After Pizzagate blew up into an almost deadly confrontation at a DC restaurant because Trump supporters pushed a fake story, Gen. Michael Flynn's son has been booted off the transition team because of his continued support for the conspiracy that Pizzagate is a valid news story.
Jason Miller, Trump's mouthpiece told reporters Tuesday that Michael Flynn Jr., the son of former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, had been helping his father with "administration and scheduling duties early on in the transition process."
"He is no longer involved in transition efforts."
Flynn's son tweeted this Sunday, after the potentially deadly Pizzagate incident took place.
Until #Pizzagate proven to be false, it'll remain a story. The left seems to forget #PodestaEmails and the many "coincidences" tied to it. https://t.co/8HA9y30Yfp

CNN has reported that Flynn junior has an official government transition email address.
Andrew Kaczynski reported, "An email to Flynn's son on his consulting group email, which worked last week, also bounced back."
Vice President-elect Mike Pence told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Tuesday morning that the son has "no involvement in the transition team whatsoever."
Even the Vice President-elect can't give an honest answer when asked to do so.
Hey, the son was only carrying on his father's tradition of spreading fake news stories...
