On Friday, retired Lt. General Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI.

The announcement swallowed up the news cycle into the weekend, but there wasn't a response from President Donald Trump. Until now.

Saturday morning, Trump tweeted:

The tweet generated a massive response, with some attorneys accusing the president of an obstruction of justice:

Trump also talked about the Flynn news on camera Saturday. The president was asked if he was concerned about what Flynn would tell special counsel Robert Mueller. “No, I'm not, and what has been shown is no collusion, no collusion.
