Flynn was an early surrogate of President Donald Trump and a frequent guest on Republican-leaning Fox News programs. At the 2016 Republican National Convention, Flynn led the crowd in chants of “lock her up” due to allegations that Clinton mishandled classified information via a private email server. Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., also made references to the debunked “pizza-gate” conspiracy theory, whose proponents falsely claim that a family pizza parlor in Washington, D.C., is the home of a child-sex ring run by Democrats.
