Federal investigators are looking into whether other military determinations Flynn made during the transition and his tenure as national security adviser were swayed by funds he received from Turkey and Russian Federation, according to the Journal.
Trump reportedly stayed in contact with Flynn and even sent him a message in April urging him to "stay strong", according to Yahoo News. CNN first reported Russia's alleged boasting about Flynn on Friday night, describing it as "a five-alarm fire" in the eyes of law enforcement "from very early on".
Trump's mind-boggling sacking of James Comey, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, earlier this month has got him into hot water and bitter infighting within the party.
A White House adviser told Politico that even after Trump chose to fire Flynn, the president speculated two days later about the possibility of reversing his decision.
Flynn resigned from the top White House post in February amid revelations that he had discussed sanctions with Russia's ambassador in the month before Trump took office and failed to disclose the nature of those communications with top administration officials. And Flynn was there almost from the very beginning - blasting the Republican establishment, leading the "lock her up" chants against Hillary Clinton and, generally speaking, doing whatever was asked of him by Trump. On Wednesday, the Department of Justice named former FBI Director Robert Mueller to be special counsel investigating Russian efforts to influence the USA presidential election. Trump has denied that his aides were involved in the hacking of Democratic groups, but the investigations could cast a shadow over his White House for years.
Flynn blocked military move Turkey opposed

Trump appeared to be taking it badly. 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.
This is just the latest reveal in a series of questionable news regarding Flynn and his Russian connection. Trump is someone who prizes loyalty above all else.
"Why did a "concerned" Obama Administration reapprove Flynn's security clearance and why did the Obama Administration allow Flynn to go to Russian Federation for a paid speaking engagement", Spicer asked. Eventually, we will have those answers and it is looking increasingly likely that when we do, it will be the end of Trump's reign of error. If Flynn wanted immunity, that suggests he had something to trade.
