Michael Flynn's security clearance suspended pending review

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.

"I think he's been treated very, very unfairly by the media - as I call it, the fake media, in many cases". "And I think it's really a sad thing he was treated so badly". Such leaks are atypical, although they continue to happen as the Trump administration gets underway.

Flynn had maintained to the White House that sanctions were not discussed.

Meanwhile, U.S. Sen. Jack Reed took the Flynn resignation as a moment to discuss his objections to the restructuring of the National Security Council.

With the resignation of General Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor, liberal Democrats in congress are on the national media loudly demanding a congressional investigation and criticizing Republicans.
