The Trump Administration has been in search of a replacement for national security advisor Michael T. Flynn, who resigned earlier this week.
So far, retired vice admiral Robert S. Haward has reportedly declined the post, as have former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin and Utah attorney general Peter L. Michael. Various involved parties have alleged that Michael was offered between $4,000 and and $5,000 by Democratic party leaders to reject the Administration’s offer.
In a clear attempt to divert the public’s attention, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that “it’s precisely this kind of unsubstantiated accusation that takes us away from the real…”
In email correspondence, Palin noted that she “didn’t see the point.”
Hillary Clinton declined to comment.
