Former national security adviser Michael Flynn was warned by the Pentagon against accepting foreign payments following his retirement in 2014, according to new documents released Thursday by the House Oversight Committee.

The Defense Intelligence Agency’s (DIA) inspector general launched an investigation into Flynn’s actions this month, according to another document released by committee Democrats.

In a 2014 letter to Flynn from the DIA — released in redacted form by the committee — the agency advised him that it is illegal for former military officers to accept payment from a foreign government without prior approval.

The DIA told the committee in an April 7 letter that it did not locate any records that Flynn sought permission to receive money from a foreign source, nor it did it locate any other records related to Flynn’s receipt of money from a foreign source.
