With his presidential pardon from Donald Trump in hand, disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is back on television, bragging and wanting us to believe his bullshit, even though he’s a self-confessed liar who admitted in open court that he broke the law.
Flynn appeared on the Fox News show “Justice With Judge Jeanine” Saturday evening, spewing more nonsense and suggesting that one day soon he’s going to tell his side of the Russia investigation that got him into legal trouble.
The former U.S. Army lieutenant general began by claiming that former President Barack Obama is afraid of him:
According to Flynn, the real reason Obama fired him (as did Trump) had nothing to do with anything he did wrong. Obama, he maintained, was afraid he’d blow the whistle on the the Russia probe:
“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.”
But what about Flynn’s acceptance of money from Russia and Turkey, both of which he neglected to disclose? And what about the fact that he lied directly to Vice President Mike Pence and was given the boot by Trump for that very act? As you’d expect, Flynn didn’t touch on those issues.
Flynn concluded that since Obama appointed him twice, that proves his word is more reliable than that of a former president who wasn’t cold-busted committing perjury:
What’s outrageous is that Michael Flynn expects anyone in the world to believe him when he’s repeatedly proven that the only thing he excels at is lying. No wonder Trump is so fond of Flynn: Neither one one of them has an ounce of honesty or truth in them.
