General Michael Flynn made a surprise phone call to legendary radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Flynn, who has rarely made public comments on his case, called Limbaugh to celebrate the appeals court decision to accept the Justice Department's motion to dismiss criminal charges against him.
Limbaugh was not expecting the phone call at all.
It was a true surprise and Limbaugh was "stunned" when his phone screener announcewd that General Flynn was on the line.
Listen to the full exchange below:
Before General Flynn called into the show, Rush Limbaugh already spent much of the morning discussing the ruling.
Limbaugh raised the point that Flynn's case is putting the spotlight on potential corruption within the Obama / Biden administration.
See Limbaugh's comments on the case before General Flynn himself surprised Limbaugh with a call!
Limbaugh is still the #1 listened to radio program in the country, despite the left-wing efforts to derail and "cancel" him over the years.
Conservatives consider Limbaugh a true stalwart, which is likely why General Flynn trusted Rush with the call.
The Washington Examiner has more details on the rare appearance by General Flynn:
Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn made rare public comments on his case during a surprise interview on conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh's radio show.
Flynn, who was briefly President Trump's national security adviser in 2017, called in to Limbaugh's radio program after an appeals court panel ruled in a 2-1 decision to order the judge to accept the Justice Department's motion to dismiss criminal charges against him.
"I'm told that we have Gen. Flynn on the phone?" Limbaugh began. "Michael Flynn, you are here on the EIB Network's phone. Is that right?"
"How about that, Rush? Yeah, this is Mike Flynn. How you doing?" Flynn said.
"I'm great," Limbaugh said. "I'm a little stunned."
"The decision today is really, it's a good thing for Gen. Flynn. It's a good thing for me. It's a good thing for my family. But it's really a great boost of confidence for the American people in our justice system," Flynn said. "Because that's what this really comes down to, is whether or not our justice system is going to have the confidence of the American people."
Flynn, who was Trump's first national security adviser, pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to FBI investigators about his December 2016 conversations with a Russian envoy about a United Nations resolution on Israel and sanctions. But Flynn now claims he was set up by the FBI, and the Justice Department is seeking to drop the case.
"I will just tell you that I have always believed and fought for our rule of law," Flynn said. "The most important thing that we have in this country, bar none, is that. And we have to make it work, whether we like it or not."
Flynn told Limbaugh that "elections matter" and later noted his case is not over. "The struggle for this country will never end," Flynn said.
U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, who was appointed by former President Bill Clinton and has handled Flynn's case since 2017, could request a rehearing “en banc” before the full appeals court, and it is possible that one of the other judges on the appeals court could request such a hearing “sua sponte” even if Sullivan does not request it himself.
While General Flynn's case is certainly a warning of government corruption, it's also a hopeful sign that the truth always prevails.
It was revealed that the FBI "set-up" Flynn with the goal of getting him to lie, rather than tell the truth, so that they could charge him.
Prior to the investigation, General Flynn was one of the most respected individuals in the U.S. armed forces.
Fortunately now that the legal nightmare has ended, General Flynn can begin the fight of clearing up his good name.
Mediaite reports that Flynn told Limbaugh the ruling was a "great boost of confidence" in the justice system:
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn surprised radio host Rush Limbaugh with a call to his radio show on Wednesday, telling Limbaugh that an appeal court ruling in his favor just hours earlier was “a great boost of confidence for the American people in our justice system.”
“I will just tell you that I have always believed and fought for our rule of law,” Flynn said. “The most important thing that we have in this country, bar none, is that. And we have to make it work, whether we like it or not.”
In a 2-1 decision, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled Wednesday that District Judge Emmet Sullivan must dismiss a criminal case against Flynn for allegedly lying to FBI investigators about his contact with Russia’s ambassador prior to Flynn’s brief tenure as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser. Justice Department prosecutors filed a motion in May to dismiss the charges, but Sullivan expressed objection, appointing a former judge to argue against the Justice Department’s position.
Writing for the majority, Appellate Judge Neomi Rao said Sullivan made a “clear legal error,” writing, “This is not the unusual case where a more searching inquiry is justified.”
Flynn told Limbaugh the battle was a “knife fight” and added “the struggle for our country will never end.”
The "strugle for our country" this year will reach a head in November.
As voters, we have a choice between President Trump, who stands to put America and ALL Americans first... Or Joe Biden, who is a puppet for the radical left.
We must continue to voice and show our support for President Trump!
