Disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has kept quiet since copping a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in December. If criminals thought that meant they could get away with things because the smartest detective in the world was sidelined, bad news: although Flynn is down, the Flynn family is not out. Michael Flynn Jr. is out every day on the mean streets of Twitter, cracking cases, solving crimes, and shedding light on corruption.

Not all heroes wear capes. 

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
