Free speech for retired senior officers?

On June 9, 2020, Global Military Justice Reform ran this post referring to a National Review Online essay by Victor Hanson Davis. The essay has sparked this riposte from Jim Swift at The Bulwark. He asks:
When retired Army general Michael Flynn—before he twice pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI—was one of President [Donald J.] Trump’s most ardent defenders, where was Victor Davis Hanson?

When Gen. Flynn spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, and led a chant of “LOCK HER UP!”—where was Victor Davis Hanson?

What did he have to say about this retired general getting deeply, crassly, and ultimately ignominiously involved in politics? Where was Hanson’s policing of the borders of politics and the military then?
