National Security Adviser Michael Flynn reportedly withdrew Monday from giving a speech at a defense-focused event originally scheduled for the same night.

Flynn was listed as an “invited” speaker on Monday night at the National Defense Industrial Association’s annual special operations/low intensity conflict symposium, per the NDIA’s final agenda.

“Flynn had never confirmed his attendance. He was always listed as invited,” NDIA public relations and communications director Ashley Saunders wrote in an email to TPM.

The White House withdrew Flynn due to scheduling conflicts, according to Defense One tech editor Patrick Tucker, who first reported the cancellation.
