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.

The entire case is bovine scatology. Flynn talked to the Russian foreign minister as the incoming national security advisor. He was set up by the FBI director, assistant attorney general and it appears others as well. What has come out from this case in an absolute miscarriage of justice by those who are supposed to treat fairly those accused. His lawyers failed to provide exculpatory information that would clear him, the FBI agents (strozk and pientka) went out of there way to see if they could get him fired or charged. The FBI and doj withheld exculpatory information, including the transcript of the call with kislyak that showed he did not talk sanctions. His so called lie was that he could not remember if he did or didn't. Even his deputy confirms this (k t McFarland) and she was Set up for a purjery trap by the mueller investigation. The FBI recommended closing the case in early January before he was ever interviewed. So when the court finally drops the case against him, how does he get his reputation back? And do those who violated his constitutional rights get their reputations, financial life, employment etc destroyed like he did?
It never ceases to amaze me that those who destroy others walk free, and their victims lose everything. And why? For a political hit job to take out the NSA so he would not uncover the dirty tricks and attempted coup against the incoming president? Total BS. Judge Sullivan should face what he has put Flynn through. And since he has not been convicted of a crime, he should continue receiving benefits.

It's unbelievable what LG Flynn has endured. He can never be made whole for his financial losses or the severe damage to his reputation. It's apparent to me that he knows too much and someone - or some group - will do anything to destroy his credibility, so when he does finally get the opportunity to testify in federal court about the treasonous activities of certain politicians, no one will believe him. I think President Trump will probably pardon him, but the preferred outcome would be total exoneration. Then I would like to see him sue his tormentors out of their shorts!

SSG Randy Talbot - And remember, the interrogators that got him to "admit" he lied at least partially by threatening to ruin his sons future. I believe that Flynn is totally innocent and was coerced by a political agenda. Since he doesn't worship at the altar of Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, and Obama, he will never get a fair shake. If he was a Democrat he'd be wearing a fourth star by now.

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

Jesus he plead guilty to stop the bleeding. His case WILL be thrown out. And, again, he was incoming NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR - of course he spoke with him! How obtuse are you?

My "birth" to this situation was not General Flynn but friend in another Law enforcement agency that was shanghaied to prison for REPORTING that something was not done right and cost someone their life. To keep from exposing the true criminal and the misconduct of those that were culpable they were sent to prison for three years on a misdemeanor charge and could keep their pension once out and retired IF they did not fight the charges. They took the crooked deal as it was the "lesser of two weevils." Another innocent LE person that was charged for the same "crime" fought it and wound up in prison for many years and no pension upon release. HW tenure as president.
The DOJ, FBI, ATF, etc.. under Obama and his henchmen were/ are the most corrupt in our history and that says something. NOW even the judge in his case, E.G. Sullivan has become a treasonous traitor to the constitution by continuing the sham. We need to correct the judiciary and insist they interpret the laws as charged and not create new ones that fit their liking.

SGT Ray Wachter - He pleaded guilty because he got caught lying to the FBI. If his case hasn't been thrown out by now, doubt it will.

SGT Wachter, you appear to post conflicting commentary. He didn't lie about anything; he was railroaded.

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

MSgt Kerry Lundy - It is double jeopardy. Only a slim technicality says it is not. In reality, he still gets punished twice for the same action. I was stationed at Blytheville AFB, in the 60's. There was joint named The Castaways, in town. The local cops would make rounds through the parking lot hourly. If they noticed a car in the same spot, they would put a chalk mark on the left front tire. On the next round if the car was gone, a call went out to Sgt. Cartwrite. He would be waiting on Air Base Hwy. If and when the car came past, Cartwrite would pull it over and give the driver a DUI ticket. The driver would be fined by civilian court and then face the Commander, get fined again, and it would go on his record.........double whammy! As far as I know, I was the ONLY airman to get a warning from Cartwrite.....I became a legend!

LT (Join to see) you would never be given a DUI charge under federal law, except from Military Police, so therefore wouldn’t be fall under double jeopardy. To charge Flynn under the UCMJ for his federal conviction IS double jeopardy.
