Liz and Andrew break down the latest LOLsuit from Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
You may recall Gen. Flynn from screeching “Lock Her Up!” on the campaign trail while surreptitiously serving as an unauthorized lobbyist for Turkey’s brutal authoritarian regime. You may recall him as a pro-Russian stooge who lied about being a pro-Russian stooge. And you may recall him as having been pardoned by Donald Trump after Bill Barr tried to rig the Department of Justice in his favor.
However you remember this bozo, you’ll be shocked to discover that he now thinks he deserves FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS for… having friends in high places. Fortunately, his lawsuit doesn’t stand a chance in hell of succeeding, as Liz and Andrew make clear.
