Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s memo on former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn left members of the so-called “resistance” disappointed that the retired three star Army general would likely not face any jail time, and no collusion was detailed.
Leading up to its release, resisters were giddy over the idea the man who led a “Lock her up!” chant on the campaign trail would find himself behind bars. Mueller’s memo instead praised him for his substantial cooperation and “exemplary” service in uniform, leaving some angry.
I cannot express how disappointed I am that #Flynn is not going to prison.

Many Democrats took to Twitter to convey their unfulfilled vengeance towards Flynn, who was once appointed by former President Barack Obama to lead the Defense Intelligence Agency.
Perhaps it is because I have spent so much of my life studying national security advisors, but I can't minimize my contempt for Mike Flynn nor my outrage at his behavior–regardless of his cooperation with Mueller.
