Michael Flynn's lobbying firm received $530,000 from Turkish client

 In its filings with the Justice Department, Flynn's firm said the op-ed was not published at the request of Inovo or the Turkish government but said Inovo did review a draft before Flynn submitted it.

Kelner said Flynn shut down the firm in mid-November.

On Twitter, Inovo founder Ekim Alptekin pushed back on the notion that Flynn's work benefited Turkish authorities, saying he never hired a lobbyist on behalf of the Turkish government and said neither he nor anyone in the country's government knew in advance about Flynn's op-ed.
