The Pentagon’s internal watchdog has sent its findings on the investigations into Michael Flynn to the Army for a review. This news was first reported by The Washington Post. This may bring financial penalties against the military retirement benefits earned by the three star retired Lieutenant General (LTG).


IG spokeswoman Dwrena Allen stated that the Department of Defense (DOD) OIG began an investigation into an allegation against retired LTG Michael Flynn on April 11, 2017. It stated that he had not obtained the necessary approval from the Army and the Department of State before receiving earnings from a foreign government or a foreign government-controlled entity.


The statement also said that they had suspended their investigation in June 2017, waiting for outcome of the criminal allegations against the LTG.


During the criminal investigations, conducted by Robert Mueller, Michael Flynn pled guilty and cooperated in the investigations. He admitted that he had lied to the FBI about his Russian contacts during the Trump presidential transition which took place in 2016. He also admitted that he had secretly lobbied for Turkey.


In 2019 he changed courses midway saying that he was not guilty. He tried to withdraw his guilty plea in 2020, while promoting conspiracy theories about the investigations by Robert Mueller.


After the former president Trump pardoned Michael Flynn on November 25, 2020, the DOD received permission from the DOJ to continue their investigation.


On January 27, 2021 the DOD closed its investigation against LTG Flynn and forwarded several administrative matters to the “Acting Secretary of the Army for review and appropriate action.”


Michael Flynn, who was briefly Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser, rejoined Trump and with the help of his lawyer, became instrumental in finding ways and means to support the former president’s efforts to try and overturn the 2020 election results.
