Ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn now has a consulting firm called Resilient Patriot

Ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has a new consulting firm: Resilient Patriot, LLC. In his post-Trump administration venture, Flynn will advise private equity firms on potential deals. Though Resilient Patriot is the name Flynn's son — who posted about the Pizzagate conspiracy theory — used on Twitter, Flynn's son will not be involved.

Flynn's brother told The Associated Press that while there's still a "cloud over" his brother, he is "moving on with his life" since he resigned in February after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. "I think he's not worried about going to jail or anything like that," Flynn's brother said.

Flynn is being looked at as part of the ongoing investigation into whether there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 presidential election. Flynn, who didn't register as a foreign agent until after he resigned, also failed to disclose income from three Russia-linked firms.
