It’s probably for the best that President Trump forced retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn to resign as national security adviser when he did.
That’s because Flynn would likely have found himself in another scandal — in addition to the one involving his phone calls with Russia’s ambassador — over a $530,000 lobbying contract he had with a company linked to the Turkish government.
Flynn disclosed a slew of details about that lobbying contract this week in documents filed for his firm, Flynn Intel Group, with the Justice Department under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
The Daily Caller has confirmed, in a follow-up to details in those documents, that Flynn met in New York City on Sept. 19 with Turkey’s ministers of foreign affairs and energy, Mevlut Cavusoglu and Berat Albayrak, respectively.
