On Friday, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) called out Michael Flynn’s case as “ridiculous” and “embarrassing” while interviewing with Fox News host Neil Cavuto. Special counsel Robert Mueller responded to Michael Flyn’s defense team by stating that he should know better than to lie to federal agents.
“A sitting National Security Advisor, former head of an intelligence agency, retired Lieutenant General, and 33-year veteran of the armed forces knows he should not lie to federal agents,” the filing stated.
Nunes argued that Flynn was “entrapped” and that the case “infuriates” him.
“Do you think in the case of Michael Flynn that he was being set up?” Cavuto asked.
“This is nothing short of entrapment. This of all things infuriates me,” Nunes answered.
“He still pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents. He admitted he lied,” Cavuto said.
Nunes argued that he believes that Flynn did not truly lie.
“I think the whole thing is ridiculous. This is an embarrassment for our country. It’s called entrapment. I think General Flynn had no place to go and no money left. It was the only thing he could do,” Nunes said.
“Nobody had a gun to his head,” Cavuto said.
