retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who served a short stint as then-President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, lauded House conservatives for pushing Speaker Kevin McCarthy to adopt what he sees as a key rule change in exchange for their support.
Flynn, whose tenure with the Trump administration was cut short by a scandal not of his own making, praised the group of Freedom Caucus members for extracting a pledge from the California Republican to establish a committee tasked with examining the alleged politicization of the Justice Department and FBI against Americans with certain political and cultural viewpoints.
Specifically, Flynn focused on a rule he believes “could give us one more opportunity to restore much of our constitutional republic,” and “could lead to the exposure of the long train of abuses that have been visited on Americans by a politicized FBI, Justice Department, and the larger security state.”
The rule, which has since been adopted, calls for creating a subcommittee under the House Judiciary Committee, now led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). The resolution established “a Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government as a select investigative subcommittee of the Committee on the Judiciary,” Flynn noted, citing the language of the rule.
“For the past six months, the organization I have the privilege to head, America’s Future, has been conducting an examination of how two components of the federal government have been weaponized against the American people. The results have been published in a series of 18 reports called “Unequal Justice Under Law,” which have focused on the FBI and the DOJ,” Flynn noted in his column.
