An ex-colleague of the now former national security adviser to President Donald Trump, Michael Flynn, says he was incapable of doing the job in the first place.

Mr Flynn resigned yesterday after coming under fire for his potential illegal contacts with the Russian government- and misleading senior officials including the vice president.

Sarah Chayes is a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace- and worked with Mr Flynn in Afghanistan in 2009.

She says she wasn't the least surprised he did not last in the job.
