Career of Michael Flynn

During the Obama administration, Michael Flynn headed the Defense Intelligence Agency, before abruptly resigning “amid conflicts within the agency as well as between the general and leaders,” CNN reported in 2014.

The two developed a close bond over their shared view of foreign policy as Flynn began advising Trump in 2016. Flynn was reportedly told by Trump to “stay strong” during the early stages of the Russia investigation. The former security advisor was the first White House official to face charges.

U.S. Army Officer

Flynn joined the U.S. military after graduation. Second Lieutenant in military intelligence in the U.S. Army. In 1983, he was deployed to Grenada as a platoon leader from Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

During his time at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii, Fort Polk in Louisiana, and Fort Huachuca in Arizona, Flynn received a steady string of promotions. Then, in 1994, he was named chief of joint war plans for the American invasion of Haiti.

Private Consultant to Trump Administration

Flynn returned to the private sector and formed Flynn Intel Group, which offered emotional intelligence and security services and a speakers’ bureau. Additionally, he appeared on the Russian state television network RT as a television analyst. By sitting next to Russian President Vladimir Putin at an RT banquet in late 2015.

After largely operating behind the scenes for the last three decades, Flynn surprised his former colleagues with his sudden outspokenness and turned toward more extreme positions. In February 2016, he tweeted, “Fear of Muslims is RATIONAL,” and that summer, he co-authored, The Field of Fight on combat radical Islam. His chant of “lock her up!” at the 2016 Republican National Convention sent the crowd into a frenzy over the transgressions of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
