On Nov. 21, 2016, Lt. General Michael Flynn, appointed by President Trump as national security advisor, spoke at Ripon College.

Included in his remarks was career advise to students. He stressed three traits that were very important for success: credibility, integrity and rule of law. I was so impressed that I made a point to remember them.

Now four years later he supports a president who has failed on all three accounts seemingly without remorse. He openly has offered his advice and support for overturning the election to the president.

Credibility, integrity and rule of law?

How sad and disappointing ... Walk The Talk

The letter submitted is exactly right. Both Flynn and Trump along with many politicians are good at talking and preaching yet follow none of the advice they love to dole out for us. Its sick and sad. When someone admits to lying in their testimony there should be no parson possible. Flynn should man up and do the tine he rightfully deserves. Same with Roger Stone and Paul Manafort to name a few. They committed crimes and all the time constantly knowing they'd get an undeservedly pardon. Pathetic and shameful

Just one of many law breakers in the Trump administration.
