Intelligence officials suspended Michael Flynn's security clearance on Wednesday just over one day after he resigned as White House national security adviser.

Obama dismissed Flynn as head of the DIA in 2014. His clearance could be reinstated in the future, pending the results of the review.

"I've never seen anything like this before", retired Col. James Waurishuk told TheDCNF's Richard Pollock, referring to Flynn's ouster from the Trump administration.

Flynn and the Russian appear to have discussed US sanctions on Russia late past year, raising questions about whether he was freelancing on foreign policy while President Barack Obama was still in office and whether he misled Trump administration officials about the calls.

Flynn had originally said that he did not discuss USA sanctions on Russian Federation during the call with Kislyak, although his spokesperson later said that Flynn could not recall whether sanctions had come up during the call.
