Cumming’s letter came on top of several articles pointing up Flynn’s Turkish lobbying, and that his lobbying firm was benefiting from Flynn’s association with Trump.
Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a vice chair of the Trump transition who is in the running for a top national security post in the new administration, runs a consulting firm that is lobbying for Turkish interests, an associate told POLITICO. Asked if Flynn's firm was hired because of the general's closeness to Trump, the associate, Robert Kelley, said, "I hope so."
Representative Cummings could not have been more explicit in his statements.
"Recent news reports have revealed that Lt. Gen. Flynn was receiving classified briefings during the presidential campaign while his consulting firm, Flynn Intel Group, Inc., was being paid to lobby the U.S. Government on behalf of a foreign government’s interests," Cummings wrote.
And yet, both Trump and Pence are now claiming they were “unaware” of Flynn’s role is as a registered foreign agent. That’s what happens when you don’t listen to Democrats and only read the fake news being generated by the office next door.
Yes, Sean. Shouldn’t you have known that?
