Without a doubt, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency and President Donald Trump’s short-lived national security adviser, is the most persecuted American in modern history.
Fired as DIA director by a punk president (Obama) who didn’t like what Flynn had to say about the idiotic ‘nuclear deal’ with Iran, the Army three-star was one of the first people who signed onto Trump’s 2016 campaign targeted by an FBI and Justice Department weaponized by the No. 44 and James Comey.
In an interview Sunday with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo, Flynn – who was pardoned earlier this year by the president he tried to serve – recounted how he was victimized by political partisans who willfully destroy people’s lives simply because they disagree with them.
“My persecution was a political persecution and that’s really clear and the evidence has come out in spades,” Flynn said. “Basically it was a get Flynn to get [President Donald] Trump direction.”
Flynn’s comments came in regards to a clip that Bartiromo played of Comey saying in an MSNBC interview that he sent agents to interview the incoming national security adviser (knowing that it was against protocol because he did not go through the White House counsel’s office).
“Nobody else was there. They interviewed him in a conference room at the White House Situation Room and he lied to them,” Comey falsely claimed.
Bartiromo asked Flynn to respond.
“Yeah, a big ‘ha ha moment’ for Cardinal Comey,” Flynn responded after watching the segment. “What an arrogant smug person that he is, so that’ll be my last comment about him.”
“The culture and the behavior that was developed or allowed or enabled under the previous administration in elements of the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States intelligence community and other parts of our institutions is outrageous. The culture and that behavior has to change. It has to be corrected,” Flynn continued.
He described that culture as a “kind of smugness and arrogance and basically a holier than thou attitude within our government institutions” that is directed inconsistently at the American public.
“America deserves accountability. We deserve accountability [from] these bureaucrats and appointed officials in our government.”
He’s right, we do. But will we ever get it?
