Why did the DOJ reverse course & recommend 6 months in prison for Michael Flynn?— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) January 7, 2020
Because he fought back against the Deep State
This is how they silence his defense & protect themselves
General Flynn is a patriot
He deserves an immediate pardon in the face of this decision
