'You never know about an ally. An ally can turn,' Trump said, which the sources revealed was intended as a swipe at Flynn.

'You understand. You're going to find that out.'

Now, about a week later, Trumps alleged fears came true with Flynn.

The former trusted aide pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about contacts with Russia and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors delving deeper into the actions of Trump's inner circle before he took office in January.??

A federal statement of offense against Flynn states that a 'very senior' member of the Trump transition team 'directed' Flynn to reach out to foreign leaders about a UN resolution – 'including Russia' – to find out where the leaders stood.

He said in a statement: 'After over thirty-three years of military service to our country including five years in combat away from my family and then my decision to continue to serve the United States, it has been extraordinarily painful to endure these many months of false accusations of treason and other outrageous acts.'?

'My guilty plea and agreement to cooperate with the special counsel's office reflect a decision I made in the best interest of my family and of our country. I accept full responsibility for my actions,' Flynn said in a statement.??
