Under Article 2 of the UCMJ, the Army maintains court-martial jurisdiction over retired personnel. Army Regulation 27-10, Military Justice, states “Retired members of a regular component of the Armed Forces who are entitled to pay are subject to the provisions of the UCMJ.

So the FBI can lie to you and not be punished but if you lie to the FBI then you go to jail. Something is wrong here.

SSG Rob Lawrence - When they come to talk with you, you lawyer up. That is, unless you (Flynn) think you are above the law or smarter than the FBI...

This is an example of why our government makes rulings and judgements tailored just for the polictal funkeys.

Yes. They can. If you want to know why, then go to a university law school library and look up the Rules of Federal Court, wherein you can find out about persons with status in Federal Court who are immune to conviction, that is if a judge does not want to over rule that law, which is their privilege according to how they perceive the exigencies of the situation.

I say leave his military pension alone if his infractions did not occur in service to the military. They are unrelated.

Wrong! Felonies are the most serious crimes. Misdemeanors are not as bad. He loses his benefits for felonies.

MAJ (Join to see) - The pain never stops, the foundation of my military basic training--no pain, no gain. But why should I be sympathetic he can felonize against people unrestrained? No.

I'm of the opinion that Gen. Flynn should not be punished twice for the same offense.

SGT Steven Wade - You do realize Trump appointed more federal judges than the last 2 presidents combined.

Flynn was not punished at all. He received a pardon and this relieved him of any penalty.

SSG Jeffrey Monk If you are in the military, you are NEVER just a civilian. When I was in the military, I was constantly told I was a soldier 24/7. So if you are still obligated by your enlistment, even when you are off duty, you are still consider in the military. Therefor, you can receive punishment under the UCMJ as well as civilian punishment. Just as you can receive both federal and state charges at the same time.

Being in the military does not mean you can commit felonies with impunity. If you felon somebody and are convicted, then you lose your military benefits. So be on your good behavior at all times. besides misdemeanors do not make you lose your benefits so you do not have to be perfect, but if you try to go for a sate of mind defense, then you might be judged for incompetence, and then you don't have any civil rights.
