PROVIDENCE – The family of former national security adviser Michael Flynn has established a legal defense fund for him as he is scrutinized by investigators looking into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election."The various investigations arising out of the 2016 presidential election have placed a tremendous financial burden on our brother Mike and his family," Flynn's brother Joe Flynn and sister Barbara Redgate wrote in a statement announcing the Michael T. Flynn Legal Defense Fund . "The enormous expense of attorneys' fees and other related expenses far exceed their ability to pay."They said Flynn, a retired lieutenant general, devoted 33 years of his life to the U.S. while serving in the Army.
