Retired U.S. Army lieutenant general Michael Flynn is warning that the witch hunt against Donald Trump and anyone who dared to support him is never going to stop.
During an interview on Flash Point, Flynn said liberals are “working overtime to dismantle” the U.S. Constitution and want to transition America from a constitutional republic as designed by the Founding Fathers and into a nation overtaken by socialism.
“The hard left in our country is working overtime to dismantle our Constitution and our constitutional republic. Everybody needs to understand that.
“…This is a very, very serious time. We are facing a transition in our country — transitioning from one path, which is a continuation of this experiment in democracy via our constitutional republic process and our Constitution and our freedoms and everything that comes with that — the sacrifices that come with that.
“And the other path is this path towards socialism, Marxism, communism. They like to use cool words like progressivism and liberalism, but really amounts to socialist state and state-controlled.
“…That’s really the two paths that we are on. It is a massive, major transition point in the United States of America.”
Flynn also warned people not to trust any politician who is already considering running in the 2024 election.

Flynn knows firsthand about witch-hunts never-ending.
The U.S. Army is targeting Flynn over the phony “emoluments” clause.
The U.S. Department of Defense’s internal watchdog has concluded a long-delayed investigation into Flynn and sent its findings to the Army in a case that could bring tens of thousands of dollars in financial penalties for Flynn.
The investigation focuses on Flynn’s acceptance of money from Russian and Turkish interests before joining the Trump administration, a potential violation of the Constitution’s emoluments clause.
With few exceptions, U.S. officials, including retired service members like Flynn, are prohibited from accepting money or gifts from foreign governments. Flynn retired from the Army as a three-star general in 2014.
The inspector general’s investigation, opened in April 2017, was put on hold for more than three years amid a broader scandal that included a criminal investigation of Flynn by the Justice Department — part of what would become the investigation of Trump’s first presidential campaign and Russian interference in the 2016 election led by former FBI director Robert S. Mueller III.
“On January 27, 2021, we closed our investigation against LTG Flynn and forwarded several administrative matters to the Acting Secretary of the Army for review and appropriate action,” Allen’s statement said.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed a similar case against Donald Trump because “he was no longer in office.”
All of the cases brought by Democrats were dismissed by the Supreme Court.
In the case involving Flynn, he was no longer a general when he worked with a foreign government.
But the U.S. Army still wants to get him on the “emoluments” clause?
Of course, the government won’t investigate how Flynn was mistreated and smeared by the intelligence community for years.
