WASHINGTON - Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law, directed Michael Flynn, then a Trump adviser, to contact Russian officials around Dec. 22 about a UN resolution regarding Israel, NBC News reported on Friday, citing two people familiar with the matter.

Flynn, who later briefly served as Trump's national security adviser, pleaded guilty earlier on Friday to lying to the FBI about contacts with Russia's ambassador, and prosecutors said he consulted with a senior official in Trump's presidential transition team before speaking to the envoy.
