National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn, under fire for allegedly discussing U.S. sanctions against Russia with a Russian ambassador to the United States, apologized to Vice President Mike Pence for telling him otherwise, Fox News reports.

Flynn will not resign despite calls to do so by lawmakers, Fox News' Jennifer Griffin reports.

"If this new report is accurate, it raises grave questions about whether General Flynn was dishonest with the American people, whether he misled his own White House colleagues, or whether White House officials knew about his secret dealings with Russia and misled the public themselves," Rep. Elijah Cummings said last week. "To this day, Gen. Flynn refuses to disclose how much he was paid when he had dinner with Vladimir Putin in apparent violation of the Constitution's ban on foreign emoluments."

Flynn originally denied talking about the sanctions to Pence, who repeated the information in an interview last month. But The Washington Post last week cited current and former U.S. officials who said Flynn had discussed in detail the penalties with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The Post also reported that the FBI is continuing its investigation into the matter.
