Lt. Gen. Flynn Retweets Anti-Semitic Message

HeadlineJul 25, 2016

Meanwhile, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn—who was on Donald Trump’s vice-presidential short list and who spoke at the convention—has sparked controversy by re-tweeting an anti-Semitic message. On Sunday, he shared a tweet reading, “Cnn implicated. 'The USSR is to blame!' … Not anymore, Jews. Not anymore.” The tweet was a reference to Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager claiming on CNN that Russia was behind the DNC email hack. Flynn deleted the tweet and apologized a few hours later.
