When General Michael Flynn was first named as President Trump’s National Security Advisor many wondered how long he would last. A polarizing figure, as National Security Advisor Flynn spent time on conspiracies, fighting intelligence agencies, and misrepresenting his dealings with Russia during the Presidential Transition. In the end his tenure in the position was less than a month. In this episode of The SCIF Juliette Kayyem explores three main issues surrounding his departure: Flynn's dealings with Russia, the possible connection to Russian Intelligence and the 2016 presidential election, and President Trump's current challenges in the area of national security.
