So said Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn President TrumpDonald Trump Jill Biden: PhD is one of the things I’m ‘most proud of’ Azar tells health department staff his wife has COVID-19: ‘Mild symptoms, but otherwise fine’ Michigan recovers from pandemic-related moratorium on water closures MORE could deploy the military to “repeat” the 2020 elections.
During a performance on NewsmaxIn “Greg Kelly Reports,” Flynn was asked about what actions the president could take to reverse the election results.
After suggesting that the president could seize any voting machine across the country, Flynn suggested deploying the military in swing states the president lost to President-elect Biden.
“He could, if he wanted, order within the swing states that he could use military capabilities and, in effect, repeat an election in those states,” Flynn said.
Flynn added that the use of the military is “not unprecedented”, saying people are talking about it “like it’s something we’ve never done,” but he also said he “wasn’t calling for that.”
“Martial law has been instituted 64 times,” he said. So I’m not calling for that. We have a constitutional process and it must be followed. “
Here’s Michael Flynn on Newsmax saying Trump could order “military capabilities” to swing states and “repeat an election in each of those states.”

The comments come as the president and his allies continue to argue that Trump won the election and allege widespread voter fraud. In numerous legal proceedings, lawyers for the president and his campaign have failed to provide any evidence of these claims.
During a “Stop the Steal” rally last Saturday, Flynn expressed support for the president who continues to contest the 2020 election results, despite losing the vast majority of his election challenges.
“In this melting pot of our time, we must pray that truth triumphs over lies, justice triumphs over abuse and fraud, honesty triumphs over corruption,” Flynn said. “Our holy honor triumphs over shame.”
Meanwhile, the Electoral College declared Biden on Monday as the winner of the 2020 elections.
