In the short time prior to Trump’s inauguration, former-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn apparently rejected a military strategy Turkey did not favor—one that entailed the targeting of ISIS. The method in question involved the Syrian Kurdish military in Raqqa—again, Turkey wasn’t at all on board with it.
While President Trump terminated Flynn in February 2017, the former adviser had a $530,000 lobbying deal set up preceding Election Day—operating as a foreign agent.
According to Justice Department Agent Registration Unit documents, the March records availed Flynn and his crew had booked themselves to do lobby work from August to November—a project that “could be construed to have principally benefited the Republic of Turkey.”
Not long after Team Trump came to power, Obama’s national-security outfit requested President Trump to sign off on seizing control of Islamic State central (Raqqa)—it was foreseen this plan would happen during Trump’s reign. However, Congressional members circulated evidence of Flynn telling then-National Security Adviser Susan Rice to table the aforementioned action until further notice.
It was post-Flynn that President Trump greenlighted said strategy—re: Flynn giving VP Pence and White House members faulty information alluding to Trump having questionable connections with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak (this sealed Flynn’s fate).
Recall March 2017 when Flynn came forward to the Justice Department’s Foreign Agent Unit Registration Unit of him and his people being contracted for activities that “could be construed to have principally benefited the Republic of Turkey.”
This information resurfaces simultaneously with the ongoing accusations of Flynn and Team Trump in cahoots with Russia. It was May 17th that the DOJ appointed former-FBI Director Robert Mueller to head up the ongoing Trump-Russia ordeal. Mueller was imbued with much authority—such as the ability to dish out federal charges when necessary. House and Senate intelligence committees are assisting Mueller in his effort(s).
