Special Counsel’s Office Zeros In On Flynn

Aug 7, 2017

The Special Counsel’s office asked the White House for documents “concerning former national security adviser Mike Flynn.” The special counsel’s office is interested in Flynn’s ties to the Turkish government. Particularly whether or not Flynn received payment from Turkey in the final months of the campaign. Flynn filed his third financial-disclosure form recently. The updated forms show “money he received for Russia-related groups and his contract work with a data mining company that helped Trump’s campaign.” Flynn was fired as national security adviser when it was discovered that he’d mislead the vice-president about his communications with former Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. An attorney working for President Trump said, “We’ve said before we’re collaborating with the special counsel on an ongoing basis. It’s full cooperation mode as far as we are concerned.”
