WASHINGTON — One of the Trump administration’s first decisions about the fight against the Islamic State was made by Michael Flynn weeks before he was fired — and it conformed to the wishes of Turkey, whose interests, unbeknownst to anyone in Washington, he’d been paid more than $500,000 to represent.

Flynn told the president-elect’s transition team in early January that he was the subject of a federal investigation, but was hired anyway for the highly sensitive position of national security adviser, The New York Times reported yesterday.
“Scores of people saying, ‘Mr. President, do not appoint this man,'” Scarborough said. “‘It’s the most important position, he’s wildly unstable, it would be a terrible mistake.’ He and Jared Kushner heard that repeatedly every day and didn’t give a damn.”
