    They are so butt hurt over losing they are willing to commit Treason, if that isn’t a wake up call I don’t know what is!

  2. There was a reason why Flynn was in prison and this was the reason why Trump pardoned him.

  3. Trumps fear of going to jail is what is driving his actions. You who voted for him thought he was going to do better..you were so wrong!!

  4. I remember when the red line was just firing Comey. Then it was firing Sessions (Lindsey Graham said there would be “hell to pay”). Now at the end of his term we’re wondering if declaring martial law and nullifying the election to remain in power is a red line. Maybe there is no red line for Republicans…

  5. Michael Flynn that’s a Treasonous move, but what can we expect when you give a freebie to a felon he goes back immediately to what he knows best

  6. Why is Michael Flynn even at the White House

    • @James Spackman I don’t see tRump going to prison, not his family. Just a hunch. Not being Above the law is a joke. Let you or I had done what they have done. We would be in jail and like monopoly, don’t collect the $ 200. I did hope tRump would have been good, but oh! Well.

      @Nhoc Dug what happens to Trump depends largely on the internal politics of Biden’s cabinet and who emerges as their next candidate.

      (I’m assuming Biden won’t run again due to age).

    • @James Spackman we will see. But, even if tRump steps down and Pence pardons him and he steps back up. They say federal charges though pardoned won’t affect state charges. Hey! James. Just a question. On vaccine. What would you do. I am HIV pos. Everytime I took the flu shot I got sick for a while. As having the regular flu but worse. Longer than regular flu like others who are not immune compromised. Seriously. Would you put a virus into your system. Like this? I have nothing against others that choose to take it, but me I choose to double mask wear, wash hands and be safe for me, my family and all others.

    • @James Spackman I agree. The good point is all of these rich or so called rich and in politics are getting caught. Prosecute them and any other pedophiles, rapists, murderers, tax frauds, and any crimes prosecutable by law. No matter who they are. Them saying no one is above the law is a lie. Look at what we have been through. He is above the law. Presidential immunity. The republiCONS show that. Democrats show their weakness. 3 branches no equal power.

  7. Michael Flynn proved once again he’s a traitor.

    • A traitor from who Chyna he doesn’t want Trint Us sitting in our back door here that’s what’s going to happen you guys keep jacking things around BLM and antifa flat suck so does the Democrats if you support that crap

    • @Javier Aviles I’ll tell you who’s stupid the Democrats and Biden and his whole team for cheating the BLM supporters and antifa that helped along with China do you want China to move in this country that’s what you’re going to get you keep supporting this crap

    • @Lumberjack Lmfaooooo……. Fox news is already starting to retract their lies over fear of getting sued for defamation. Wake up, smart mark. You believing that the election was stolen from Trump just makes you just another sad member of Trumps pissy posse.

      Guess Fox realized they don’t have the same protection in spreading misinformation and lies as Trump does and its gonna cost them millions

    • … and trump not, right ?

      @G. Hawk that goes without saying.

  8. Gee, “some” Republicans are against a Military Coup…
    so impressed!

  9. It is a rumor and or conspiracy theory. Funny how many people believe anything they hear.

  10. Only fools believe this election was fraud…

  11. Surely Flynn can’t get pardoned twice? Later, jail him for attempted sedition.

  12. And you wonder why Obama fired flynn as the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency..

    • @Richie Tattersall That is exactly why Trump hired Flynn.

      @Tony Curry Thank you for such a thoughtful and gentle response you used to offer more information. Personally, I am so tired of people taking sides and getting so defensive or shooting others down. I myself got caught in that now and then. I pray you and your family are well. Happy holidays and I pray this next year we have a moment as the country did after WWII, back to joy and excitement to be able to do life again 😁

    • @Tony Curry Thanks for the corect info.. I’m as disabled Army veteran myself and served at the same time you did. So much has changed since I was in the Army in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Enjoy your holiday and stay safe and healthy!👍😷

    • @Dr. G they actually specialize in spying on us .. run black site prisons, their very existence is unconstitutional, they are traitors to democracy . That’s what the NSA is.

    • @Ray Imes oh why did I know a comment like this would turn up.

  13. These acts of TREASON cannot ever be condoned or forgotten.

    • Unless it’s from the person on the other side of the political isle, right?

      @Andrew Ulanowski Not quite that simple.

      Sedition is mainly a charge levelled at the People, and was used in a way deemed unconstitutional in the United States.

      As far as treason, here’s a passage that gives context and precedent:

      From Wikipedia–
      Charles I in England and Louis XVI in France were found guilty of such treason and duly executed. However, when Charles II was restored to his throne, he considered the revolutionaries who sentenced his father to death as having been traitors in the more traditional sense.

      In modern times, “traitor” and “treason” are mainly used with reference to a person helping an enemy in time of war or conflict.

      Many nations’ laws mention various types of treason. “Crimes Related to Insurrection” is the internal treason, and may include a coup d’état. “Crimes Related to Foreign Aggression” is the treason of cooperating with foreign aggression positively regardless of the national inside and outside. “Crimes Related to Inducement of Foreign Aggression” is the crime of communicating with aliens secretly to cause foreign aggression or menace. Depending on the country, conspiracy is added to these.


    • President Trump’s “most important speech”

  14. You can’t return an election just because you don’t like the results this election is over period

  15. The Congressman is still normalizing the outrageous.

  16. The finale of White House Apprentice is ending exactly as expected

  17. He pleads guilty 2 times. Then gets pardoned, now he’s a moral compass? Please

  18. The conspiracy theories are the basis of his party. Why’s he even talking?

  19. Twitter is like a truck stop toilet that never gets cleaned.

  20. Flynn should be charged with treason along with Trump and those 100 or so house members and senators for trying to subvert the will of the people.
