Terrorists get sent to Gitmo.

There was a time when traitors' heads were stuck on pikes in the town square as a warning to others.

Propose using the Washington Mall.  Lots of space.  Failing that, along the perimeter fence outside the White House.

Imperious Rex!: Why is this bastard still walking free


And still getting a paid military retirement courtesy of the country he tired to overthrow.
You gotta think that goes against some kind of oath he took?

I'm up for changing that one... followed by the seditionists experiencing some drops, with sudden stops, if they are convicted.

I'd vote to confirm you as AG. Move over Merrick, we got someone who gets it.

Hey, he needs that military retirement! Do you know how little of the promised amount Russia has actually paid? Jeebus, he might as well expect to get money he's owed by trump!

That's revisionist history.

Leftists and liberals were the ones targeted by HUAC. Any media reporting negative about the proceedings prior to McCarthy being humilated by the US Army was retaliated against.
 
2022-06-28 2:45:55 PM  
Wouldn't the correct answer be most of the time. We've had two plus centuries of peaceful transfer but we had to win a war against our previous government to get here.

Please forgive Flynn here.  He didn't know how to answer because his bosses in Turkey and Russia weren't answering the phone at the time.

The Reverend Sam Hill: People called before the House Committing Un-American Activities would plead the Fifth, and the Liberal Media® would insinuate that they were Communists.


Yes, because these two things, the hearings about the Un-American Activities, and these hearings investigating an insurrection which attempted to prevent the peaceful transfer of power after a free and fair election are TOTLAY similar, I mean if you are a moron.

Russia would never try to undermine our democracy....

IIRC, once you waive the 5th by answering a question, you can't invoke it later. But that could be my goofy memory.
 
2022-06-28 2:50:49 PM  
Flynn and Eastman should hang, prison for everyone else.
 
2022-06-28 2:50:51 PM  
How and why would you plead the 5th on that question? Even if the honest answer in "no," how guilty is your conscience that you're worried if you say "yes" they'll be able to prove it was a lie?

Or rather, how paranoid are you that they might have everything on tape?

Easily remedied... budget friendly, too!

The person is a walking example of conduct unbecoming. He should be making tiny pebbles from granite boulders in Kansas.

I am no law talking guy but I am pretty sure you can plead the 5th selectively to only questions you choose to. Otherwise why continue asking questions?

FTFY.

Mike Flynn is a treasonous scumbag and treason, insurrection and sedition should never be pardonable offenses.

Imperious Rex!: Why is this bastard still walking free


A combination of friends in high places, and a fear that high profile arrests will be seen as political and lead to retaliation.

Two problems with this mindset: if retaliation is even on the table things are WAY off the rails already, and they think that maybe trying to be diplomatic will work because they already forgot Trump tried to have Pence killed, these dudes aren't going to stop because you tried to play nice.

That's more a guidelines for dealing with police thing than a given sworn testimony thing.

How could you possibly justify to yourself pleading the fifth on that softball.  Hey Flynn, if I murdered a hundred people and was asked if I believed murder should be illegal, I would answer YES.

probably have a recording of him specifically saying he doesn't believe in a peaceful transition of power if he answered like that. perjury is still on the table for this stuff right?

Should be enough testimony for the US Army to revoke his rank and pension for conduct unbecoming of an officer. JFC.
 
2022-06-28 3:02:34 PM  
The fact that he has not already been shot or hung or at LEAST put in prison for life speaks ill of this country. This guy is a farking traitor rat.

In honor of ALL CAPS DAY:

Hear ye, hear ye! How dare ye
Go up against the king who do his thing tri-yearly?
They're too carefree with their mouths around here
Off with his head, and display it at Town Square
On top a seven-feet spike, make sure it's on tight
In light of when the peasants throw stones with all their might
Skull get smashed for weeks
'Til vulture beaks eats the last meat off your cheeks
Maybe then they'll know the right words to speak
Out loud, at home, in the world, or in the streets
It's no escape, just in case
All the kings' mens and 'em decides to go apes
The most slick-talking of burly guys
Get caught and boiled in oil like curly fries
