Michael Flynn Calls for Trump to Execute Military Coup

Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, is calling for the president to orchestrate a military coup to hold onto power despite losing the election. Flynn endorsed a call on Twitter from the We The People Convention arguing that Trump should invoke martial law and hold a new election. Martial law is when the military takes control of functions normally handled by civilian government. Typically this is done for emergencies or for really extenuating circumstances, not something like an incumbent president losing reelection. Flynn was pardoned by Trump last week over charges related to Robert Mueller’s investigation into contacts between Russia and Trump’s 2016 campaign.

What Michael Flynn is doing by endorsing a coup, is sedition — at least colloquially speaking. Sedition is defined as “conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.” This call is especially absurd coming from Flynn, who is a retired US Army lieutenant general. Members of the military take an oath to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” But in this instance, Flynn doesn’t care about that. He, like many Trumpists, will continue to put their dear leader before the country.
