President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, disclosed a brief advisory role with a firm related to a controversial data analysis company that aided the Trump campaign, according to a filing Flynn submitted to the White House.
The disclosure of Flynn’s link to Cambridge Analytica came in an amended public financial filing in which the retired U.S. Army lieutenant general also discloses income that includes payments from the Trump transition team. The filing was made public by the White House on Friday in response to an Associated Press reporter’s request.
Meanwhile, The New York Times reported Friday night that Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign, has asked the White House for documents related to Flynn.
The newspaper says investigators on Mueller’s team have asked witnesses whether the Turkish government made secret payments to Flynn during the 2016 presidential campaign. The Times cited anonymous sources close to Mueller’s investigation.
