Fake Controversy Fueled by Democrats: Kremlin weighs on Michael Flynn saying Trump's National Security Adviser DIDN'T discuss lifting Russian sanctions in call with ambassador

 This whole thing is much ado about nothing because even if Michael Flynn did do what he's being accused of by Democrats, no laws were broken. 
This story is Democrat invented scandal to delegitimize the Trump administration.   
Daily Mail reports the Kremlin has weighed in on the Michael Flynn furore by saying Donald Trump's National Security Adviser did not discuss lifting Russian sanctions in a call with the ambassador. 

Flynn allegedly held secretive phone calls with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak before Trump stepped into the Oval Office in which he promised the easing of sanctions imposed by Barack Obama.

If he did, that would put him in breach of the 1799 Logan Act, which bans private citizens from negotiating with foreign powers that are in dispute with the US.

But Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Flynn and Kislyak had not discussed sanctions on Moscow in the phone call as the Kremlin announced Vladimir Putin and Trump could meet before the G20 summit in July.
