National Security Adviser Michael Flynn allegedly said QAnon is ‘total nonsense’ in secret exchange

Former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn reportedly suggested that QAnon is a disinformation campaign orchestrated by the CIA. Flynn publicly pledged allegiance to the group last summer, which first originated on internet message boards. 

In a telephone call that has not yet to be 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. 

Later in the call, the same man can be heard stating how the conspiracy movement was ‘total nonsense’ calling it a “disinformation campaign created by the left”. 

“I think it’s a disinformation campaign. There’s actually a very interesting article today out that was sent to me, I’ll send it to you, about how the QAnon movement has failed and all that. But I find it total nonsense, and I think it’s a disinformation campaign created by the left,” he said. 

The group has previously been classified as a national security threat by the FBI.
