For a little background…
Here’s video of Michael Flynn leading a chant to “lock her up!”

Yes, Michael Flynn, who Obama warned Trump not to hire, who Trump hired anyhow as his National Security Adviser, who was about as close to Candidate and later President Trump as anyone, has been charged with lying to the FBI – a felony – with regard to the Trump/Russia investigation.

And in light of Trump’s recent freakout over not automatically being Time Magazine’s Man of the Year, this is pretty ironic…
Michael Flynn once led a "lock her up" chant at the Republican convention. Now he's charged with lying to the FBI https://t.co/oO1tXUpv4n

Yup, it’s like this…
I was supposed to do some after work training at home….But then breaking news happened that Michael Flynn is charged with lying and he started Lock Her Up……and #MAGA Trump supporters are still saying that as they cry that she isn't.

And then it all just broke loose!
United States Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn has disgraced the Military and all who serve by lying to the FBI. He was more loyal to the Turkish Govt than to our own. The man who led the charge “LOCK HER UP” is about to be locked up.

KAINE asked about Flynn saying “Lock her up!” about former running-mate @HillaryClinton: “He would not give the benefit of a fair legal process to anybody else but he gets the benefit of fair legal process.”

Area man who chanted “Lock Her Up” currently locked up

The Man who Chanted "Lock Her Up" obsessively at rallies for Donald Trump is now officially charged with a federal crime.
What makes this even better is that Michael Flynn was ONLY charged with one crime, meaning he has likely Flipped on Trump & Pence.
Trump Must be FURIOUS!!

Somewhere, Hillary Clinton, reads the news about Michael "Lock Her Up!" Flynn admitting to being a criminal, blows on her tea to cool it, and allows her smirk to segue into an uproarious laugh. pic.twitter.com/yijoXharBz

One guy even went to the courthouse where Flynn was pleading guilty to make the point in person…
Wiseacre at the US courthouse in DC, where (ret) Lt Gen Michael Flynn is pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. Flynn famously shouted “lock her up” chants about Hillary Clinton at RNC. pic.twitter.com/HEa5ws1Hv4

A lawyer pointed out that this means Flynn can never vote again, and reminded us all about “but her emails”…
@mflynnJR But Dad, Her Emails! You said “Lock her up”! I don’t understand, Dad. You’re a convicted felon? You can never vote again? But Dad! LOCK HIM UP!!!
