Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn just found himself at the center of another scandal.

The media is pointing fingers at the Trump administration.

But the truth just came out, and it shows it was the Obama administration that is the one caught up in scandal.

After Michael Flynn resigned as National Security Advisor, the House Oversight Committee began investigating a payment Flynn received for a speech in Russia in December, 2015.

Flynn was paid to deliver a speech in Moscow.

The Speakers Bureau, which booked Flynn, was paid by Russia Today.

Flynn is being investigated by the committee for not being forthcoming about the compensation he received for the speech.

He briefed the Pentagon on his speech before and after he traveled to Moscow.

But the issue is that he did not report the income on his security clearance form he was required to fill out in January, 2016.

The press is trying to pin this on the Trump administration by claiming they did not properly vet Flynn.

But his security clearance was reissued by the Obama administration after his trip to Moscow.

Democrats – with help from the media – are trying to create an air of treason around Flynn’s trip to Moscow.

They believe the payment was kept secret to hide his connections to the Russian government.

But this is most likely fake news.

Flynn’s security clearance was renewed by the Obama administration with the full knowledge of his trip to Moscow and his speech.

The Press Secretary made this point in his daily press briefing.

Breitbart reported:

Spicer said Flynn — a retired three-star Army general who had led the Defense Intelligence Agency — “was a career military officer who maintained a high-level security clearance throughout his career in the military” and that his clearance had been reissued by the Obama administration in 2016 after Flynn’s trip to Russia.

Spicer said that someone with a top security clearance only has to fill out a form known as the SF-86 every five years.

“In between that period, you’re responsible for updating the information that you’ve provided in accordance with the agency that issued that,” he said.

“When General Flynn came into the White House, he had an active security clearance that was issued during the Obama administration with all of the information that’s being discussed that occurred in 2015,” he said.”

If Flynn was trying to commit treason, then he had a funny way of doing it.

He was completely open about his travels and the Obama administration reissued his security clearance.

If anyone missed anything, it would have been the Obama-led Defense Department, which overlooked a 3-star general traveling to Russia to further his secret ties to a foreign government.

It just doesn’t make sense.

If there was a scandal, it was that the Obama administration reissued Flynn’s security clearance based on incomplete information.
