Flynn Jr Works for the Transition

Views

I mentioned last night that incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s son has been aggressively spreading the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory that led to the shooting in D.C. yesterday. As I mentioned, Flynn Jr isn’t some ne’er-do-well son who has no meaningful connection to his father. He was his top aide and chief of staff at the consulting firm the general ran after he left the military. I was curious if there was more because on Flynn Jr.’s twitter bio he lists the URL of the Trump presidential transition. Is he now on the government payroll? You can’t necessarily draw that inference since obviously you can put anything you want on your twitter bio. But now CNN has confirmed that Flynn Jr. does have an official government transition email address. So this guy who is actively involved in spreading this dangerous nonsense is literally on the government payroll and looks likely to work in the government under President Trump.
