Retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn just talked to Fox News host Jeanine Pirro for his first televised interview since being pardoned by President Trump. He discussed the legal challenges of the 2020 election, as well as his time with former president Barack Obama.
“I must have put the fear of god into Barack Obama and probably still do because of this four-year-long saga that they put me, my family through, President Donald J. Trump and his family and frankly the entire country,” Flynn said.
Flynn had previously worked as the Defense Intelligence Agency head from 2012-2014. Obama later fired him over management issues then advised Trump against hiring Flynn in 2016. Flynn theorized that it was because his role there would expose the Obama administration for spying on the Trump campaign. It would foil their whole plan.
“When he chose me to be the national security advisor they knew that their little plan of spying on Donald Trump would fall apart and many other foreign policy blunders they got our country into, whether it was the Iran deal, issues going on in the Asian-pacific theater, trade, all sorts of issues that were in play that the last administration did to frankly run this country right into the ground,” Flynn said.
Flynn was President Trump’s national security adviser for 25 days until reports released indicated that Flynn had lied to FBI agents about his talks with then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. He pleaded guilty for lying to FBI agents, then later said he did not intentionally lie. The Justice Department dropped Flynn’s case because of the lacking evidence about why the FBI had been interviewing him in the first place. The case was pending before a U.S District Judge when President Trump granted him a full pardon.
The challenges of 2020 election fraud also came up during the interview. Flynn called his former attorney Sidney Powell a “guardian angel of justice” for endlessly fighting democratic leaders to take responsibility regarding the corruption that happened in their states.
“Do not certify these elections and basically go back and do a far more detailed technical mail ballot and signature audit instead of just saying to the American people, ‘Hey, nothing to see here. We are just going to continue to move on to an inauguration.’ I’m sorry, that’s not what the American people want and they won’t stand for it.” Flynn said.
Flynn is free to open the flood gates on Obama now that he’s been pardoned. We’ll be hearing a lot more from him.
