Trump Bows Down To Putin, Selects Russia Consultant As National Security Adviser

After colluding with Russia to win the presidential election, Donald Trump seems to be willing to do anything to please Vladimir Putin and has selected Mike Flynn –who was forced out as DIA Chief and has strong ties to the Kremlin– as National Security Advisor.

Flynn, who advised the Trump’s presidential campaign, has defended the President-elect’s proposal to ban all Muslims from immigrating to the U.S. and said he is open to killing the families of accused terrorists and bringing back waterboarding as a torture method and to which constitutes a war crime under the Geneva Conventions.

Flynn served as the chief of the Defense Intelligence Agency but was forced out due to his controversial views on Islam and vocal opposition to the Obama administration’s policies to fight Islamic State. He claimed that “political correctness” was at fault in the U.S. efforts against terrorism. He also called Islam a “cancer” and argued that fearing Muslims is “rational.”

Over the summer, Flynn began receiving classified briefings as an adviser to Trump — while simultaneously working as a private consultant for Russian clients and serving as an analyst for Russia’s state-owned TV network RT and being paid to speak at the network’s events.

Trump has praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for being “a stronger leader” than President Barack Obama. Flynn, like Trump, believes that Russia and the U.S. should be closer collaborators in the fight against Islamic State, of which many foreign policy experts and Republican lawmakers are wary.
