ORIGINAL STORY: Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn was warned by the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014 not to take money from foreign governments as he prepared to retire, documents published by the House Oversight Committee revealed. 

The inspector general of the Department of Defense opened an investigation into Flynn earlier this month, CNN reported.  Flynn's failure to disclose payments from Russia ultimately led to his resignation. Earlier this week, top lawmakers said there was "no data" Flynn had complied with relevant laws.
