A month after he was pardoned by President Donald Trump for lying to the FBI about contacts with then Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak after the 2016 election, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn said he had to "fear God" in Barack Obama, citing the fact that ex-President Trump warned not to hire him in 2016.
Flynn "Put the Fear of God" in Obama
"I must have put fear of God in Barack Obama, and probably still because of that four-year saga that they led me, my family, President Donald J. Trump and his family and frankly the whole country through," Flynn said on Saturday during an interview with Fox News host, Judge Jeanine Pirro.
Flynn didn't stop and suggested that Obama warned Trump not to hire him because Flynn would expose his administration's role in allegedly spying on Trump's presidential campaign.
“When he selected me as national security advisor, they knew their little plan to spy on Donald Trump was going to fall apart and many other foreign policy mistakes they'd embroiled our country in, whether it was the Iran deal, problems in Asia had – Pacific theater, trade, all sorts of problems the last government had to openly drown this country, ”explained Flynn in his first interview since his pardon.

“They knew these were the kind of things I was aware of. Let's be honest. Barack Obama appointed me twice. During my military service, I was elected twice by the Senate, ”he added. "So it's amazing what he would focus on during the transition for the United States. In fact, it's outrageous."
Flynn explains everything he knows about investigations into Russia
Obama is probably not happy that Flynn has also promised to "present" everything he knows about the Russia investigation once a day. According to the New York Post, Obama dismissed Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014 because of management issues.

Flynn was Trump's national security advisor for just 25 days before being ousted over reports that he lied to FBI agents about his conversations with Kislyak. In December 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents only to later attempt to withdraw the plea that he had not deliberately lied.
