Retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn accused former secretary of state Colin L. Powell of writing “really mean things” in his private emails late Wednesday, after Powell’s emails were leaked online and showed him lambasting Flynn as “right-wing nutty” and a poor leader before retiring.
Flynn, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s top military adviser, questioned why current and former senior officials haven’t yet learned that they will be targets to hackers.
“I have said ‘I would love to have my emails hacked’ — and people, I know they have tried it — because … I’m not disparaging people in my emails,” Flynn said in an interview with Fox News’s Megyn Kelly. “I’m being very honest, very blunt. … What I say publicly is what I say in my private email communications. I don’t screw around like that because I was taught as a young kid by my father to treat others like you like to be treated. And that’s the Golden Rule.”
