Top House Democrats ripped outgoing national security adviser Mike Flynn for a tweet sent from a fake account purporting to be Flynn on Tuesday morning.

The account "@GenMikeFlynn" tweeted early Tuesday that he was being made into a "scapegoat" for his contacts with the Russian government. However, that's not Flynn's Twitter account — he had previously tweeted from @GenFlynn, which was deleted last month.

Apparently someone in the offices of Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi didn't notice the differences.
