Flynn resigned less than a month after taking the adviser job. Flynn reportedly told Rice to hold off, a decision that was "consistent with the wishes of Turkey", a country that was paying Flynn over $500,000 that no one else knew about.
Michael Ledeen, an associate of Flynn, told the website that the retired general was reluctant to join the Trump administration. The president also ignored a warning from President Barack Obama, who shortly after the election cautioned Trump against hiring Flynn.
On November 8-the same day Trump was elected-Flynn published an op-ed in The Hill, championing improved relations between Turkey and America, and describing Gulen as a "shady Islamic Mullah".
Former FBI director James Comey, fired by Trump on May 9, has said Trump tried to get him to drop the Flynn investigation.
Trump fired Flynn after it was revealed that he lied both publicly and privately to Vice President Mike Pence about the nature of his contacts with Russian government officials.

Lieberman May Have Conflict For FBI Post Lieberman seemed to agree with the sentiment, as he was photographed leaving the White House with a big thumbs up. A November 25 news release from Trump's transition team quoted Lieberman praising Trump's selection of K.T.
On its face, it makes zero sense. "Trump's showing the media that they can't control him". And he is quick to blame others for problems within his administration.
With Flynn, it's a different story. Trump loves to surround himself with military men and revels in his role as commander-in-chief. It was not known whether that message was a direct communication or how Flynn received it. That deference likely gave Flynn a far wider berth than the average staffer bringing bad news down on Trump. And Flynn had been one of Trump's most loyal allies. Trump is someone who prizes loyalty above all else. He was a frequent presence on the campaign trail and famously led the Republican National Convention in chants of "Lock her up!" in reference to Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
That loyalty has strained Trump's relationship with Flynn's replacement, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, Politicoreported.
Saddled with steep legal bills, Flynn wanted to reconnect with old friends and talk about potential future business opportunities. Everything else paled in comparison to that. The Timesreport said the Trump team knew about the Turkey investigation weeks before Flynn was let go.
Now, the circumstances surrounding Flynn's tenure appear even more murky. Everyone sees that. Everyone, it seems, except Trump.
