President-elect Donald Trump has reportedly offered Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn the position of national security adviser.
Officials on Trump's transition team told multiple news outlets about the offer Thursday night but didn't say if Flynn had accepted.
He also ran the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012 to 2014 before he was pressured to resign.
But Flynn was criticized last year for visiting Moscow and celebrating a government-controlled media outlet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He's also spurred controversy earlier this year when he suggested the U.S. was in a "world war" with "radical Islam."
Reports of Flynn's appointment is just one of many as Trump fills out his cabinet. Outlets said on Friday the president-elect has chosen U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general and U.S. Rep. Mike Pompeo as CIA director.
