Spitting in the faces of America’s veterans, Chase Bank has stated it that will close the account and credit cards of retired general and American hero Michael Flynn. The Bank told Flynn in a letter that this was due to the “reputational risk” of associating with him.
Flynn’s career included an incident in which he jumped off of a forty-foot cliff to successfully save two stranded fellow soldiers and ended with his service as the National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump (it appears that the association with Trump formed the basis of the bank’s decision).
Since bank accounts and credit cards are legally private matters between the holder and the bank, Chase Bank’s security must be called into question if the institution fears outsiders could have learned of Flynn’s relationship with the company. Current Chase customers should be concerned if the bank is unable to keep accounts secure and confidential, and may wish to switch to a bank or credit union where their money and personal information will not be at risk.
