WASHINGTON — for lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn, who is president-elect donald J. Trump’s choice for national security adviser, pushing conspiracy theories about hillary clinton is a family affair: both he and his son, michael G. Flynn, have used social media to spread fake news stories linking mrs. Clinton to underage sex rings and other serious crimes, backed by no evidence.

The twitter habits of both men are attracting renewed attention after a man fired a rifle on sunday inside comet ping pong, a washington pizza restaurant that was the subject of false stories during the campaign tying it and the clinton campaign to a child sex trafficking ring.

Well before he joined the trump campaign, the elder mr. Flynn, 57, a former director of the defense intelligence agency, pushed unsubstantiated claims about islamic law’s spreading in the united states and about the attack on the american diplomatic compound in benghazi, libya.Money laundering in hindi but in his emergence this year as the angry former general out to help mr. Trump clean up washington, mr. Flynn added wild stories about hillary clinton to his stock of unproven tales.

Six days before the election, for instance, mr. Flynn posted on twitter a fake news story that claimed the police and prosecutors in new york had found evidence linking mrs. Clinton and much of her senior campaign staff to pedophilia, money laundering, perjury and other felonies.

Mr. Welch’s violent reaction to the hoax did not appear to faze the younger mr. Flynn: on sunday, hours after the gunfire, he went on twitter to say that until “pizzagate” was proved false, it remained a story.Money laundering in hindi

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 —

Michael G. Flynn, 33, is more than just a relative of an incoming senior administration official. In recent years, he has served as the chief of staff to his father, who started a private intelligence and consulting business, the flynn intel group, after being forced to retire from the military in 2014.

Throughout the campaign, michael G. Flynn served as a gatekeeper for his father, and he now appears to have a job with the trump transition team. Email sent to an address at the flynn intel group returned with an automated response that provided a new email contact for both flynns, and each had a trump transition email address that ended with .Gov.

He used twitter to spread others’ suggestions that mrs.Money laundering in hindi clinton and president obama were “at the center” of the conflict in syria and profiting from it and that both would be tried for treason if mr. Trump was elected. He shared a fake news story that claimed hackers had found video evidence that president bill clinton had raped a teenage girl.

And in a twitter message that he deleted after CNN found it in november, he questioned what was wrong with dating websites that were only for white people, saying black americans have BET, a television network that caters largely to black viewers.

Since sunday’s gunfire at comet ping pong, michael G. Flynn has also continued to retweet messages that say the news media has sought to normalize pedophilia.

His father, in contrast, has kept a lower profile since the election. He has not given interviews — he did not respond to requests for comment on monday — and he has kept his twitter postings relatively tame, publishing patriotic messages on veterans day and more recently praising mr.Money laundering in hindi trump’s selection of gen. James N. Mattis, a retired marine, as defense secretary.

General mattis…Another amazing choice for our country. @realdonaldtrump @mike pence mean what they say! We will #MAGA thank you america! Https://t.Co/spf0ounpmo —

His role as national security adviser calls for mediating the conflicting views of cabinet secretaries and agencies, and sifting fact from speculation and rumor to help the new president decide how the united states should react to international crises.

It is a role that is likely to take on outsize importance for mr. Trump, who has no experience in defense or foreign policy issues and has a habit of making broad assertions that are not based in fact.

Mr. Flynn, though, has shown similar inclinations both on twitter and in regular life. His sometimes dubious assertions became so familiar to subordinates at the defense intelligence agency that they came up with a name for the phenomenon: they called them “flynn facts.”
