(CNN) —  

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn is in deep trouble.

New revelations – first reported by CNN’s Manu Raju, Jim Sciutto and Tom LoBianco – make clear that the retired general was warned by the Defense Intelligence Agency, way back in 2014, not to accept money from foreign governments as he moved into the private sector. He not only did just that when he spoke to RT-TV, widely considered to be a propaganda arm of Vladimir Putin’s government, but he also allegedly failed to disclose it to the relevant agencies.
