WATCH: Michael Flynn Says He is Absolutely Certain Donald Trump Will Remain President
Michael Flynn was one of Donald Trump’s first hires, tapped to be the National Security Advisor. His tenure there ended in less than a month after Trump fired him for lying to the Vice President. The disgrace continued for Flynn when he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.
But Flynn got a reprieve from his former boss when Donald Trump decided to pardon him. And since then, the former NSA has been paying back the favor by participating in the president’s attempts to overturn the election. During a “stop the steal” event in Washington DC on Saturday, Flynn said he was certain Trump would remain the president.
Speaking to rally-goers, the former Trump staffer said, “The courts do not decide who the next president of the United States will be. I will say, there are paths that are still in play . . . there’s a lot of activity that’s still playing out.”
Flynn then started putting a number of Trump’s chances:
“[Trump] knows—he knows—that the people that he can trust are people that he’s never met. And that’s you. He trusts you because he knows you know what’s going on and you will not allow what’s going on to happen in our country. I will tell you one more time—because I’ve been asked—on a scale of one to ten, who will be the next president of the United States, and I say Donald Trump. Ten. A ten.”
