Conway joked Thursday afternoon about the charges against Gregory Craig, former White House counsel under the Obama administration, on Twitter, writing: "BREAKING NEWS!
FINALLY! WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL INDICTED in connection with MUELLER investigation!"

The attorney general also wrote in his summary that he had decided against prosecuting Trump for obstruction of justice, a finding on which Mueller's report did not take a position.

Flynn was an administration official for just 24 days before resigning after news reports indicated that he had misled Vice President Pence about his contacts with Russia's ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.

He has not yet been sentenced for the charge of lying to investigators, though Mueller's team has recommended that he not serve jail time. He most recently applied for an extension in his sentencing last month.
