Mike Flynn’s Son Just Accidentally Threw Pence And Trump Under The Bus In Russia Probe

Michael Flynn Jr., the son of Donald Trump’s former national security adviser who resigned in disgrace, sent out a couple of tweets that contradict what the current occupant of the White House has alleged, and what Vice-President Mike Pence has said. Last December, Trump tweeted that he fired Flynn for lying to Pence and the FBI.

“I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI,” Trump tweeted at the time. “He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!”

Well, maybe there is something to hide because Flynn Jr. tweeted that his father did not lie to Pence.

“American Patriot @GenFlynn did not lie to Pence (or anyone else in the admin) about his perfectly legal and appropriate conversations w Russian AMB Kislyak in Dec 2016,” the Pizzagate conspiracy theorist tweeted. “Why would a highly decorated military intel officer lie about something legal? Been a MSM lie from day 1”

Sure, blame the MSM but that doesn’t explain Trump’s reason for firing Flynn or Pence’s version of events. “I was disappointed to learn that … the facts that had been conveyed to me by Gen. Flynn were inaccurate,” Pence said after Flynn was fired.

Flynn’s son is now saying that his father never lied to Pence about his communications with Kisylak but that would mean that the vice-president lied and that would mean that Trump lied, too. Mike Flynn pleaded guilty in early December to lying to the FBI. It’s almost as if no one in Trump’s orbit is capable of telling the truth.
