ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz said on Tuesday that it appeared that President Donald Trump's now former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn did not seek permission to receive foreign payments. "General Flynn had a duty and an obligation to seek and obtain permission to receive money from foreign governments prior to any engagement with them. It does not appear to us that that was ever sought nor did he ever get that permission," Chaffetz said. Chaffetz, who is the chairman of the House Oversight Committee and spoke along side Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings, was referring to Flynn failing to disclose payments for a 2015 speech in Moscow on a security clearance application.
