Retired Gen. McCaffrey: Time to Re-Examine Flynn's 'Demented' Tweets

Retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey is calling for Michael Flynn's appointment as President-elect Donald Trump's national security adviser to be re-examined because some of his tweets border on being "demented."

McCaffrey once supported Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, but now is backing off.

"I said he was, correctly, probably the best intelligence officer of his generation," McCaffrey told NBC News.

"But, I must admit, I'm now extremely uneasy about some of these tweets which don't sound as if they are political skullduggery, but instead border on being demented. I think we need to look into this and sort out what's going on here.

"I think it needs closer scrutiny. I think we need to aggressively examine what was going on with General Flynn and his son dealing with these transparent, nearly demented tweets that were going out."

The Washington Examiner says McCaffrey was referring to Flynn's musings of fake news stories about Hillary Clinton during the election. The website notes some of the stories alleged she was involved in pedophilia with her husband Bill.

Flynn's son has also come under fire recently for spreading stories relating to "Pizza Gate" — a conspiracy theory claiming the Clintons ran a child sex ring out of a pizza shop, the Examiner reports.
