Retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn sat down with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro for his first televised interview since being pardoned by President Trump to talk about the legal challenges of the 2020 election, as well as his time with former president Barack Obama.
Flynn had previously worked as the Defense Intelligence Agency head from 2012-2014 until Obama fired him over management issues. Obama had advised Trump against hiring Flynn in 2016, which Pirro pushed Flynn to talk about in the interview. He theorized that it was because his role there would eventually expose Obama’s administration for spying on the Trump campaign and 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 served as President Trump’s national security adviser for 25 days until reports were released indicating 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 withdrew it by saying he did not intentionally lie.
The Justice Department eventually dropped Flynn’s case because of the lacking evidence in 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.
“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 also talked about the challenges of 2020 election fraud. He called his former attorney Sidney Powell a “guardian angel of justice” for making the people of the United States her clients. She has spent weeks fighting democratic leaders to start taking responsibility for the corruption happening 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.
By being pardoned, Flynn is free to open the flood gates on Obama now. We can expect to be hearing a lot more from him soon.
