Flynn's New Financial Forms Reveal Russia Connection

Flynn's New Financial Forms Reveal Russia Connection

In the amended form, he disclosed that he was paid a $10,000 speaking fee by Kurtulus in October 2016. Both the White House and Prince deny this was on behalf of the Trump administration.

"At the time at the General resigned he had just begun the process of submitting the form and consulting with White House counsel and Office of Government Ethics", the source said. How does the White House know that these are the same materials that were shown to the Chairman if the White House wasn't aware of what the Chairman was being shown?

Trump said the firing was because Flynn lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his discussions with the Russian ambassador to the United States during the presidential transition period.

Flynn seems to have an ongoing problem with disclosing things. According to his financial snapshot, Flynn received $827,055 in salary and bonus from his firm, Flynn Intel Group, alone.

In a form signed by Flynn on March 31, the former White House official listed speaking engagements to Russian entities, including the Kremlin-funded RT TV, Volga-Dnepr Airlines and Kaspersky Government Security Solutions Inc, a USA subsidiary of Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab.


On Friday, the Associated Press reported that Flynn's attorney and a congressional aide present at the meetings said that immunity was discussed, but it was too early in the proceedings for any terms to be set. The US intelligence community has long assessed RT to be a propaganda tool of the Kremlin, writing in a January report on Russian interference in the US election that the organization had participated in disinformation campaigns aimed at the US. "We're going to talk about the Flynn deal", Graham said at a town hall on Saturday. The subsequent disclosure does not list how all of his compensation broke down monetarily, however, but is reveals sources that paid him $5,000 or more in a year. He also received payments for speaking engagements with two other firms that have Russian ties, Volga-Dnepr Airlines and the cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Government Security Solutions.

The offer caught the eye of the president, who tweeted: "Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!"

Any decision to offer Flynn immunity would come from US attorneys and the Department of Justice.

But Schiff's visit to the White House to review what he said was the same intelligence Nunes reviewed only opened a new wound. White House chief strategist Steve Bannon made up to $2.5 million.

After viewing the documents at the White House himself, Schiff asked how administration officials knew the documents he viewed were the same that were shown to Nunes.
