BREAKING Michael Flynn’s Business Partner Charged with Illegally Lobbying for Turkey

Wow, it looks like Michael Flynn ratted out everyone.

A business partner of Michael Flynn is being charged with acting as an agent of a foreign government and conspiracy for attempting to get Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen extradited from the United States. reports The Washington Post.

According to WaPo, Bijan Kian made his first appearance in Alexandria federal court Monday morning.

Turkish businessman Ekim Alptekin, who paid Kian and Flynn, is charged in the indictment but remains abroad.

The big question is, of course, what did Flynn give up about President Trump and his family?

When Trump was just running for president, I warned about Flynn. In the summer of 2016, I was warning mostly about Flynn's over the top war hawk positions but I knew he was a full out nut and dangerous. I wrote:
I tell you Flynn is insane, That he is so close to Trump is very disturbing.
In November, it was revealed that former Secretary of State Colin Powell held the same view I did about Flynn:
In a leaked email, Colin Powell called Flynn a "fucking lunatic."
Basically, Flynn has always been too much of an idiot to stay out of trouble and too much of a wimp to hang tough.  You can be sure he rolled on the president and made up lies if he had to.

Out of an overabundance of bad personnel picks, I would argue that from a personal Trump perspective, Flynn is the worst the president made--even worse than Jeff Sessions.
