Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn accepted his position as a hero to QAnon conspiracy theorists. He took the oath of QAnon, sold QAnon t-shirts, and even auction a QAnon quilt. He appeared at a QAnon conference and signed books with the tagline QAnon. Some QAnon followers even believe that Flynn is “Q”, the mysterious figure behind QAnon.
But an audio recording released Saturday night by a one-time ally of Flynn reveals that the retired three-star general discreetly believes QAnon is “complete nonsense.”
On Saturday night, pro-Trump and QAnon lawyers push for Lin Wood release a recording The purpose was a phone call between Wood and Flynn on Telegram. The audio track was released amid a raging right-wing civil war with Wood against one-time allies like Flynn and other figures involved in the effort to overturn the 2020 election.
During the call, Wood complained to Flynn that his QAnon supporters had attacked Wood online. But Flynn tries to get rid of QAnon, calling it a “disinformation campaign” created by the CIA.
“I think it’s a disinformation campaign,” Flynn said on the call. “I think it was a disinformation campaign that the CIA created. That’s what I believe. Now, I don’t know if that’s true, but that’s what I think. I think it’s a disinformation campaign.”
Later in the recording, Flynn calls QAnon “complete nonsense.”
“I find it completely pointless,” Flynn said. “And I think it’s a disinformation campaign created by the left.”
Flynn could not be reached for comment.
