Ret. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, beneficiary of Russia paychecks
In late 2015, Russia’s state-run RT paid Flynn to appear and participate in an interview at a Moscow gala it was hosting.
At the event, Flynn not only advocated a more pro-Russia U.S. foreign policy, but also even got seated right next to Vladimir Putin, himself.
Trump brought Flynn on as a foreign policy adviser despite the fact that Trump just last night claimed that he’d ban any “senior officials” from accepting speaking fees from “any entity tied to a foreign government.”
And at today’s classified briefing, Flynn will be sitting right next to Donald Trump.
