#1 Those of the usual memory hole institutions forget the number of people who opined that the military should execute a coup against Trump.

True indeed - but Flynn knows better.

#3 As time goes on, Flynn comes off more and more as someone Trump could have well done without.

#4 So he called for a coup to fight the election coup? I don't have any problem with that. Nor would any of our founding fathers. That is exactly what our second amendment is for.

Deal with it.

#7 can't court martial a retired person

notwithstanding this, Flynn, although having served honorably, is a careless fellow

after leaving active duty he became a consultant/lobbyist for foreign countries, e.g. Turkey, without bothering to register as a foreign agent and he didn't resign his consultancy before working in govt again - neither of these are usually prosecuted but they show an oblivious attitude toward what you are supposed to do

#8 He's only wrong in that the current regime is 100% illegitimate. It would not be a "coup" but a restoration of decency. Call it what you want, ZFG when the prize is all the marbles.

#10 1. Gen Flynn is Army not a Marine.

2. Flynn denies saying this. Says audio/video is manipulated.

#11 Forcably removing the government IS treason and anyone participating in it shoul be arreste. Simple as tht. Whether to remove Trump, or remove Biden.

It is an ffront to the Constitution. The only way to permanently remove a sitting presient is to impeach and convict him/her. And doing so does NOT awar the office to the previous presient, it then goes to the Vice President, then the Speaker.

You idiots seem to think that a screwed-up election allows you to blithely just crap all over the Constitution. Like it or not, the processes were followed, and Biden was properly sworn in as affirmed by Congress, in accordance with the Constitution. The process was followed.

The fault here is in the States, and destroying the federal government is NOT the right answer. either that or you are just as bad as the marxists who ignore the Constitutiton and our duty to it when you feel like it.

I call ANYONE here out as a dishonest anti-constitutional traitor if they agree with a coup at this point in time. The day may come, but this isn't it, and your idiocy in promoting such talk just gives aid and comfort to those who would further subvert our government and use YOUR sedition to suppress free speech.

Just STOP IT. those of us who have bled for this nation don't take threats like yours lightly.

#12 Flynn denies saying this. Says audio/video is manipulated.

That is why you *always* should have at least one videographer of you own at such events and lock up the copies.
Ask Sarah Palin about her interview with ABC News.
