Sometime in late January, Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pushes for the Pentagon to work closely with Russia’s military, a move that would cut right through federal law.
The Pentagon and Russia have a narrow communications channel used to keep American and Russian pilots safe from each other. Flynn wants to expand the channel to coordinate the overseas military operations of both countries, under the guise of fighting to combat the Islamic state.
Flynn claims the initiative will help the two countries take down ISIS in Syria, but Russia’s counterterrorism efforts against ISIS are mostly a facade. The Pentagon knows this.
Flynn and Jared Kushner tried setting up a private communications backchannel between the two countries less than a month after the 2016 election.
Donald Trump was not the first criminal elected to public office, and he won’t be the last. It’s up to US to hold them accountable.
