Donald Trump's Russia scandal may have moved closer to impeachment amid reports that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn may have flipped on the president and is now working with the FBI on the investigation against Trump.
There have been allegations dating back nearly a year that Donald Trump worked closely with Russian intelligence officials during the 2016 campaign to release damaging emails stolen from Hillary Clinton's campaign chief and from the Democratic National Committee. A dossier compiled by a former British MI6 agent claimed that Russian officials have been working for years to cultivate Trump as a presidential candidate, compiling damaging information to use as blackmail and dangling lucrative financial deals before him.
Though most of those allegations remain unproven, the FBI confirmed this week that there is an active investigation into whether Trump had contact with Russia during the election. The FBI may now have a star witness against Trump, with a report that Flynn has flipped on Trump and is working with investigators.
Flynn, who was fired after it emerged that he lied about contacting the Russian ambassador on the same day President Barack Obama announced new sanctions against Russia, could be a damaging witness against Donald Trump and move the investigation closer to indictment or impeachment, reports claimed.
