Former White House national security adviser and ardent supporter of QAnon, Michael Flynn, allegedly suggested the far-right political conspiracy theory movement is in fact a disinformation campaign orchestrated by the CIA.
Flynn publicly pledged allegiance to the right-wing conspiracy group last summer, which first originated on internet message boards.
But in a telephone call that has not yet been independently verified, Flynn, a former adviser to Trump appeared to completely disavow the group as he spoke with pro-Trump election conspiracy theorist and attorney Lin Wood. The man Wood says is Flynn was even heard dismissing QAnon’s claims as ‘total nonsense.’
Wood recorded and posted it to his Telegram channel on Saturday.
‘I think it’s a disinformation campaign. I think it’s a disinformation campaign that the CIA created. That’s what I believe. Now, I don’t know that for a fact, but that’s what I think it is,’ The man said to be Flynn could be heard saying on the recording.
