    Michael Flynn, former national security adviser, may have broken the law by not disclosing payments he received from Russia when applying for government security clearance.

    The house oversight committee is investigating payments made to Flynn before he took office in January.

    Flynn's links to Russia are also being looked at as part of wider allegations that Moscow tried to help US President Donald Trump win the election.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports from Washington DC.
