Michael Flynn Jr. issues another dark prophecy: ‘Comey is going down’

Published

on

Earlier this week, Michael Flynn Jr.—son of US Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn—mysteriously warned “You’re all going down” on Twitter.

On Wednesday, Flynn Jr. issued a more specific prophecy of doom, this time directed at former-FBI director James Comey.

“Comey is going down, and he doesn’t even know it yet. Sad….  [sic]” he posted to Twitter.

The warning came in response to Comey trying to explain that informants are an integral part of the FBI’s work.

“Facts matter. The FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country,” he wrote. “Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country. How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?”

It’s worth noting that the FBI does have a long history of abusing its power in the agency’s use of informants, from COINTELPRO to more recent investigations into terror cases, where informants appear to have instigated criminal conspiracies unlikely to have come to fruition on their own.

So far, there doesn’t appear to be credible evidence that the FBI abused its power in investigating the Trump campaign.

Despite concerns about spreading the coronavirus and starting wildfires, Trump insisted on having a fireworks-heavy celebration at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, which was clearly a campaign rally no matter how much the taxpayers were bilked for it. Of course, the president's speech was pure culture-war vitriol, complete with classic Trumpian projection, this time when he called anti-racist activists "fascists," an extraordinary word choice that obviously better suits him.

Businesses tied to President Donald Trump’s family and associates stand to receive as much as $21 million in government loans designed to shore up payroll expenses for companies struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to federal data released Monday.

A hydroponic lettuce farm backed by Trump’s eldest son, Donald Jr., applied for at least $150,000 in Small Business Administration funding. Albert Hazzouri, a dentist frequently spotted at Mar-a-Lago, asked for a similar amount. A hospital run by Maria Ryan, a close associate of Trump lawyer and former mayor Rudy Giuliani, requested more than $5 million. Several companies connected to the president’s son-in-law and White House adviser, Jared Kushner, could get upward of $6 million.
