Michael Flynn’s former top deputy at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) told Yahoo News on Thursday he would have ordered an immediate investigation of his one-time boss had he been informed that the ex-DIA chief had accepted more than $45,000 from an arm of the Russian government for a talk in Moscow in December 2015. “I would have considered this an intelligence issue — taking money from an existential adversary of the United States,” said Douglas Wise, who served as deputy director of the DIA from the summer of 2014 until last year. Flynn’s failure to disclose his payments from RT, the Russian government-funded TV network that U.S. officials say serves as a propaganda arm for President Vladimir Putin’s administration, erupted as an issue earlier in the day Thursday when it was revealed that the Department of Defense’s top watchdog is investigating whether Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, violated federal ethics rules by failing to report and receive prior approval to accept the RT fees.

By Nidal al-Mughrabi GAZA (Reuters) - With the prospect looming of a Middle East peace initiative by a new U.S. administration more sympathetic to Israel, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has decided to turn the screw on the Hamas group that has kept Gaza out of his control for a decade. Abbas's Western-backed Palestinian Authority (PA) on Thursday told Israel it would no longer pay for the electricity Israel supplies to Gaza, a move that could lead to a complete power shutdown in the territory, whose 2 million people already endure blackouts for much of the day. Israel does not engage directly with Hamas, regarding the Islamist group as a terrorist organization.

The argument that even an "immaterial" error on official paperwork can justify deportation, put forward by the Trump administration in a recent Supreme Court case, would be sufficient to deport the President's wife, Melania. The First Lady of the United States reportedly failed to disclose earnings from nearly two months of illegal work in the USA on a visitor's visa, and subsequently failed to mention the offence on immigration documents. A Serbian woman was recently deported for failing to disclose her husband's history in the military, thus setting a technical precedent for deporting Ms Trump, as Slate reports.
