Add Turkey to the list of nations that influenced the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. Michael Flynn was just looking out for Turkey's best interests, while campaigning for Trump. Flynn, the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, forgot to file the necessary paperwork required when you lobby for a foreign government, for four months. But he remembers to write an OpEd piece for The Hill, without disclosing the $ half million Turkey is paying him?
All the while Flynn is sharing this Turkish connection with Trump, but nobody remembers much about it. Although a Trump lawyer does remember advising Flynn back then, twice.
Let us not lose sight of the notion that a former very high ranking U.S. intelligence official went straight to work for multiple foreign governments, even before working for the Trump Campaign. The list of foreign governments Flynn consulted with now includes Turkey, Russia, Syria, Japan, Austria,
Flynn admits attending classified national security briefings with Trump, while working for foreign governments. All this without Flynn disclosing that he is a foreign agent, except to Trump lawyers.
Flynn also admits working for Russia Today, Putin's mouthpiece that poses as a fake news outlet. What was really discussed during Flynn's self-admitted "numerous phone calls with foreign counterparts, ministers and ambassadors?"
In Flynn's own words at the 2016 RNC Convention, "If I did a tenth of what she did, I'd be in jail today."
Jail sounds like a good idea at this point, considering all that Flynn has done.
Am I the only person that finds this disturbing? No, wait, treasonous is the word I was looking for.
