In a series of tweets, President Trump reacted strongly to the explosive unsealed documents that show FBI agents discussed entrapping former national security adviser Michael Flynn "to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired."

Trump took aim at the FBI and the media, calling what happened a "scam" that should "never be allowed to happen to a citizen of the United States again!"

General Flynn, meanwhile, responded to the bombshell report with a rare tweet, sharing a wordless video simply showing an American flag flying in the wind:

The president retweeted Flynn's video — twice.

Donald Trump Jr. also shared the video and added:

"Imagine having your life and reputation ruined by rogue US govt. officials. Then years later when the plot finally comes to light the first thing you do is post an American flag. This is the guy they wanted you to believe was a Russian asset. ?"
