Think President Trumps scandal in Ukraine is bad? Wait until you see what hes been up to in Turkey. Much like Ukraine, Trumps Turkish dealings involve his associates mixing their private business with the affairs of state and allegations that the president sought to meddle in criminal-justice proceedings. So who in Trumps inner circle has been lobbying for Turkey and what has the president done for them?
Welcome to Rabbit Hole.
Time is a flat circle: Way back in 2016, Mike Flynn wasnt yet formally Trumps national security adviser, nor had he been charged for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian officials. He was, however, just finishing up lobbying for the Turkish government and pressing the U.S. to deport a dissident cleric whom Turkey blamed for a 2016 coup attempt.
