President Trump blasted as “pretend information” a report that he inquired about an thought from retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn to impose martial regulation throughout a current White Home assembly.
“Martial regulation = Faux Information,” Trump tweeted on Saturday. “Simply extra knowingly dangerous reporting!”
In a Newsmax look earlier within the week, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn — Trump’s former nationwide safety advisor, pardoned by the president final month — reportedly urged Trump to institute martial regulation and “rerun” the election beneath the army’s watch.
Throughout the Friday assembly, the Occasions report claimed Trump requested about that concept.
Flynn was current through the Friday assembly, as was his lawyer, Sidney Powell, probably the most outspoken proponents of claims that President-elect Joe Biden’s victory was illegitimate, the report stated.
The Democratic Biden’s victory was affirmed by the Electoral Faculty final week.
Early Sunday, Trump fired off one other tweet repeating the declare that he was cheated.
“GREATEST ELECTION FRAUD IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY!!!” he wrote within the submit, which was flagged by Twitter over its “disputed” veracity.
