WASHINGTON (MEREDITH/AP) -- Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to weigh in on National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's resignation, and responded to a tweet suggesting that he get a new job at Domino's. 

Flynn resigned Monday, Feb. 13 after questions about his contacts with Russia reached a fever pitch. 

In the aftermath, Clinton's former aide Phillipe Reines sent a tweet about the pizzeria gig in reference to #Pizzagate, a debunked conspiracy theory that alleged Clinton and her campaign ran a child-sex ring inside the DC restaurant Comet Ping Pong. Flynn's son, Michael Flynn Jr., also lost his job on Trump's campaign after tweeting about the conspiracy theory in December 2016.

"Dear Mike Flynn and Mike Flynn Jr., what goes around COMETS around," Reines wrote, along with a link to Domino's career site.

Clinton shared the tweet and wrote, "Phillipe's got his own way of saying things, but he has a point about the real consequences of fake news..."

Flynn stepped down from his position after reports he misled the vice president about his conversations with Russia.

In January, the Justice Department warned the White House that Flynn could be in a compromised position because of contradictions between the public depictions of U.S. phone calls with foreign officials and what intelligence officials knew to be true based on recordings of the conversations.

President Donald Trump has since named Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg as the acting national security adviser.
