RT, the Russian state-owned television network described by U.S. intelligence officials as ďthe Kremlinís principal international propaganda outlet,Ē paid $45,386 for former Defense Intelligence Agency Director Michael Flynn to fly to Moscow to speak at its 10th anniversary celebration in December 2015, according to documents newly obtained by a congressional committee and provided to Yahoo News.

At the Russian governmentís expense, Flynn ó who was fired last month as President Trumpís national security adviser ó was accompanied by his son, Michael Flynn Jr., on the three-day, all-expenses-paid trip, where they both stayed at the five-star Hotel Metropol in Moscow next to Red Square, according to documents obtained from Flynnís speakersí bureau, Leading Authorities.

Interesting. Although we really don't know much yet, perhaps this is one of the reason's President Trump was so eager to throw Flynn under the Bus.

And then again, maybe this is all a BS witch hunt.

In any event, Flynn was rather summarily fired BY THE PRESIDENT, and no longer represents the White House and Office of the President, in any way that is important.

I guess giving Russia control of a substantial portion of the US Uranium production in exchange for $500,000 for a speech Billy gave to a Russian investment bank with ties to the Kremlin and donations to the Clinton foundation doesn't count.

I gotta go with Winston here. Stay on the topic.

I don't like what Hillary did but assuming there is a problem with his speaking fees, it doesn't excuse General Flynn. So if we could stay on that topic it might generate a useful thread.

General Flynn had a long and illustrious military career. This isn't going to change that. And if he slipped up here, nothing of substance will come of it.

I don't know about you but I already know what Ms Clinton did, we all do, and she is still walking free. That said, I'd like to know the skinny on these accusations. If it is just another attempt to connect a Russian dot to Trump, with success or failure, then anything about Ms Pants Suit has no bearing on it.

Far more than 45K. Starting price around 250K. Could go far higher depending on additional expectations.
