Michael Flynn got it all backward!
Washington remains appalled at the latest discovery and someone’s going down for this!
Former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn got himself in a lot of trouble after it was reported that he did not inform the federal government’s ethics officials about certain payments from a Russian propaganda outfit.
Flynn submitted his resignment after it was proven that had been communicating with the Russian Ambassador without telling Pence or the other White House officials about it.
After that happened, Flynn explained the matter and resigned accordingly.
However, he failed to mention the $45,000 payment from Russia Today, or RT, in regards to a speech that Flynn gave when the network celebrated 10 years anniversary.
On Friday, the White House got an amended disclosure statement, in which it is stated that Flynn received more than $5,000 from RT.
The FBI is now working on examining all Trump’s officials about possible communication with Russia during the 2016 elections and later on.
RT serves as a booster for Kremlin position on international affairs via affiliate broadcasters in America and Europe both.
Flynn was also shown to have received money from two others Russian companies, the cyber security firm Kaspersky and Volga Dnepr Airlines. Those money transfers were also unreported by Flynn.
Here is what a source close to Flynn stated regarding the matter:
“Gen. Flynn had begun the process of submitting and updating the form, but that process was suspended when he resigned,” the source said. “He therefore submitted the finalized form after he left the White House.”
Guidance from the Office of Government Ethics, which is in charge of analyzing financial disclosure by federal officials, noted that such transfers of money should definitely be reported as per usual, even though we are talking about a freelance deal.
“Report each source of honoraria in excess of $200 as a separate line entry,” OGE advises. “For example, if you gave $500-speeches at three universities through ABC Speakers’ Bureau, report all three sources.”
How do you feel about this? What do you think Donald Trump should do?
