Facing "enormous" legal bills, Michael Flynn establishes legal defense fund

Relatives of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, one of the key subjects of multiple investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, made a rare public statement Monday to call attention to the “tremendous financial burden” the probes are placing on former advisers to President Donald Trump.

“The enormous expense of attorneys’ fees and other related expenses far exceed their ability to pay,” said Joe Flynn and Barbara Redgate, the retired general’s brother and sister.
