Santo Domingo.- For the second time in just one week, the world of United States high-level politics focuses its attention on the Dominican Republic, more precisely its beaches.
Titled "Flynn’s swift downfall: From a phone call in the Dominican Republic to a forced resignation at the White House," The Washington Post reports that Flynn was at a beachside resort in the Dominican Republic, "a stretch of sand and sun that he and his wife had visited for years, when he took a few moments out of their post-election vacation for a call with the Russian ambassador to the United States."
It reports that Flynn As a veteran intelligence officer, "must have known that a call with a Russian official in Washington would be intercepted by the U.S. government, pored over by FBI analysts and possibly even shared with the White House."
"But six weeks later, Flynn was forced out of his job as national security adviser to President Trump over what was said in that conversation and Flynn’s inability to be truthful about it with then-Vice President-elect Mike Pence and other officials now in senior positions at the White House," the outlet said.
The news comes just days after Eric Trump, son of US president Donald Trump, visited the Dominican Republic on February 8 reportedly to revive their stake in the beachfront development of Cap Cana, in the Caribbean country's east region.
