Reports: Team Trump Knew Flynn Was Paid By Turkey, Let Him Make Decision To Delay Military Operation Against ISIS Anyway
DailyWire by Ben Shapiro
The New York Times is now reporting that former Trump National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, who only registered as a foreign agent for the Turkish government after leaving the Trump administration, informed the Trump transition team “weeks before the inauguration” that he was working as a Turkish lobbyist during the 2016 campaign.
According to The Times:
Despite this warning, which came about a month after the Justice Department notified Mr. Flynn of the inquiry, Mr. Trump made Mr. Flynn his national security adviser. The job gave Mr. Flynn access to the president and nearly every secret held by American intelligence agencies. Mr. Flynn’s disclosure, on Jan. 4, was first made to the transition team’s chief lawyer, Donald F. McGahn II, who is now the White House counsel. That conversation, and another one two days later between Mr. Flynn’s lawyer and transition lawyers, shows that the Trump team knew about the investigation of Mr. Flynn far earlier than has been previously reported.
