Trump Pardons Flynn… It’s a Good Start!

By Ron Paul | November 30, 2020

Last week President Trump granted a “full pardon” to Gen. Michael Flynn, his first National Security Advisor. In a White House statement announcing the pardon, the Administration pointed out that the relentless pursuit of Flynn was a partisan effort to overturn the results of the 2016 election.

The pursuit of Flynn was spearheaded by people who refused to accept the results of the 2016 election and worked to undermine the peaceful transfer of power, said the White House. These same people are the ones accusing Trump of undermining the election by challenging what appears to be serious voting irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.

That is called “projection.”

The White House statement also cites partisans in politics, the media, and the Deep State which sought to prevent Trump from being elected, to prevent him from taking office once elected, and to remove him on false pretenses once in office.

In order to push the false narrative that Trump was somehow elected due to the intervention of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the coup-masters had to make it appear that a high-ranking official was involved in monkey business with the Russians. Flynn was the unlucky victim of their smear machine, accused of “Russia collusion” over an innocent telephone call with the then-Russian Ambassador in Washington during the transition to a Trump Administration.

Yet when Joe Biden’s transition people bragged recently that Biden was connecting with foreign officials before inaugurated, the media praised it as a welcome return of the “experts” to foreign policy.

While it is very good news that President Trump is in the mood to pardon those victims of the warmongering Deep State, I very much hope that he is only warming up. It would be a great tragedy if other Deep State victims are left to suffer for their non-crimes.

Tweeting about her legislation that calls for charges against Edward Snowden and Julian Assange to be dropped and the Espionage Act reformed, US Rep. Tulsi Gabbard told President Trump, “since you’re giving pardons to people, please consider pardoning those who, at great personal sacrifice, exposed the deception and criminality of those in the deep state.”

My good friend Rep. Thomas Massie, a Ron Paul Institute Board Member, is a co-sponsor of Rep. Gabbard’s legislation, making it a real bipartisan effort to restore the rule of law in the United States and to rein in the Beltway warmongers.

Edward Snowden and Julian Assange are not criminals. They are heroes for telling us the truth about what criminals in government were doing in our name and with our money.

The fact is we were lied into war over and over again. While those wars were profitable for the military-industrial-Congressional-media complex, they snuffed out the lives of hundreds of thousands of innocent people overseas and robbed our own children and grandchildren of trillions of dollars wasted on neocon lies. And meanwhile, as Ed Snowden showed us, the intelligence community declared us the enemy and set up an elaborate internal spy network that would make the East German Stasi green with envy.

President Trump: you have the incredible opportunity to right the terrible wrongs perpetrated by the Obama/Biden Administration. History will smile kindly upon you if you also grant full pardon to Julian Assange and Edward Snowden – and any other truth-teller who faces persecution for exposing the Deep State warmongers.

  1. “..what appears to be serious voting irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.” That “appears” appears to be a SERIOUS limitation on the SERIOUSNESS of the/any allegation of IRREGULARIT(IES). Any proof/evidence, Representative Paul? Since I have no brief whatsoever for Biden/the Dem half of the duopoly, I’d really like to see some.

    • The irregularities are so abundant that they no longer require citation in reference.

      The list is vast and growing:

    • Note: After in-depth reading of the full RP article and pondering it a bit, my take is that Teenage BullyBoy Trump, had he the maturity and smarts to listen to real American patriots and act responsibly on his MAGA pretensions, could have wiped out the extant “Deep State” and instituted a State that was “by, for, and of the people” of the once-storied experiment in democratic/society-betterment government. But instead, he listened to billionaire zealots like Sheldon Adelson, bizarre “Christian” fundamentalists and zealot riffraff…and reacted as one might only have expected — by imposing the full dominance of another, monolithic Deep State that is the ultimate Bully: militant/political/psychotic Zionism and its choke-holding entanglement of my US.

      • could have wiped out the extant “Deep State”

        That sounds like a tall order for one person regardless of their level of authority. It was up to us to pave the way, but instead we had Russia, Russia, Russia coming from across the political spectrum. Four years of inane allegations with an asinine impeachment proceeding to top it off.

        Now we have a looming illegitimate regime that will attempt to actuate “the great reset” decimation of humanity. It is guaranteed to blow up no matter what.

        • Thanks, but: I don’t have the mentation to read that wordy analysis, but my scan picked up on two three-word groups:
          “…cause for concern.” That is mealy-mouthed pap. Not good enough. And who’s going to act on the “concern”? Will the author or his/her institution clang the proper alarms and trigger action by a competent authority to run with the “cause for concern”?
          “…merit further investigation.” Sounds like academic claptrap to me. Who’s going to undertake the “further investigation”?–Trump’s team headed by the awful Giulani, and the courts, don’t seem inclined to orchestrate intelligible case(s) or demand action/investigation.

          I fully agree with “Russis, Russia, Russia….” Again, though: someone with smarts and guts should have stepped up.

  2. “History will smile kindly upon you if you also grant full pardon to Julian Assange and Edward Snowden – and any other truth-teller who faces persecution for exposing the Deep State warmongers”.

    If Trump did pardon Assange and Snowden, it would be like he signed his own death warrant. The “Deep State/MIC/CIA” would ‘eliminate’ Trump, Assange, and Snowden, as a warning to anyone else who wants to expose the criminals behind the USA Government.
    The fact that Snowden had to seek political asylum in Russia shows just how rotten things are ‘at the top’ in the USA.
