    team. Yes its wiki but follow the links. Even a pic of him having lunch with Putin after being forced out of the Obama
    Administration. He just might of became a spy. He also gave a paid report while there. Telling our inside
    secrets. He was the one who started the Chants "Lock her up, Lock her up." at the rallies.


    In retirement, Flynn was described by the Washington Post as "not hostile to Russia,"[21] while Michael Crowley of Vox described Flynn as having "an odd affection for Russia and its authoritarian government."[22]

    After retiring from service with the U.S. government, Flynn began appearing semi-regularly as an analyst on RT, a Russian owned English-language news outlet.[21][22][23] In 2015, Flynn attended a gala dinner in Moscow in honor of RT, where he was seated next to the Russian president Vladimir Putin.[23] Before attending the event, Flynn gave a paid talk on world affairs to a group; Flynn defended the Russian payment in an interview with Michael Isikoff.[23][24] Journalist Michael Crowley of Politico reported that "At a moment of semi-hostility between the U.S. and Russia, the presence of such an important figure at Putin's table startled" U.S. officials.[23]

    Having already been consulted regarding national security by candidates Carly Fiorina, Scott Walker, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, and Donald Trump,[25] Flynn was asked in February 2016 to serve as an adviser to the Trump campaign.[26] In July 2016, it was reported he was being considered as Trump's running mate; Flynn later confirmed that he had submitted vetting documents to the campaign and was willing to accept the Republican vice-presidential nomination if chosen.[27][28]

    As one of the keynote speakers during the first night of the 2016 Republican National Convention Flynn gave what the Los Angeles Times described as a "fiery" speech, in which he stated: "We are tired of Obama's empty speeches and his misguided rhetoric. This, this has caused the world to have no respect for America's word, nor does it fear our might."[29] Flynn went on to critically address political correctness and joined the crowd in a chant of "U-S-A! U-S-A!". During the chants he told those in the audience, "Get fired up! This is about our country."[29][30] During the speech, Flynn also joined chants of "Lock her up!", referring to the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, and stated that she should quit the presidential race.[31][32] He repeated in subsequent interviews that she should be "locked up".[33] While campaigning for Trump, Flynn also referred to Clinton as the "enemy camp".[31]

    Flynn was once opposed to waterboarding and other extreme interrogation techniques that have now been banned; however, according to an August 2016 Washington Post article, he said at one point, in the context of Trump's apparent openness to reinstating such techniques, that "he would be reluctant to take options off the table."[31] In May 2016, Flynn was asked by an Al Jazeera reporter if he would support Trump's stated plan to kill the families of suspected terrorists. In response, Flynn stated, "I would have to see the circumstances of that situation".[31]

    He just 'might' have?


    he gave a paid 'report'?

    Like Hillary and Bill have been doing for the last 16 years?
    Building up their bank accounts and Foundation funds?

    Did THEY tell 'inside' secrets?

    No he is pro Russian. Do you read at all or just hate Clinton so much you have a one track mind. You hatred for the Clintons is unfounded. Clinton Cash book is trash, and those email leaks, which really said nothing, was done by Trump and his Russian ties. Robert Mercer and Flynn come to mind, both have the ability.
    We should not allow this hacking of private info of government issues by another country.

    I read your cut and paste.

    and I'm surprised that Wikipedia, even with their low standards, would use the supposition, innuendo, and guesswork that appeared in your post.

    "He just might of became a spy."?

    "He also gave a paid report while there."
    People that give speeches generally get paid for them. Look at the Clintons, and the next few years of the Obamas

    "Telling our inside secrets"
    and he wasn't arrested the minute he stepped back on American soil?

    Far too many hmmms in your post

    Another hit job by the left, just what Americans showed they are sick of, by voting in Trump. Trying to destroy someone through false accusations, just more of the norm from the left.

    The Washington Post featured a study by Feng Zhu of the USC Marshall School and a colleague finding that, despite crowdsourced editing, Wikipedia's political entries are still highly biased.

    Well, duh. Reality does have that liberal bias. That's not the fault of reality.
