“When he chose me to be the national security adviser, they knew that their little plan of spying on Donald Trump would fall apart.”
General Michael Flynn, the former national security advisor, took aim at former president Barack Obama while being interviewed by Jeanine Pirro on Fox News.
During the interview, Flynn discussed the fact that Obama repeatedly warned President Donald Trump about him.
General Flynn said Barack Obama, who appointed Flynn twice, is afraid of what he will reveal.
Flynn told Pirro: “I must have put the fear of God into Barack Obama.”

The New York Post has the scoop:
Pardoned former national security adviser Michael Flynn said he must have “put the fear of God” into President Barack Obama because Obama warned President Trump not to hire him in 2016.
Flynn, who was pardoned by Trump last month for lying to the FBI about his contacts with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak after the 2016 election, also said he will one day “lay out” everything he knows about the Russia investigation.
“I must have put the fear of God into Barack Obama and probably still do because of this four-year-long saga that they put me, my family through, President Donald J. Trump and his family and frankly the entire country,” Flynn told Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro on her show Saturday.
The retired Army lieutenant general, in his first interview since being pardoned, suggested Obama advised Trump against hiring him because Flynn would expose the Obama administration’s role in spying on the Trump presidential campaign.
“When he chose me to be the national security adviser, they knew that their little plan of spying on Donald Trump would fall apart and many other foreign policy blunders they got our country into, whether it was the Iran deal, issues going on in the Asian-Pacific theater, trade, all sorts of issues that were in play that the last administration did to frankly run this country right into the ground,” he told Pirro.
Here’s footage from General Flynn’s interview with Jeanine Pirro.

Daily Mail has more on the interview:
When pushed by Pirro over exactly what it was Obama wanted to keep secret, Flynn suggested that the Obama administration had been spying on the Trump campaign during the run-up to the 2016 election and may well have wanted to continue to do so during his time in office.
‘When he chose me to be the national security advisor they knew that their little plan of spying on Donald Trump would fall apart and many other foreign policy blunders they got our country into, whether it was the Iran deal, issues going on in the Asian-pacific theater, trade, all sorts of issues that were in play that the last administration did to frankly run this country right into the ground,’ Flynn said.
‘They knew those were the types of things I was aware of. Let’s face it. Barack Obama appointed me twice. I was Senate confirmed twice during the time I was in the military. So it’s amazing that would be what he would focus on during the transition for the United States of America. It’s outrageous, actually.’
The conversation quickly moved on to Sydney Powell, the conspiracy theory pushing lawyer who formerly represented Donald Trump’s legal challenge to the 2020 election results before being fired by the campaign.
Pirrome asked Flynn flatly, ‘Do you think she is onto something?’
‘Yes, absolutely,’ came Flynn’s direct reply. ‘I call Sidney Powell America’s guardian angel of justice. Sidney Powell’s clients are the people of the United States of America. That’s who she is fighting for right now,’ Flynn said as he lavished praise on her.
Barack Obama will go down in history as one of the most corrupt presidents of all time.
Patriotic Americans cannot wait until the truth is finally revealed on just how corrupt his presidency truly was.
I’m loving how General Flynn is exuding this calmness and confidence. It’s as if he has all the goods and everything is going to be exposed very soon.

General Flynn I think President Trump should run again in 2024 and he should make you in the same job you held. Obama is scared of you! https://t.co/vpCPV8H3iI
