Flynn’s brother sues CNN for ‘false’ Q-anon association claim

Former national security advisor Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s brother, Jack Flynn, filed a defamation lawsuit against CNN for $75 million Thursday.

“Plaintiffs are not followers or supporters of any extremist or terrorist groups, including QAnon,” the suit reads. “CNN falsely attributed to Plaintiffs associations that never existed, actions Plaintiffs never took, including an oath of allegiance to QAnon, and views Plaintiffs never held.”

According to the Hill, Flynn is suing over a Feb. 4 report claiming the Flynn family pledged allegiance to Q-anon and that the clan were supporters of the group.

“CNN’s false attributions exposed Plaintiffs to public scorn, ridicule and contempt, and lowered their esteem in the community, causing insult, embarrassment, humiliation and substantial injury to Plaintiffs’ reputations,” the suit says.

The suit says the TV segment used an edited version of a July 4 video posted by Gen. Flynn showing him, his brother, and other family members saying a pledge. The suit is for “fraudulently making it appear and insinuating that [Jack and Leslie] pledged an oath of allegiance to QAnon,” according to the suit.

A CNN spokesperson would not comment on the matter to the Hill.

“As a policy we don’t comment on litigation,” they said.

Just The News put together a terrifying report on the announcement by officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Enforcement and Removal Operations. Data released Monday unearthed that the agency arrested more than 130 sex offenders illegally present in the United States in a nationwide campaign.

From Oct. 22 through Nov. 4, law enforcement arrested 138 noncitizens, “including some with an executable final order of removal,” ICE wrote in a statement about the operation.

“Many of those arrested were described as citizens of Mexico who were convicted of child sex crimes. Offenders’ published ages ranged from 24 to 65″ adds Just The News.

“These sex offenders will be removed from the U.S., ending and impeding their ability to further victimize residents,” said Salt Lake City ICE official Michael Bernacke.

Five noncitizen sex offenders were apprehended in the Salt Lake City area, 21 were arrested in the Los Angeles area, five in the Seattle area and 15 in the San Francisco area.

ICE’s removal office conducted 3,415 arrests of noncitizens for sexual assaults last fiscal year, authorities said.
