Former national security adviser Michael Flynn did not properly disclose payments he received from Russia and does not appear to have complied with the law, House Oversight Committee Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings (D-MD) announced Tuesday.
The committee leaders said their review of the documents found "extremely troubling" details. CNN reported that the White House denied the panel's request for documents pertaining to Flynn.
I see no data to support the notion that Gen. Flynn complied with the law.
Flynn did not receive permission from the Pentagon or State Department or disclose the payment of more than $45,000 for a speech he gave to RT in Russia, the committee leaders said.
Here's a clip from the announcement.
Flynn was ultimately forced to resign after it became clear he had not disclosed the payments from Russia. He offered to testify about the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia in exchange for immunity, but one committee rejected him.
