ABC News issued a correction regarding a story it reported earlier on Friday about President Donald Trump and former national security adviser Michael Flynn's alleged contact with Russian officials, the Washington Examiner reported Friday.

The initial report claimed Trump asked Flynn to contact Russian officials while still a candidate. The correction, according to the network, was that the president made the request to Flynn after he was elected president while making preparations to transition into office.

ABC called the correction a "significant detail" regarding the probe into claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

"A clarification tonight on something one of Flynn's confidants told us and we reported earlier today," Brian Ross reported during ABC News' "World News Tonight" on Friday.

"He said the president had asked Flynn to contact Russia during the campaign. He's now clarifying that, saying according to Flynn, candidate Trump asked him during the campaign to find ways to repair relations with Russia and other hot spots, and then after the election, the president-elect asked him, told him to contact Russia on issues, including working together to fight ISIS," Ross said.
