Flynn’s Security Clearance Suspended ‘Pending Review’


Washington: Former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s security clearance has been suspended “pending review,” a Defense Intelligence Agency spokesman reportedly told media on Wednesday.

The move was described as a normal administrative step when questions arise regarding an individual’s compliance with standards.

Flynn was fired by President Donald Trump amid reports he misled Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russians before Trump’s inauguration.

The spokesperson for the DIA said Flynn’s access could be reinstated if the review finds no wrongdoing.
