Former safety advisor to President Donald Trump, Michael Flynn, was a featured speaker on the ReAwaken America convention held in San Antonio this weekend. What Flynn proposed as a unifier for a divided nation in 2021 sparked on-line shops and critics to assault his alternative of phrases.
“If we are going to have one nation under God, which we must, we have to have one religion,” Flynn mentioned. “One nation under God and one religion under God.”
The feedback add to the current consideration Flynn has caught for being subpoenaed in an investigation of the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.
According to Bloomberg, Flynn was accused of becoming a member of conferences on the White House “during which participants discussed seizing voting machines, declaring a national emergency, invoking certain national security emergency powers, and continuing to spread the false message that the November 2020 election had been tainted by widespread fraud.”
The House committee’s indictments focused Flynn and different Trump associates, together with Steve Bannon. Flynn has been a defendent of Bannon, in what he calls vital overreach from Dems through the indictments.
“This is the crucifixion of our First Amendment freedom to speak, freedom to peacefully assemble. It’s unbelievable,” Flynn added on the convention.
Mississippi Democrat Bennie Thompson summarized the committee’s goal with concentrating on the Republican figures.
“The Select Committee needs to know every detail about their efforts to overturn the election, including who they were talking to in the White House and in Congress, what connections they had with rallies that escalated into a riot, and who paid for it all.”
Reuters reported again in August that the FBI’s full investigation of Jan. 6 led to “scant evidence” of it being an precise riot.
