Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser who found himself the center of controversy following probes into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, has launched Resilient Patriot LLC, a consulting firm advising private equity firms, a family member told The Associated Press, as reported by the New York Daily News.
The source, Joe Flynn, the brother of Flynn, told the AP that the retired lieutenant general and former intelligence officer has racked up a considerable amount of debt due to the various probes. He added that the family is planning a fund to help pay Flynn’s various legal bills.
Several of Flynn’s siblings will manage the fund, The NY Daily News further reported.
In addition to being part of an ongoing investigation to see if there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the election, Flynn failed to register as a foreign agent as well as disclose income from three Russia-affiliated firms, noted The Week.
