House Oversight Committee: No indication Flynn followed the law

Hosted by

Michael Flynn, the President’s first National Security Advisor, is back in the news. The House Oversight Committee says he may have broken the law by taking $45,000 for a speech he made on RT-TV in Moscow.  The Committee’s Republican Chairman, Jason Chaffetz of Utah, announced, "Personally I see no information or no data to support the notion that General Flynn complied with the law." Isaac Arnsdorf, who reports for Politico, says Flynn violated the Emoluments Clause by not notifying the Pentagon of his trip or payment he received for it.
