To stop the presidential transition, the former national security advisor General Flynn asked Trump to use the military.
Despite losing the legal battle in the US Supreme Court, the Trump administration still does not concede Biden’s victory. In an interview with Newsmax on Thursday, December 17, Flynn said he thinks Trump should use the military to stop Biden. No such thing had ever happened in US history. In these circumstances, if Trump decides to impose martial law, it will worsen the situation.
Michael Flynn was accused of lying to the FBI during the Russian investigation and was thus removed from a national security advisor’s status. Trump pardoned Flynn a few months ago, and they both seem to be on good terms now.
Flynn said the nation could not move forward if they accept the result of a flawed election. He also added that Trump has the authority to rerun the election after imposing martial law in all the swing states. Flynn gave reference to the conspiracy theory that suggests that voting machines flipped during elections.
Flynn said imposing martial law is not impossible or unusual, the nation has witnessed Martial law 64 times in US history, and it would be no wrong if Trump also institutes martial law.
He added that the US has a strong constitutional process, and it has to be followed at every cost.However, according to experts, Flynn has given a flawed statement, and no president had ever imposed martial law to rerun an election in the US.
Trump and his team had done everything they could do to reverse the election results.
Despite several protests, thousands of fraud voters claims, legal battles, and many controversial tweets, the electoral college confirmed Biden as the upcoming president on Monday, December 14.Michael Flynn is among the most prominent voices backing Trump for his election scam claims.
Flynn was accused of having secret contact with Russia’s former ambassador.The case against him was dismissed on December 8 after Trump pardoned him.
He first suggested the idea of martial law on December 1, and military experts strongly condemned it.As no proofs of election fraud are provided by Trump, forcing a martial law will violate the civil governing mechanism.
