Donald Trump’s former security advisor called upon the President of the US to impose martial law.
The shocking news came as a surprise to many, as the ex-security advisor, Michael Flynn, made bold statements on a sensitive issue. According to him, the President shouldn’t take any chances. And that means asking the military to take command for a revote episode.
Meanwhile, he announced on Thursday how the president has the full power of Thursday for overturning the current scenario. This was in reference to the 2020 US elections.
Donald Trump suffered from a major defeat against President-elect Joe Biden. The latter gained the majority in battleground states. And now, the country awaits for Biden’s inauguration, just weeks away.
Till now, Mr. Trump refuses to concede the elections. However, news regarding the president’s exit from the White House remains a mystery. Recently, rumors spread on how the first lady, Melania Trump, is all set to leave. And that meant she ‘just wants to go home.’
Donald Trump’s former security advisor has plans
Michael Flynn specifically mentioned on a news channel how he feels the president needs to take action.
Only then can he expect for an election re-run.Therefore, Flynn’s main target remained those states where the Republicans hoped to strike a major win. Also referred to as the ‘battleground’ states, Flynn feels that a decision like this could run in Trump’s favor.
Just the thought of martial law left the nation confused. As it is, the current elections scenario is full of surprises and bold statements from the president. And something like this would only add more misery to an already stressful outcome.
Do such statements carry weightage?
While Trump’s former security advisor believes so, the actual reality is very different. Experts recently commented on Flynn’s approach. They expressed how his comments don’t coincide with reality.
Today, it doesn’t have the power to make a difference as many feel it’s just too late. Certainly, all the election results are certified. In addition, the idea of martial law doesn’t suspend the US constitution.
Flynn made the bold statements during his recent interview with Newsmax. Many call this channel as a pro-Trump network. Other than that, Flynn also mentioned another bold idea. According to him, the president needs to ‘seize’ all of the nation’s voting machines. Only then can there be a new election.
Michael Flynn- walking down memory lane
Micheal Flynn was the president’s ex-security advisor. Recently, the US president pardoned him. And that was for pleading guilty for counts relating to lies towards the FBI.
“There is no way that we can move forward as a nation,” Flynn boldly remarked. “Trump can immediately and solely seize each machine, upon one order,” he explained.
Flynn made special reference to the idea of the Democrat’s rigging the current elections. By machines, he means all of the voting machines used to cast votes. He mentioned his thoughts on how seamlessly Trump’s votes converted into votes for Joe Biden.
However, he failed to prove such claims. And for that reason, such allegations hold zero to little importance, at this time.
The idea of martial law looms
His former security advisor explained during the interview how martial law wasn’t something out of the question. According to him, it’s an idea that was practiced in the past. In total, he expressed how it was put forward 64 times.
While Michael Flynn’s ideas are not based on reality, it’s interesting to see what others have to say on the matter. Just the mere fact that election experts failed to pay any heed to fraud claims is enough to put such ideas to rest.
