Army Now Targets Gen. Flynn Over Emoluments Clause

The witch hunt is still alive…

The Department of Defense has just announced that they have finished a long investigation into Gen. Flynn and have now sent their findings to the U.S. Army.

The investigation states that Gen. Flynn violated the Emoluments Clause in the Constituition.

The Emolument Clause “generally prohibits federal officeholders from receiving any gift, payment, or other thing of value from a foreign state or its rulers, officers, or representatives.”.

According to the Department of Defense  Flynn’s acceptance of money from a Russian media company called RT and from a Neverlands company that lobbies on behalf of Turkish interests violates the Emolument Clause in the Constitution.

There’s a problem though, Flynn was retired when he worked with foreign governments!

Gen Flynn didn’t do anything illegal and the Department of Defense is just trying to keep the witch hunt alive by sending their phony investigation to the U.S. Army.

Instead of throwing the investigation out the window, the Army who’s now in control of the investigation says the case is “under review”.

Flynn spoke out against the Deep State and Election fraud and now they are going after him because he didn’t sit quiet like they wanted him to.

The Washington Post shared these details on the investigation:

The Defense Department’s internal watchdog has concluded a long-delayed investigation into Michael Flynn, defense officials said Friday, sending its findings to the Army in a case that could bring tens of thousands of dollars in financial penalties for President Donald Trump’s first national security adviser.

The investigation focuses on Flynn’s acceptance of money from Russian and Turkish interests before joining the Trump administration, a potential violation of the Constitution’s emoluments clause. With few exceptions, U.S. officials, including retired service members like Flynn, are prohibited from accepting money or gifts from foreign governments. Flynn retired from the Army as a three-star general in 2014.

The inspector general’s investigation, opened in April 2017, was put on hold for more than three years amid a broader scandal that included a criminal investigation of Flynn by the Justice Department — part of what would become the investigation of Trump’s first presidential campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election led by former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III.

 

According to MSN the Department of Defense released this statement regarding the investigation:

“On January 27, 2021, we closed our investigation against LTG Flynn and forwarded several administrative matters to the Acting Secretary of the Army for review and appropriate action,” Allen’s statement said. LTG stands for lieutenant general, Flynn’s rank at retirement.

You would think the Army would just toss the witch hunt out the window and save taxpayers dollars but it looks like they’re out to get America’s favorite patriot Gen Flynn.
