Retired General Mike Flynn has been relatively outspoken since August 2014 when he left his job as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.[1]

In May 2016, Mike Flynn emerged as one of several leading possibilities to be the vice presidential running mate for Republican nominee Donald Trump.[2][3] Flynn was not chosen as Trump's running mate; the vice presidential pick was ultimately Governor of Indiana Mike Pence.[4]

At the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, Flynn delivered what the New York Times called a "fiery speech", addressing US leadership and American exceptionalism.[5]

On 17 November 2016 it was reported that Mike Flynn would be appointed as National Security Advisor by President-elect Trump.[6]

Hillary's Email Server

In September 2015, Flynn said President Obama should “immediately suspend” Hillary Clinton’s security clearance, because she ran a private, unprotected email server from her New York home.[7]

Admission about ISIS

In 2015, he admitted in an Al Jazeera interview that the rise of ISIS was a "willful decision" of the US government[8][9], which tallies with declassified DIA documents.[10] This would make sense of ISIS were an Operation Gladio/B operation of which he was not aware.
