Russia Accuses U.S. of ‘Paranoia’ Over Ties After Flynn’s Ouster

Flynn Resignation Adds to Trump’s Security Challenges
Russian lawmakers reacted with dismay and anger to U.S. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation, calling it a sign that Donald Trump’s White House is driven by the same “paranoia” toward the Kremlin as previous presidencies.
