President Donald Trump’s propaganda minister Kayleigh McEnany took to Twitter on Wednesday to brag about Michael Flynn getting away with his crimes after a DC Circuit judge appointed by Trump ordered the case against him be dropped.
Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr engineered Flynn’s get out of jail free card earlier this year when Barr directed federal prosecutors to drop the case despite the fact that Flynn lied to the FBI and pleaded guilty to the crime in court.
The judge in the case smelled a rat and refused to let Flynn off the hook, only for Trump’s minion on the DC Circuit to rule against him.
As news of the ruling spread, McEnany bragged.
Today’s decision by an appeals court to dismiss the case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is a VICTORY for justice and truth.
All Americans are entitled to equal justice under the law and due process. No American should ever be unjustly targeted by their government.

Again, Flynn lied and admitted it. He pleaded guilty. There’s no conspiracy here.
And Twitter users brutally reminded her of that fact and more.
He admitted to lying to the FBI, Kayleigh.

Obviously Kayleigh thinks there’s nothing wrong with lying. She may, in fact, find it commendable.

Flynn pleaded guilty twice. This decision will probably be heard en banc. We’ll see what happens then.

He plead guilty for cripes sakes. Twice. The DOJ is as corrupt as Trump

Michael Flynn lied under oath and pled guilty. Anyone else would be in jail, but he gets preferential treatment from Donald Trump and William Barr.?

Why did Donald Trump fire him?
He lied to the FBI, and either he lied to the rest of the Trump Administration, or the rest of the Trump Administration is lying about that.
Corruption has never been so corrupt.

He admittedly lied to the FBI…

Flynn was duly prosecuted and cut a plea deal with the DOJ. That was in lieu of facing even more charges that Flynn admitted to doing as part of his plea deal.
Trump and Barr have shredded the rule of law to protect Trump’s criminal cronies. Trump fired Flynn for lying.

Michael Flynn should be sitting in prison right now. Instead, he’s free to help Trump steal another election in an effort to sell out America to the Russians.
