The Washington Post reports:
Michael Flynn, the retired Army general and onetime adviser to President Donald Trump, was cited by the Defense Department inspector general for failing to disclose lucrative speaking engagements and other business arrangements with foreign entities, prompting the U.S. government to pursue tens of thousands of dollars in penalties against him, according to documents.
Investigators determined that Flynn received nearly $450,000 from Turkish and Russian interests in 2015, including for an appearance in Moscow alongside President Vladimir Putin, but found no records that he had sought government approval beforehand. Their findings are detailed in a January 2021 memo to the Army released through the Freedom of Information Act on Thursday.
We all want more money, I suppose, but it is always amazing to me when people in positions of leadership sell out their integrity. Maybe hanging out with rich people creates envy. No amount of money is worth the cost. https://t.co/sSxxDWG8yy

The Pentagon continues to subsidize disgraced former @USArmy Lieutenant General Michael Flynn’s insurrectionist movement via a lifetime military pension.
It’s not just about January 6th — he’s still building the insurgency against the US Constitution.
