Please Enjoy This Clip of Michael Flynn Leading a “Lock Her Up” Chant

He was just charged with lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian officials.

Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser for President Donald Trump, is expected to plead guilty on Friday to lying to federal investigators about his interactions with a Russian official after the 2016 election. 

Flynn’s confession to having committed a federal crime comes with a special degree of irony, as he was one of the most prominent Trump supporters to lead a “lock her up” chant calling for Hillary Clinton’s imprisonment. “If I did a tenth of what she did, I would be in jail today,” he declared at the Republican National Convention in July 2016.

Clinton has never been charged with a federal crime. Here are five times Flynn accused her deceiving the public and leading a chant to “lock her up.”

Oh, Dear: Flynn on Clinton

Please enjoy this horrifying mash-up of Michael Flynn accusing Hillary Clinton of deceit.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
