Fox’s Shepard Smith: Flynn Defenses You Heard Here and Elsewhere ‘Blew Up Today’

Fox News’ Shepard Smith opened today with the big news from the Michael Flynn sentencing hearing and one of the key takeaways.

The judge excoriated Flynn for being an unregistered foreign agent and said he arguably sold out his country.

But there was one moment in particular that Smith noted as a pretty clear refutation of what Flynn defenders have been saying, including on Fox News:

“The judge also questioning Flynn… and his lawyer about their memo last week that suggested that FBI agents might have tricked the former national security advisor when they didn’t tell him lying to the FBI is a crime. You heard the theory floated by the White House and its defenders here and elsewhere. That all blew up today. Michael Flynn himself said he is not challenging the circumstances of the interview, that he knew lying to the feds was a crime when he lied to the feds, that he was not entrapped, that he was guilty.”
