During a press briefing held by House Democrats regarding the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi cited a tweet from a phony Michael Flynn Twitter account that claimed Flynn viewed himself as the “sole scapegoat” of the controversy surrounding his resignation.
It’s not surprising that Pelosi viewed the tweet in question as factual as both The New York Times and Newsmax had reported on it as such earlier in the day.
DC Examiner’s Gabby Morrongiello pointed out that Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) had also fallen victim to the fake tweet in his prepared remarks.
