    Read today that Flynn just took a job as a lobbyist for Turkey at a whooping big salary. Real Patriot, he is.

    Read my post #20 and the article you cited. Flynn didn't just took a job as a lobbyist for Turkey, he had one while being Presidential Candidate Trump's advisor last year. The interesting part of the article you cite is this:

    Flynn wrote an op-ed published in The Hill on Election Day arguing that the U.S. should not provide "safe haven" to Fethullah Gülen, the Pennsylvania-based cleric who the Turkish government has accused of masterminding this summer's failed coup. (Gülen denies the allegation.)

    "We need to see the world from Turkey’s perspective," Flynn wrote. "What would we have done if right after 9/11 we heard the news that Osama bin Laden lives in a nice villa at a Turkish resort while running 160 charter schools funded by the Turkish taxpayers?"

    Flynn compared Gülen to Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran and tied Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin to an academic journal that he said promoted "radical Muslim thinkers." (A Washington Post fact-check debunked that characterization of the journal.) He did not disclose his firm's lobbying contract in the article.

    Kelley said he didn't know if Flynn's op-ed was related to the lobbying contract. But he suggested reading a recent New Yorker article about Gulen that gave credence to his followers' role in the attempted overthrow.
    As it turns out, President Trump's first National Security Advisor wrote a propaganda piece for the Turkish government while being part of Presidential Candidate Trump's campaign. That propaganda piece reflects the views of Turkey's President Erdoğan. Flynn was working for the President of Turkey while campaigning for the next President of the United States. Can anyone tell me how this did not came up during his security clearance review? Can anyone tell me why he just registered yesterday as a foreign agent for something he did last year? Flynn was a plant!
