Trump Vet Sparks ‘Coup’ Backlash As Trump Faces Legal Jeopardy | MSNBC

 

Disgraced general Michael Flynn advocated for a coup at a right-wing event over Memorial Day weekend. He has since backtracked, claiming he was misunderstood. MSNBC's Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber reports on the criticism Flynn faces for stoking violence, explains how similar calls to arms led to the insurrection at the Capitol, and discusses new evidence in the investigation into the Jan. 6 riot.

    1. All of what crimes? He pleaded guilty to perjury only. Btw, because he lied about talking to a foreign official before inauguration day. Apparently the left thinks this was a bad thing in his case but completely normal in every other case. Biden Admin officials met with Russian officials before election day and the press called it “getting down to business”.
      The double standards here are crazy but not surprising. Without double standards, the left would have no standards at all.

    2. @Auburn Guitar it wasn’t the fact that he met with them…..he did it in secret, then lied about it….why? What was he trying to hide?
      JFC, Republicans impeached Clinton over a lie about a consensual affair

    3. @Auburn Guitar  Yeah you should prolly inform yourself a little more as to what Flynn actually did. I mean he was a United States general and had a security clearance and was tapped to be a NSA and was not only meeting off the books with the Russians, to assure them trump would be lax with sanctions for the Crimea annexation but he was also on turkeys payroll and not disclosing that he was receiving money by turkey while actively holding a security clearance. Talking about no standards? None of that is even remotely comparable or similar at all to Biden in his official capacity as president of the us meeting with Russians. I mean ffs dude your defending a man who wore the uniform of a us general and who on Memorial Day literally openly said there’s no reason why the coup that happened in mynmar can’t happen here but it should, and a guy who was whispering in the presidents ear to instate martial law because he lost an election and your talking about double standards and no standards. Y’all have gone way tf off the deep end smh.

    1. @DVDA only death penalty will do. Don’t care what the law says. death penalty or no America.

    2. @Growth is Freedom United Earth Enterprise i… i guess… that seems a bit extreme in my opinion, but I’m not adversed to it. As long as there’s a fair trial and the charges are proved. I guess… i dunno, that kind of rhetoric sounds more like them, not us. Maybe I’m wrong. An example does need to be made, publicly, swift and harsh. That much I could abide.

    3. @DVDA When we put these people into prison, they are able to recruit soldiers 7 times faster than when they are not in prison.
      So if they were to be in prison, they would have to have zero human contact at all, for the rest of their lives.
      Most experts would tell you that death penalty is more humane than that.
      Bottom line, we MUST make certain that they have no way to relate their ideas to others, ever.

    4. @Jennifer Erickson the 28th was getting Trump out of office I thought?? My bad you got me on that I guess you win

  1. Republican Congressmen do NOT want a commission to investigate Jan 6 because they will discover their own role in the coup

  2. He needs to be jailed and striped of his General title!! Sedition and traitors roaming free to call for another coup!

    1. @Andy Lord remember the TV show branded that should happen to Trump and all of his followers in the house and senate they are traitors if they get there way they will confiscate all of the lawfull gun owners of there weapons because we will be under a dictatorship can’t you people see what’s coming down the road if these Trump Republicans get reelected it’s plain as day there trying to overthrow our democracy and it’s going to be a sad day.

    2. @Nevanna Rence Correct. Strip it in a televised court martial and let it serve as a warning to any others in a command position. You obey the People. On Jan 20th, your boss changes. They learn that on the 1st day of their appointment. “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic… So help me God.”
      and it doesn’t have an expiration date.

    1. Arresting someone for sedition happens across Asia all the time. “it should happen in America too”.

    2. As retired military, with a pension and an ID card, he is under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

      “CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES
      §2383. Rebellion or insurrection
      Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

    3. @Captn Torch • Thanks for providing the citation. I get so tired of reading people who just want to spout off without checking the facts. If these people are as intellectually lazy at work as they are in the YouTube comment section, we’re doomed. Sigh.

  3. American citizens cheering for the overthrow of our Constitutional republic. This is what the GOP has allowed to happen in their ranks.

    1. @MegaRussell12 lol, you are funny. You’re not creative enough to disguise the link?
      Remove the first part!
      🙂
      Maybe tell me exactly what to google so I can see what you are?
      lol

    2. @BitBuhkit dude google is part of the problem. Google anything and you get 100s of articles with left wing propaganda before you get anything legitimate.

    1. Violating the 1st amendment.

      Anyone who advises violent protest… direct betrayal of the constitution.

    2. Well if that’s his message, I’ve got a response to that message; I won’t be taken by surprise. If he chooses to go to war with our government, then he will be at war with me.

    3. Indeed, he does speak constantly what sound like crystal-meth messages.

      Most importantly he ade big bank from acting as a foreign agent for Russian and Turkish interests, without registering as such.

      Needs FBI Surveillance and warrants to explore in depth his every waking activity since Commissioning as a US military officer.

  4. Trump and his fanatics don’t live in reality and need to be level checked before this becomes the next pandemic.

    1. The next pandemic .. ok bud as if you needed another reason to mask up and stay in your moms basement and watch tv. Lmfao you guys are pathetic

  5. Flynn needs to lose his military pension, Social Security benefits and ANY other USA provided retirement funds.

    1. @The Homeless Travel Network Airways the joint chiefs spoken on this in the wake of 1/6. They are not known to change their minds.

    2. Yeah Biden is the greatest smartest pres ever unbelievable how many votes we cast for hi. We have nothing to hide so let’s audit the Whole Country to show Biden is so eloquently showing how he is most excellent ! That real insurrection wasn’t cuz there is 150% of counties counting as 100%were registered! Or no one was caught in Georgia on camera pulling out a suitcase full of balloons on camera it was a figment of our imagination ! Or the counties where dead people voted or how those votes came in before they were even mailed to the lkstofgices. Or the ones that people were ghost how also have ghost houses it’s all liese’.. Let’s just prove once and for all that were so Smart and won by 81.4 million votes as Orange man bad got 12 million more than 2016! We will easily show that no fraud and we got nothing to hide! We break into businesses and start fires and mob around with our masks on and we are so c!ever! We will show those American Patriots that we are winners. Yep! Audit here audits there audits audits everywhere q coming to a city near you! Let’s Go and prove we will show those American people who is boss. Even if we try again to do that we don’t care! If even they come out strapped to protect those businesses we got god from the underworld to look out he too is muzz!ed as he sees those Godly angels coming so we want audits in every city in America

    3. I totally agree! It’s a shame that people have more loyalty to a man than to a country! Shame on him!

  6. Hey Flynn, the internet never forgets. You were a general , but now you will forever be marked a TRAITOR. History will not be kind.

    1. And that, sir, is a General’s greatest fear. He has literally spent his whole life in the military. If you take it away, he will literally be nothing.

    2. @janet shew TX textbooks just making sure there is another generation of ignorant, gullible fools who vote out of fear & against their own interests.

    3. @Eric Willis I believe the comparison is pretty darn close hoss. Kinda like when Texas told Mexico to hug a nut.

    4. @Randy Rhyne And these Domestic Terrorist/Capitol Insurrectionists are considered TRAITORS by the majority of Americans. After all, it’s our country they’re trying to take down and change into a Right Wing Dictatorship.

    1. All the Americans who gave their lives fighting against the tyranny and fascism of the Nazis and the Reich are rolling in their graves right now, no doubt.

  7. ON the day we remember who fought and died for the United States of America, You call to destroy USA.

    1. Excuse me Sir/Madam
      Are you saved?
      If you died tonight are you going to heaven?
      Jesus loves you

    2. @Gags Double J Right. As long as you go to church it’s fine to call for a civil war and the death and imprisonment of your neighbours. You should be a lot more worried about your own soul. Hypocrites aren’t “saved” friend. You have to actually follow the teachings of Christ with action and word, not just show up for the juice and cookies.

    3. Calvin Bright
      The Bible is a historical fact
      Trust Lord Jesus, and your house will be saved
      You are a person born to be loved
      Life is very short and there is no time for fussing and fighting with my friend
      Did you know about Earth when you were in your mum’s womb?
      John 3:16
      Jesus loves everyone even Jesus loves your enemies
      Sid Roth’s watch YouTube

    4. @Gags Double J The Pentateuch was written in Babylon to give Hebrews a national story to stand behind. Many of the documents are just documents that were written up for some business. You would have to understand the original Hebrew context to claim the bible is absolutely correct. The bible was brought together at the council of Nicaea. The just added the set of books that fit together the best. Are you going to include the Catholic Bible in this? They have the Apocrypha added.

  8. “The backlash is real. Flynn faces cRitiCiSm” 

    Maybe if he faced more than criticism this wouldn’t keep happening.

    1. Maybe if there were some consequences for lying to the fbi… i guess he learned that he can do and say whatever he wants.

    2. @Joshua Sweetvale
      Sorry, I gave a thumbs down because I really Hope you’re wrong. I replied because you might be right.

    1. It’s more than just stupid and asinine twaddle. It’s getting dangerous now, and the threat against democracy is real.

    2. Remember : Flynn was the man who suggested Trump to declare martial law in the last weeks of his term. Doesn’t that tell you how dangerous he is?

  9. Must be arrested for our safety
    (Law abiding citizens are powerless against these radical violent SEDITIONISTS!

  10. The fact he miss pronounced Myanmar tells you everything you need to know about the idiots we’re dealing with.

  11. Criticisms isn’t getting it done. Strip him of his retirement benefits and try him for sedition. Period.

    1. These forensic audits of the 2020 BALLOTS are so bad the Democrats are going to need to COPE with the FACT brave military will probably have to remove Joe Biden from the White House.

    2. @The Homeless Travel Network Airways so why don’t you join the military, as I did, then understand that what you’re saying is absolute nonsense.

    3. ~MSNBC is Satan’s propaganda machine. The Peacock is Satan’s symbol.
      Satan is known as the Peacock Angel Melek Taus/Shamash/Utu.
      The castrated Crown Prince of Allah/Nanna Sin.

  12. These people are nuts. They are not for democracy. They are for holding onto power at all costs.

    1. Trump was a known corrupt conman before he ran for the presidency. He switched parties from Democrat to Republican because he couldn’t get his foot in the door to even run for office. The Republicans not only opened the door they chose him as their nominee. He knew they were already corrupt and they stuck together to gain power. Old crooks and bold crooks.
