Retired US Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson says Michael Flynn should be recalled to active duty so he can be court-martialed.
The former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell shared his thoughts on Flynn’s wild suggestion that Trump declare martial law to reverse a free and fair election. In response to what he calls Flynn’s “incitement to insurrection,” Col. Wilkerson told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes last night, “He needs to be rebuked. He needs to be reprimanded. And it needs to be done officially.”
In my view he’s a disgrace to his uniform
The retired Colonel believes Flynn is now showing his true colors despite a career that was once viewed as exemplary, “Otherwise I’ve got to pronounce him a psychotic, or worse.”
Michael Flynn received a pardon from Trump the day before Thanksgiving after Flynn pled guilty — twice — to lying to the FBI in the Russia inquiry. (He also worked lobbying for Turkish interests while simultaneously advising the Trump campaign.) Now that Flynn has got off scot-free for these offenses, he is encouraging the president to send in the troops and force voters in swing states to vote again, “at gunpoint,” characterized Hayes.
