John "Jack" Flynn, brother of former national security adviser and retired Gen. Michael Flynn, and his wife Leslie sued CNN for $75 million in a defamation lawsuit filed in federal court. The Flynns said they "are not followers or supporters of any extremist or terrorist groups, including QAnon" and never took "an oath of allegiance to QAnon."

The magistrate* judge, though, said they they were not defamed.

The judge wrote: "The Flynns’ own statements establish that they meet the dictionary definition of a follower of QAnon."

Huh. The Flynn Family is officially QAnon.

I did Nazi that coming.

* The recommendation is from a magistrate judge, meaning the ruling must be still be adopted by a district court judge before becoming final.
