Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn did not disclose payments for a 2015 speech in Moscow in his security clearance application for 2016, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee told reporters Tuesday.
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) sent a request last month to the White House and federal agencies seeking the security clearance applications. Cummings said the White House declined in a letter to provide requested information about Flynn to the Oversight panel.
Flynn resigned as national security adviser after it became clear he had misled his colleagues about the nature of his phone calls with Russia’s ambassador.
