While most people within Trump’s circle in the White House gave either false testimonies or threw Trump under the bus during their January 6th Committee interrogation, General Flynn stood on the constitution.
Previously Trump’s former NSA advisor General Flynn was issued a subpoena to answer questions from the January 6th Committee and when the time came for him to be questioned Flynn exercised his 5th Amendment right.
Rep. Liz Cheney, who is currently the vice-chair of the House select committee asked “do you believe the violence on January 6th was justified?”
Flynn responded, “I take the Fifth”.

Liberals were mad Flynn didn’t turn on Trump-like other members of his Cabinet:
“Liz Cheney asked General Flynn, ‘do you believe in the peaceful transition of power in the United States of America?’ He took the Fifth. To me, one of the worst things was that he did so while wearing an American-flag pin on his lapel.” https://t.co/DiFqSvEl3u

MSNBC shared these details:
hen it comes to understanding what transpired on Jan. 6, there are few potential witnesses more knowledgeable than Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s disgraced former White House national security adviser.
As we’ve discussed, Flynn, for example, attended a December 2020 meeting in the Oval Office in which participants discussed declaring a national emergency as part of a scheme to keep Trump in power despite his defeat. The retired general also reportedly raised the prospect of deploying U.S. troops, seizing voting machines, and declaring martial law as part of an apparent coup attempt.
Yesterday, however, Flynn’s importance grew. Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson testified that Donald Trump instructed Mark Meadows, his then-chief of staff, to contact both Roger Stone and Flynn on Jan. 5, and Meadows followed those instructions.
What did they discuss? For now, only the participants know for sure.
Given all of this, it’s not surprising that Jan. 6 investigators subpoenaed Flynn, but as we learned in March, he refused to cooperate, repeatedly pleading the Fifth.
Go General Flynn. Dish out to them what they continually give us when we ask questions‼️ WOOHOO‼️ TAKE THAT CHENEY‼️ BACK AT CHA DEMONCRATS‼️IT’S ABOUT TIME WE GIVE THEIR CRAP BACK TO THEM‼️ TELL THEM YOU CAN ANSWER BECAUSE IT’S UNDER INVESTIGATION‼️
