2 p.m.

After pleading guilty to a felony in a federal courthouse, former national security adviser Michael Flynn was seen visiting his son in Virginia.

Flynn arrived Friday at Michael Flynn Jr.'s house, dressed casually and wearing sunglasses. He was greeted at the door by his son carrying a child.

Earlier, the retired Army lieutenant general pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI while serving in the administration about contacts with the Russian ambass ador.

In a statement released Friday, Flynn says he's cooperating with an investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller. That investigation is examining potential contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Flynn also says he's been subjected to false accusations of treason.

The top Democrats on the Senate and House intelligence committees are warning President Donald Trump against trying to influence investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia and Congressman Adam Schiff of California issued statements Friday, after former national security adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

Warner and Schiff say it would be unacceptable for Trump to try to influence any investigations, including the probes their committees are conducting.

Warner refers to an "alarming patt ern" by Trump, including the president's firing of former FBI Director James Comey. Schiff speculated that Flynn's plea may prompt the White House and its allies to try to curtail congressional investigations or try to end Mueller's probe prematurely. Schiff says Congress "must make clear" that would be unacceptable.

The White House has cancelled a scheduled opportunity for reporters to question President Donald Trump about former national security adviser Michael Flynn's guilty plea.

The public White House schedule had said that reporters would be allowed to document part of Trump's meeting with Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj.

During these media events, called "pool sprays," reporters usually pepper the president with questions. Trump often answers, using opportunity to deliver his message directly to voters.

Reporters had been lined up outside the Oval Office, wa iting to enter the room, when White House staffers marched them back into the press room.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters then told them the media event would not happen.

Earlier, Trump ignored shouted questions about Flynn as he greeted the prime minister at the door.

President Donald Trump is not answering questions about former national security adviser Michael Flynn's guilty plea to lying to the FBI.

Trump did not respond to shouted questions Friday morning as he welcomed Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Serraj to the White House. He waved and flashed a thumbs up.

The Libyan leader arrived Friday morning. The White House has said they will discuss reaffirming U.S. support for Libya's unity government and help stabilizing the country.

White House lawyer Ty Cobb says nothing about Flynn's guilty plea "implicates anyone other than Mr. Flynn." Cobb pointedly noted that Flynn wo rked in the White House for only 25 days.

Trump has previously referred to Flynn as a "wonderful man."

It's the first plea by any of the four former advisers to President Donald Trump charged so far in the wide-ranging investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Flynn has been under investigation for a wide range of allegations, including his lobbying work on behalf of Turkey, but the fact that he was charged only with a single count of making false statements suggests he is cooperating with Mueller's investigation in exchange for leniency.
