The renewed focus on Flynn’s inflammatory rhetoric comes as former KKK head David Duke celebrated news of Flynn’s naming to the top national security position in Trump’s incoming administration by retweeting an anti-Semitic tweet shared by Flynn this past summer.

Great Pick! – Gen. Flynn's retweet shows he knows that the Saudis, ISIS & the Jewish-NeoCons are the real enemies – NOT Assad & NOT Russia! pic.twitter.com/Z9D9CHHXeQ

Flynn's son is cool too. He shows the hypocrisy of race in the USA. Blacks, Mexicans & Jews can have intra dating sites but whites, No WAY! pic.twitter.com/s8C6cp6ass

And it isn’t just Flynn’s rhetoric that has come under intensified scrutiny since his selection as top national security adviser.

New reports this week indicate that Flynn’s lobbying firm took tens of thousands of dollars in lobbying fees from a Turkish client and produced “all-source intelligence support” for other international clients, even as Flynn himself was receiving classified briefings as part of Trump’s national security team — in a possible violation of U.S. law.

Former White House ethics advisor Norm Eisen told Yahoo News’ Michael Isikoff this week that Flynn’s actions are “profoundly troubling and should be disqualifying.”
