The mainstream media will stop at nothing to attack former members of Trump’s team.
Even their families aren’t safe from attack.
CNN got hit with a $75 million lawsuit from Trump allies that terrifies them.
Former President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, came under attack for years, facing allegations that he lied to the FBI.
Even when documents revealed that the FBI had been trying to pin a crime on Flynn and the Justice Department dropped the charges.
“It’s on the question of materiality that we feel really that a crime cannot be established here because there was not, in our view, a legitimate investigation going on,” Barr said in a May interview explaining his decision to drop the case against Flynn. “They did not have a basis for a counterintelligence investigation against Flynn at that stage, based on a perfectly legitimate and appropriate call he made as a member of the transition.”
The legal battle, however, continued as U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan tried to keep the case active and appointed an outside attorney to continue to prosecute the case.
Then Donald Trump stepped in and put an end to it with a pardon.
“It is my Great Honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a Full Pardon. Congratulations to @GenFlynn and his wonderful family, I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving!” Trump tweeted on Nov. 25.
Yet the mainstream media is still going after Flynn and his family.
Flynn’s brother and sister-in-law, Jack and Leslie Flynn, sued CNN in U.S. District Court in New York City in a $75 million defamation lawsuit.
They allege that CNN falsely portrays them and their family as supporters of the QAnon conspiracy theory.
“The segment largely shows footage of a meeting of QAnon supporters, including the photogenic icon of the Capitol riot known as the QAnon Shaman, but also briefly shows video tweeted by Michael Flynn of a July 4th gathering of his extended family. In the video, the Flynns recite a pledge to the U.S. constitution and end it with ‘Where we go one, we go all,’ a slogan so frequently used by QAnon adherents it appears as the abbreviation WWG1WGA on movement merchandise. Jack and Leslie Flynn contend, however, that the slogan is unrelated to the movement and that they are ‘not followers or supporters of any extremist or terrorist groups, including QAnon,’ despite being allegedly inaccurately portrayed as such.” the Daily Beast reported.
Jack and Leslie Flynn argue that the words were unrelated to the movement and that they are “not followers or supporters of any extremist or terrorist groups, including QAnon,” despite being allegedly inaccurately portrayed as such.
