Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn is the former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency. During an interview with Megyn Kelly Monday night, he was asked about the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
He made it clear that her actions posed a high national security risk and that if he had done something similar, he would expect to be fired.
“As a military officer if I said I was doing something for convenience sake to the soldiers I was leading, and it was solely for my convenience, I should be relieved of duty. I would expect to be fired,” Flynn said.
Megyn Kelly said that Hillary Clinton’s server was physically protected by secret service but she asked the general if he thought Clinton was hacked.
He thought the odds were “very high” – “likely” – that the Chinese and the Russians hacked into her server, her email. There are other countries that are our “allies” who would do it simply because they can. We should know who is watching that server. That belonged to the government.
Lt. Gen. Flynn added that she could have protected the server, but he knows how our adversaries work. He hopes that she can sleep at night with what she’s done.
Hillary announced this evening that she will announce her candidacy for president in two weeks and will do so on social media. Her campaign will show she “fights for every vote and takes nothing for granted.”
