Former Obama General Michael T. Flynn is a retired United States Army lieutenant general who served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, commander of the Joint Functional Component Command for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, and chair of the Military Intelligence Board from July 24, 2012, to August 2, 2014. Prior to this he served as assistant director of national intelligence.
He knows intelligence.
The General blasted Hillary Clinton in an interview with Jake Tapper Friday. Hillary should drop out of the presidential race, he said, adding he’d be in jail if he did what she did.
“If it were me, I would have been out the door and probably in jail,” Flynn told Tapper.
Tapper noted that Hillary and her supporters say it is an issue of over classification which Flynn soundly rejected.
Flynn added, “Overclassification or not, if it’s classified, it’s classified. And she knows better. She knew better in the roles that she has had both as a senator, both as a — even back when she’s married to the president of the United States and she’s going to have privileged information in that regard, not only as the secretary of state which is part of the national security Council, so she should know better. This overclassification excuse is not an excuse. If it’s classified, it’s classified.”
