Retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn on Tuesday said the Biden Pentagon's plans to recoup nearly $40,000 he received as a speaking fee for a 2015 event in Moscow are an effort to keep him "silent."The Defense Intelligence Agency claimed Flynn did not notify it of the speaking fee he received for a dinner hosted by Russia Today, a Russian state-controlled outlet. Documents reviewed by Just the News show Flynn not only notified the Defense Intelligence Agency about his trip, but he also received approval to spy on Russia's leadership and its military intelligence unit during his visit.

Flynn told "Just the News – Not Noise" that he was "not surprised" by the Pentagon's letter demanding he repay the speaking fee.

He also called on the agency to "[release] the damn classified documents" on his work.

"I'm not surprised at the snarkiness, at the evil that exists inside of our our government right now, particularly the national security state," Flynn noted.

Retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer defended Flynn on Tuesday's "Just the News – Not Noise." 

He said that Flynn was "doing his job" and while at the RT event "he got a lot of really good intel, about a lot of the inner workings of what he observed regarding Putin and the way he behaved."

Flynn said the Pentagon's demands are affecting his retirement account.:snip:
