Traitor General Flynn should lose all his pension and benefits we provide him.

New Yorkers just voted to do that to crooked politicians. Our country should do the same. Not that it will mean much with all he has taken from our enemies. He disgraced any person that served under him. Almost every person killed in our wars have been killed by Russian weapons. Ak-47s, rockets, artillery, grenades, you name it Russia provided it to kill our service members. Trumps good buddies.......

The pension was earned legally and it is his to keep. His crimes don't affect this. The law i s very clear on this.

which highlighted his 33 years in the military "5 years of combat duty" . He rejects all accusations of treason.

Can't stand his ass. Hopefully, Trump gets booted out before pardoning this treasonous piece of shit.

Retired servicememebrs are still subject to the UCMJ as long as they are receiving retirement pay.

He can therefore still be Court Martialed for his offenses under the UCMJ. And and plea deal made by Mueller doesnt have to be followed by military authorities.

All it takes is a new Commander in Chief to order the Pentagon to go after him.
