Nancy Pelosi, Elijah Cummings, and the New York Times use fake Michael Flynn Tweet to attack him

February 14, 2017

 Democrats are now smelling blood with the news that Michael Flynn resigned as National Security Adviser to Donald Trump after it was reported he had a conversation with the Russian ambassador before he was installed into the office he held until late last night.

  Elijah Cummings glommed onto a tweet by Michael Flynn in which he claimed he was nothing but a scapegoat, here is what he had to say:

“Madame Leader, just this morning, Flynn tweeted that he is a ‘scapegoat.’ I believe we need to hold a public hearing with Flynn to get to the bottom of this,” Cummings said at a press conference. “We need to get his security clearance documents to find out if he was honest on those forms, and we need to know how much he got paid to have dinner with Vladimir Putin.”

  Nancy Pelosi eagerly took the bait and after a strange statement where she decided she had to explain to the American people what a “scapegoat” was she said the following:

“The inference to be drawn from (Flynn’s) statement is that other people have blame that should be shared in all of this. The good news is that Gen. Flynn is gone, because he was totally inappropriate — wrong for the job,” Pelosi said.

  The only problem with Michael Flynn’s initial tweet is that he did not tweet anything in the first place: the Twitter account was fake and clearly marked as parody:

The problem for Cummings and Pelosi? The @GenMikeFlynn is a clearly marked parody account.

  But even the New York Times, which should have been on guard against fake news after publishing the fake Russian dossier, was ensnared and reported this as fact.

  The fact is that Nancy Pelosi, Elijah Cummings, and the New York Times succumbed to blood lust and in their zeal to take down Michael Flynn they did not even bother to check their source and now they all look foolish–not that they did not before…

    ?? Could the whole Flynn matter, be a Frame-Up?

    If dem*s smell blood it might be their own they’re going after. Might take awhile for the truth to surface – you know how they like to bury their secrets deeply, not to be exposed!

      Hopefully their desire to take down Trump will end up taking them down because they are no longer rational.

      They are just throwing anything out they can and the media is right along with them…vetting??? It does not seem to matter if it is factual or not, as long as it is negative, it works for them. President Trump had better start cleaning out ALL of departments and quickly. There are so many moles, I am not sure where he needs to start, but anyone hired during the Obama 8 years, for me, would be an immediate OUT…but that might just be me. Schumer, I hate to say it, might be a bigger pain in the butt than Reid was, if that is possible. I am so sick of these people and they are not going to stop until the President lays the hammer down. He needs to call in McCain, Rubio, Graham and a choice few others and lay the law down with them, they are either with him or against him…..

        I think you are right about Trump needing to purge all Obama appointees as soon as possible, it is clear they are actively working to discredit him and have been since the day after the election. Of course the media is more than willing to go along. I am already tiring of Schumer and it hasn’t even been a month yet!
