As a presidential candidate, Trump begins receiving intelligence briefings that contain classified information. He’s bringing with him one of his “advisors,” Ret. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn who has direct ties with Russia, including Putin. Before Flynn joined Trump campaign, he worked for Putin’s RT television network. Flynn is in fact so close to Putin that he was seated directly next to him in one of RT’s dinner.
When Trump was asked why he’s bringing Flynn with him to the briefings, Trump responded that he does not “trust” U.S. intelligence. I guess he favors Russian intelligence.
