White House knew sacked adviser was under investigation: reportMike Flynn, Donald Trump's fired national security adviser, told the president-elect's transition team that he was the subject of a federal investigation, but was hired for the post anyway, the New York Times reported late Wednesday. The daily, citing two people familiar with the case, said Flynn told the presidential transition team's chief lawyer Don McGahn about the investigation on January 4 -- weeks before assuming the highly sensitive post. Flynn, who ended up being fired from the position after just 24 days, is at the center of a sprawling federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.
