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.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
