Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed a formal charge against Flynn ahead of Friday morning’s hearing.
Flynn admitted to lying to agents about a meeting he had last December with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. during the transition period.
During that meeting, Flynn allegedly told the ambassador to refrain from retaliating against the U.S. in response to sanctions the Obama administration imposed that same day.
He also admitted to lying in foreign agent registration materials.
Flynn faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
As of now, no date has been scheduled for his sentencing hearing.
