Embattled former Trump White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is joining a new consulting firm, Stonington Global, which offers lobbying, public affairs and investment advisory services.
The hire comes as Flynn is looking at potential jail time stemming from the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Last December, the former lieutenant general pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. He is currently cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Day - Announcement - Flynn - Hearing - Lawyers
On the same day of the announcement, Flynn faced another sentencing hearing where his lawyers pushed to speed up the process, saying Flynn is “ready to get this chapter of his life behind him.”
In a statement about the move, Flynn said he is “excited to begin this new phase of my career.”

Stonington Global founder Nick Muzin, who has been a consultant for the Qatari government and the Democratic Party of Albania, said in a statement that Flynn would use his “military and national security experience” to help clients.
“The General’s uniquely American story and his commitment to national security, freedom and counter-terrorism are an inspiration to millions of Americans, and we are excited to work with him to promote these values around the world,” Muzin wrote in the release.
