Because Flynn held a Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance, he also would have been required to report to the DIA any repeated contacts or payments from foreign nationals or foreign-owned firms as well as foreign travel, which Cummings also noted today in a request for more documents from the Trump administration. Other documents released show Flynn was paid $11,250 by a Russian airline.

Flynn, who was sacked in August 2014 as chief of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, sat next to Russian President Vladimir Putin during the climax of the televised RT gala.

From there, Flynn was paid $11,250 to speak to USA subsidiaries of both Volga-Dnieper, a cargo airline that had been suspended as a vendor to the United Nations following a corruption scandal, and a Russian cybersecurity agency looking to expand business with the U.S. government. It was paid more than $11,000 to arrange the December dinner event. Kasperky did not respond to questions about why Gen. Flynn was paid and Congressman McCaul was not.

Trump forced Flynn's resignation last month over misleading statements Flynn made to Vice President Pence about his conversations with Russia's ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.

Flynn also gave other White House officials a false version of his contacts with the Russian envoy.
