While speaking to a group of reporters this Sunday, GOP candidate for the Pennsylvania Senate Everett Stern revealed that aides for former national security advisor Michael Flynn once approached him and asked him to “gather intelligence” on various lawmakers with the purpose of extorting them.
“They wanted to gather intelligence on senators, judges, congressmen, state reps, to move them towards the audit. The word ‘move’ was emphasized tremendously,” Stern said. “What they wanted was to extort and to literally move people towards the audit with dirt.”
Stern’s remarks were posted to his Twitter account this Sunday.

Stern said he believes he was singled out by Flynn’s people because his private intelligence agency, Tactical Rabbit, had access to a wide range of lawmakers.
Stern said [Flynn’s group] the Patriot Caucus was running operations out of multiple states, including Oklahoma, Nebraska and Virginia, using the financial support of Texas billionaire Al Hartman. In Pennsylvania, Stern said he was given two main targets to focus on: Republican Senator Pat Toomey and Republican Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick.
Stern claims Flynn’s group told him to gather intelligence and to “accomplish the mission even if you have to use domestic terrorism.”
“The severity and the danger of domestic terrorism in this group became very, very apparent to me. It was extremely disturbing,” Stern said.
“I believe that General Flynn has committed treason against the United States,” Stern said. “Based on what I have seen and witnessed, I truly believe that’s the case.”
