if we put out if we send out 30 guys and you send out 60, you know, or you shut down every Embassy, I mean we have to get this to a let’s, let’s keep this at a level that uh is, is even keeled, okay?”He added that when “we come in, we can then have a better conversation about where, where we’re gonna go, uh, regarding uh, regarding our relationship.”Flynn also highlighted that the US and Russia has a “common enemy” in the Middle East, adopting a common Russian talking point.The December conversation between Flynn and Kislyak was at the center of the FBI’s investigation of Flynn as part of the bureau’s inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election.The transcript of the conversation was released to Congress on Friday as part of a batch of declassified transcripts detailing communications between Flynn and Kislyak from January 2016 and December 2016, including in the weeks before Trump was inaugurated as president.Flynn in December 2017 pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about that conversation during a January 2017 interview with prosecutors. But he later tried to withdraw his guilty plea after his defense attorney alleged prosecutorial misconduct and entrapment on the part of the FBI.Earlier this month, the Justice Department abruptly dropped its case against Flynn, even though the former national security adviser already pleaded guilty and a federal judge ruled the plea permissible in court.Late last month, the Justice Department also turned over four pages of records to Flynn’s legal team showing how the FBI debated handling his interview in early 2017.”If we’re seen as playing games, WH will be furious,” one page of the notes said.
