A contributor for very fake news CNN said on Saturday night that former national security adviser Michael Flynn had made a deal with the FBI, but later stated that she had no evidence according to the Washington Free Beacon.
From their report:
Harvard professor and former Obama administration official Juliette Kayyem made the claim late Saturday night.
“The name I mention often on the show, Mike Flynn, the former national security adviser,” she said. “It is starting to look like from my sources and also from open reporting, that Mike Flynn is the one who may have a deal with the FBI, and that’s why we have not heard from him for some time.”
The accusation quickly advanced among left-leaning Twitter users after Kayyem tweeted out video of the segment.
But others were skeptical. Kayyem had alluded to “open reporting” that Flynn was dealing with the FBI, but the only public reporting to that effect came from a highly suspect liberal blog.
In a Facebook post the next day, Kayyem addressed the questions in a Facebook post.
“I did not say on this segment that I have any confirmation that he is actually cooperating or that I have talked to anyone who does,” she wrote. “My informed analysis of this case is based on my years of experience in the national security arena.”
Leave it to CNN to make false claims and report fake news.
