ABC News announced that Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross had been suspended for four weeks without pay over a botched “exclusive” about former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Ross’ suspension is effective immediately.

The report raised the specter of Trump’s impeachment and sent the stock market plummeting.
