Author: Trump Pressured Flynn to Be National Security Adviser


According to its sources, Trump "misses his conversations with Flynn" and is "struggling to connect" with his new national security adviser. The job gave Mr. Flynn access to the president and almost every secret held by American intelligence agencies.

Michael Flynn reportedly told Donald Trump and his transition team he was under investigation weeks before the president moved into the White House.

In December, before Trump assumed office, Flynn talked to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak about potentially lifting USA sanctions President Barack Obama had just levied on Russia.

Another bombshell claim, also published by the Times and regarding the leaked Comey memo, alleges that Trump asked the former FBI Director to end his investigation into Flynn back in February.

In March, White House press secretary Sean Spicer claimed Manafort played a "very limited role for a very limited amount of time" in Trump's presidential campaign.

Flynn, who ended up being fired from the position after just 24 days, is at the center of a sprawling federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election. Not only did he remain loyal to President Trump; he indicated that he and the president were still in communication.

The New York Times has reviewed one of the subpoenas. It begun with Trump's firing of FBI director James Comey, and pirouetted neatly round, just days later, to reveal that the president reportedly asked Comey to drop an investigation into Michael Flynn's ties with Russian Federation.

An attorney who represents Flynn did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC.

President Trump's short-lived National Security Advisor, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, has emerged as a central figure in ongoing investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, which Former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed to oversee as special counsel on Wednesday. They spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid angering Justice Department or White House officials.

The investigation stems from the work Flynn did for Inovo BV, a Dutch company owned by Alptekin, the Turkish businessman.

Flynn, who was sacked from his position in February, registered as a foreign agent shortly afterwards.

Oh, and the Daily Beast has published word from at least three sources who say that a "reluctant" Flynn did not want the national security advisor gig (citing a desire to keep his private life), but Trump pressured him into taking the job.

"He did not want to be national security adviser", Michael Ledeen, who co-authored the book "The Field of Flight" past year with Flynn, told The Daily Beast. The lawyer, William McGinley, was seeking more information about the nature of the group's foreign work and wanted to know whether Flynn had been paid for the op-ed. The article spiked a series of eyebrows, and prompted the Justice Department to inform Flynn that it was looking into his lobbying.

Flynn hired a lawyer a few weeks later. However, Flynn wasn't fired until 18 days later.

Kelner then followed up with another call to the Trump transition's legal team. While the GOP national security establishment lined up against Trump, Flynn advised his campaign on how to improve its foreign policy message and touted that message on cable news. According to a person familiar with the case, Kelner did not get a call back until two days later, on January 6.
