Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was the target of a sham FBI investigation about lying about contacts with Russia’s ambassador, and then further targeted by a federal judge who refused then-Attorney General Bill Barr’s efforts to do right by Flynn by dropping the charges.
More recently, and despite a pardon from former President Donald Trump, Chase Bank became the latest to target Flynn.
On Sunday, Flynn posted on social media a letter he reportedly received on Aug. 20 from the Fortune 500 company canceling his accounts.
“After careful consideration,” the letter said, “we decided to close your credit cards on September 18, 2021 because continuing the relationship creates possible reputational risk to our company. You may receive additional account closing notifications if you have other accounts under a different name or address.”
In response Flynn posted on the social media platform Telegram a Justice Department press release noting that Chase Bank was zapped with a $920 million fine to fend off criminal charges of unlawful trading in the precious metals market.
“Chase Bank has gone full blown woke! They need to deal with their own reputation instead of persecuting my family and I,” Flynn posted on Telegram. The Justice Department “dropped my case for their own egregious government misconduct, appears you weren’t that lucky with the DOJ. I guess my America First political views don’t align with yours. Your loss.”
On Tuesday, The Blaze reported that Chase Bank had second thoughts. A bank spokesperson told the news website that it had “made an error” and apologized to “her.”
The Blaze speculated that the use of that pronoun meant the original letter was sent to Gen. Flynn’s wife, Lori.
Nonetheless, Flynn had noted in his first post that Chase bank was persecuting his family and himself.
Afterward, Flynn posted on Telegram, “I want to sincerely thank everyone for your unwavering support for my family and I over this Chase Bank cancel culture nonsense. We’ll fight through it like everything else we’ve experienced these past six years.”
“If Chase had any commonsense and gave serious thought to the current environment, instead of attacking my family because of our differing political views, they should immediately create a fund for the recently and tragically killed service members and those family members left behind. Chase bank probably doesn’t understand what the term Gold Star means but it is an unimaginably difficult time for the family members of those left behind,” Flynn added.
“My family and I are blessed because we are alive and have each other. I pray Chase Bank and all their cancel culture partners think twice about what they are doing to destroy the fabric of our constitution. Trust me, the heart and soul of America will NEVER be broken. We the people will prevail.”
