US: Congressman, Elijah Cummings released documents showing that General Michael Flynn, who resigned as Trump’s national security advisor, received more than $67,000 by Russian companies before the presidential election. For appearing at a Moscow event in December 2015, Flynn accepted $33,750 from Russia Today (RT) news network, which consistently views news from the Russian perspective.. Thousands in expenses also were covered by the network, and speech fees were received from other Russian firms. Cummings says that these payments violated the emoluments provision of the U.S. Constitution, which prohibits government officials from accepting gifts or payments from foreign powers. –GEG
WASHINGTON — Former national security adviser Michael Flynn was paid more than $67,000 by Russian companies before the presidential election, according to documents released Thursday by a Democratic congressman.
Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland asked the Trump administration to provide a comprehensive record of Flynn’s contacts with foreign governments and interests.
Flynn accepted $33,750 from Russia’s government-run television system for appearing at a Moscow event in December 2015 — a few months before Flynn began formally advising President Donald Trump’s campaign — and thousands more in expenses covered by the network and in speech fees from other Russian firms, according to the documents.
Flynn’s financial relationship with the RT network may violate a constitutional provision against gifts from foreign governments, said Cummings, who released documents obtained during the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform’s inquiry into Flynn’s activities before Trump appointed him to become national security adviser.
In addition to the record of Flynn’s foreign contacts, Cummings, the senior Democrat on the committee, also asked the Defense Department to compel Flynn to pay the money he received to the U.S. government.

NBC and its cable affiliate, MSNBC continue to push the fake news that Russia attempted to influence the US presidential election. Tucker Carlson analyses that story and concludes that there still is no evidence of Russian collusion and that is was NBC itself that tried to influence the election – by leaking the Access Hollywood ‘hot-mic’ recording of Trump’s ribald comments about women. When NBC leaked the recording to its news competitor, the Washington Post, which released the story, the effect was a political bomb in the final days of the presidential race. It was a classic case of attempting to affect the outcome of an election. […]
