Flynn in 2016: ‘If I did a tenth of what Hillary did, I’d be in jail’

In the wake of Michael Flynn‘s resignation as President Trump‘s National Security Advisor, many on social media are pointing to Flynn’s past comments about Hillary Clinton.

Getting the most attention is his July 2016 speech at the Republican National Convention, where Flynn joined the crowd in chanting ‘Lock her up!’ Flynn, like then-candidate Trump, repeatedly slammed Clinton for being a threat to national security due to her use of a private email server.

As the crowd chanted, Flynn said, “If I did a tenth of what she did, I would be in jail today.” Never mind the fact that the FBI concluded that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring a case against Clinton regarding her email habits.

Fast-forward to February of 2017, and Flynn and the Trump administration are embroiled in what Dan Rather called a scandal “at least as big as Watergate.” According to the Washington Post and New York Times, Flynn had assured Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak that sanctions imposed on Russia by then-President Obama would be lifted by Trump — a conversation that may have put Flynn in violation of the Logan Act.
