Michael Thomas Flynn (born December 1958) is a former U.S. Army General who served as the head of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency, and was ousted by the Obama administration for his criticism of President Obama's policy toward the Islamic State.[1]

Flynn advised candidate Donald Trump throughout the 2016 U.S. Presidential election on foreign policy matters. Flynn resigned from the position of National Security Advisor early in the Trump administration in a fake news scandal put out by the Washington Post using classified information gathered and leaked illegally by the Obama administration.[2][3][4]

Opposed Obama covert aid to the Islamic State

On August 12, 2012 DIA chief Mike Flynn issued s report circulated widely throughout the intelligence community critical of Western aid to jihadi groups. Copies went to the CIA, FBI, State Department, Homeland Security, CENTCOM, the National Geospacial Agency and other IC members. The report documented that Western powers, that is NATO powers, along with members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates) and Turkey, wanted the creation of an Islamic State ("Salafist principality in Eastern Syria") to oppose the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad and Iranian influence in the region.


Flynn had been Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency for about three weeks. Flynn opposed the Western alliance giving aid for the creation of the Islamic State. Flynn persisted in his criticism of Obama policy, and shortly after Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the re-establishment of the Caliphate in Mosul in June 2014, Flynn was fired.

Christians were brutally slaughtered en masse by "moderate rebels" whom Obama had given aid to. Flynn was fired for opposing Obama administration policy, and later targeted to be silenced and destroyed by Obama intelliegnce community holdovers because he knew too much and wanted to reverse Obama administration policy.

Flynn moved on to be the chief adviser on national security for the Trump campaign. Trump and Flynn were determined to end Obama's support for the Islamic State, which was on a pogram against Christians, Shia, and other "infidels." Obama and John Brennan's support for the Islamic State only exacerbated relations with Russia and led to a Russian military presence in Syria - its first foreign engagement since 1989.

In December 2016, an unofficial social media spokesmen for the Intelligence Community (IC), John Schindler, sent this ominous threat to the President-elect:[5]

The IC dislikes you intensely and they hate Flynn. The spooks have much more on you than they had on Hillary. This is a #YUGE mistake. /7 5:53 AM - 10 Dec 2016

Trip to Moscow

Before Flynn made a trip to Moscow in December 2015 he alerted his former employer, the DIA. He then attended a “defensive” or “protective” briefing before he ever sat alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Russia Today (RT) dinner, or before he talked with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The briefing educated and sensitized Flynn to possible efforts by his Russian host to compromise the former high-ranking defense official and prepared him for conversations in which he could potentially extract intelligence for U.S. agencies such as the DIA. When Flynn returned from Moscow, he spent time briefing intelligence officials on what he learned during the Moscow contacts. Between two and nine intelligence officials attended the various meetings with Flynn about the RT event, and the information was moderately useful, about what one would expect from a public event.[6]

Obama illegal wiretaps and leaking

Flynn's call to Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, the actual audio gathered and any transcript is called “Raw FISA-acquired information,” and its distribution would be highly restricted. At the NSA, not more than 40 or so analysts or senior managers would be read into the classification sub-sub compartment that contains it,[7] called RAGTIME-A,B,C D or P, where each letter stands for one of five different categories of foreign intelligence.

Five days after Flynn's call to Kislyak Attn. Gen. Loretta Lynch signed off on new rules permitting the NSA to disseminate “raw signals intelligence information.”[8] The New York Times reported,

"In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections (minimumizations)."[9]

The substance of Flynn's call was incorporated three days later into a CIA memo authorized by John Brennan intended to impugn and de-legitimize President-elect Donald Trump which was widely circulated under the new NSA rules.[10] The Brennan memo is loaded with Russophobic innuendo.[11]

Spygate: the Lovinger case

Adam Lovinger of the Pentagon's Office of Net Assessment (ONA) was invited by General Flynn to serve as a Senior Director on the White House Security Council, along with Ezra Cohen-Watnick. On the same day, James H. Baker (DOD) filed four separate charges against Lovinger.[12]

Two days before the new administration was to be sworn in Lovinger received a letter from Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter citing “Lovinger’s exceptional performance on collaborative net assessment with the Government of India.” In that same review, James H. Baker (DOD) disagreed, noting, “I do not endorse the characterization set forth in the employee input (that) Adam performed successfully.” Baker ordered an investigation of Lovinger.[13]

On May 1, 2017 Lovinger was notified that his Top-Secret, Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS-SCI) clearance had been suspended. Lovinger was the second Trump official to lose his security clearance. The loss of a security clearance is a significant matter as they are requirements for many senior positions. He was to return to the Pentagon immediately.[14]

In 2016 Lovinger had grown increasingly concerned over the ONA's use of outside contractors, due in part to the “problem of cronyism” and a growing “revolving door policy." Lovinger wrote an October 2016 email to ONA's new director, James H. Baker (DOD) who had recently been appointed by Obama's Defense Secretary. From Lovinger's October 2016 email:
“the moral hazard associated with the Washington Headquarters Services contracting with Stefan Halper.”[15][16]

Halper "was being used by Net Assessment to go out essentially and engage with foreign government [ GCHQ ] officials. As a contractor that’s totally illegal.”[17]
Halper had been awarded $1.06 million in contracts through five payments beginning in 2012.[18]

Lovinger was later exonerated. In that case, a DOD investigation found Lovinger did nothing wrong, yet a trial proceeded the following month anyway as the exculpatory material was withheld. The findings of the DOD investigation in fact were altered by removing the word "not" where it said he "did not" leak information to the media.[19]

Lobbying for a NATO ally

President Obama had been protecting Fethullah Gulen, an Islamic mullah whom the NATO-allied government of Turkey cited as behind a July 2016 coup attempt to overthrow the government of a NATO ally. Obama refused requests for Gulen's extradition. Gulen and associates of his organization are Clinton Foundation donors.

After the 2016 presidential election, The Hill published an op-ed outlining all the facts of the Obama administration and Clinton Foundation's efforts to overthrow the government of a NATO ally and install an Islamic fundamentalist sect in power. The op-ed was written by allies of the Turkish government and signed by Flynn, for which Flynn had been paid. This was considered "unregistered lobbying" by Sally Yates of the Justice Department and James Comey and Andrew McCabe of the FBI.

Peter Strzok of the FBI was dispatched to interview Flynn. At first Flynn claimed he had written the op-ed himself, and later admitted he received help. For this, Special Counsel Robert Mueller charged Flynn with unregistered lobbying and lying to the FBI.

Fake news accounts and illegal leaks from the Obama administration and Mueller office attempted to frame the charges as Flynn engaging in unregistered lobbying for Russia, when in fact Flynn was lobbying for a longtime NATO ally whom the Obama administration and globalists were seeking to undermine. Robert Mueller was finally forced in a judicial hearing to admit that Flynn's actions were not "treasonous" and his unregistered lobbying ended well before he entered the White House.

Flynn's name was unmasked by Susan Rice, then illegally leaked to the Washington Post, likely by FBI Dep. Dir. Andrew McCabe.[20]

FBI evidence tampering

Muellergate prosecutors attempted to hide from the court the fact that Gen. Flynn's FBI interview reports (FD-302s) were tampered with. Flynn was first interviewed by FBI investigators Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka on January 24, 2019 who reported their impressions were that Flynn did not lie. Spygate conspirator Andrew McCabe intervened to alter the field investigators 302 interview reports. McCabe's special counsel Lisa Page texted her lover, Agent Peter Strzok, the go ahead to write up an official report on February 14, 2019. The interview report was filed on February 15, 2019. Typically an interview report is to be completed within 30 days.

After James Comey was fired and Robert Mueller appointed as Special Counsel on May 17, 2019 to hide Obama FBI wrongdoing in the 2016 presidential election, the interview reports were again altered on May 30, 2019 so as to hide the team effort in writing the original reports, the FBI's illegal 702 FISA abuse prior to the election, make the Flynn investigation appear part of the Mueller probe, and hoax federal Judge Emmett Sullivan at Flynn's sentencing hearing.[21]

In August 2019 Flynn's attorney filed a motion to compel the production of the hidden evidence by the Mueller team, the exculpatory Brady material. The motion read, {{quotebox Flynn finally erupted Friday at prosecutors, his legal team accusing top Mueller officials of "malevolent" conduct and withholding evidence relate to Strzok/Page/Ohr/Steele, etc.[22]
[Andrew] Weissmann and Ms. [Zainab] Ahmad while at DOJ in 2016-17 were working with Bruce Ohr (then the fourth highest ranking member of DOJ) to feed information from his wife Nellie at FusionGPS and British citizen Christopher Steele to the FBI through his secret back-channel. This was happening after the FBI terminated Mr. Steele as a paid informant because he was keeping the press informed of his “findings.” FusionGPS, Steele, and Ms. Ohr were all working for the Clinton campaign. In addition, Ms. Ohr worked for the CIA. The entire operation is further compromised by the fact that the second agent who interviewed Mr. Flynn along with former agent Strzok, was Bruce Ohr’s contact with the FBI and conducted numerous debriefings of Mr. Ohr—passing along to the FBI the corrupted and false information from the Ohrs, Steele, and FusionGPS. That agent may also have joined Special Counsel’s team. Weissmann and Ahmad were not in the DOJ chain of command to be informed by Mr. Ohr at all. They had no legitimate reason to be privy to his operation with FusionGPS and Christopher Steele. Remarkably, despite this involvement, Mr. Weissmann and Ms. Ahmad then went directly to the Special Counsel team, along with Strzok and possibly the second agent, thereby calling into question the entire investigation with their illicit involvement with Ohr and Steele. Closing the circle, Ahmad was co-counsel with Van Grack in the prosecution of Mr. Flynn. It is imperative the defense obtain the Bruce Ohr 302s and notes—unredacted—and all evidence of this circuitous and illicit operation."[23]
