Michael Flynn met with GOP operative who claimed to have Hillary emails

A Republican operative was working to obtain Hillary Clinton's emails for years, and reportedly consulted with former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to do it.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that a veteran Republican activist, Peter Smith, met with Flynn back in 2015 as a part of his long-term effort to get his hands on Clinton's emails. Smith apparently thought that Flynn's connections would help him get in touch with hackers who had access to the emails.

The two initiated a "business relationship" in November 2015, an email from Smith's former associate revealed. Before Flynn joined President Trump's campaign as a top adviser, and long before he resigned and pleaded guilty on charges of lying to the FBI, he was having conversations with a Russian ambassador, which Smith thought would be helpful in his email mission.
