washington - The US Department of Defense has warned Michael Flynn, the former security advisor of the Trump government, not to accept payments from foreign powers. This is evidenced by a October 2014 document that the Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings presented on Thursday.
The letter states that Flynn, as retired general, should not accept money from other governments without permission. According to the New York Times, Flynn received just over a year from the Russian news network RT, a state-owned enterprise, $ 45,000 for a speech.
Cummings said he had zero comma zero evidence that Flynn informed the Pentagon about this disaster, even though his lawyer said. Flynn was until 2014 head of the military intelligence service (DIA). In 2015, he traveled to Moscow on an invitation from RT, where he was allowed to sit next to President Vladimir Putin during a gala. For this and other performances in Russia he would have raised a total of $ 67,000.
