Even before former President Donald Trump appointed him as his national security adviser, Flynn had already earned the ire of the democrats. The three-star general served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) in 2012 under the Obama administration. During his tenure in the DIA, Flynn played a key role in the U.S.'s counterterrorism strategy and the breakup of insurgent networks.
During this time, the general recognized that former president Barack Obama's policy toward Syria was a failure. According to Flynn, the terrorists that the Obama administration opposed were actually the same "moderate democrats" that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) armed and trained to fight against the Moscow-backed leadership of Bashar Assad. Because of this revelation, the Obama administration forced Flynn to retire in 2014. The CIA also launched a campaign to smear his reputation.
When Trump appointed Flynn as a national security adviser in 2017 the deep state quickly moved to get rid of him given his prior knowledge. Former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey deceived Flynn into committing perjury in his ties with Russia and then threatened to charge his son unless the general pleaded guilty. Flynn did so in December 2017, but withdrew his plea in January 2020 saying he was threatened by Comey into filing a guilty plea.
Documents obtained by Flynn's attorney Sidney Powell revealed that the FBI had already concluded that the general was guilty. Furthermore, it was revealed that CIA operative Stefan Halper was responsible for setting the FBI's probe on Flynn in motion. The Department of Justice (DoJ) eventually dropped all charges against Flynn in May 2020, and Trump pardoned him in November of the same year.

In a piece for The Burning Platform, economist and author Paul Craig Roberts said Chase's cancellation of Flynn's credit cards was no loss. He said the general should express relief with no longer being associated with "a collection of gangsters" in response to the bank. "What does Chase Bank's action against Flynn really mean? Nothing reassuring," Roberts said.
Roberts mentioned that Chase and other parties paid $920 million in fines for manipulating both the precious metals and U.S. Treasury markets. The economist also remarked that Chase had to shell out $35.7 billion in fines due to its inability to follow the law – proving it was more of a "reputational risk" than Flynn. "The banks have the justice system rigged so that they only pay fines," Roberts pointed out.
The economist then compared Chase Bank CEO Jamie Dimon and Flynn. Roberts referenced an article by Harvard Law School's Program on Negotiation featuring Dimon's 2013 settlement with the DoJ. The banking firm was initially unable to negotiate a deal with the Justice Department in July and August 2013.
However, Dimon then met with former U.S. Associate Attorney General Tony West and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Chase's settlement amount was then increased to $11 billion in September 2013. The following month, Dimon agreed to pay $13 billion to settle with the DoJ.

Roberts noted that unfortunately, Flynn did not have that amount of money to pay off Comey. He continued: "[The] financial sector has been totally politicized and is part of the deep state's agents used to make it clear to all that anyone who goes against the elite's agendas will be ruined. Flynn's fate tells all players in the system that truth is a career-killer and to stay far away from it."
The economist also warned that Flynn is not the first person to succumb to the deep state's machinations. Roberts said the corporate world also served as an avenue for the elites to implement their secret agendas for the world. He gave the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination as an example of this. President Joe Biden pushed private companies to mandate COVID-19 injections for their employees despite the mandate's illegality and the vaccine's dangers.
"What we are experiencing in the U.S. is the formation of a fascist state in which government and business negate democracy and impose their agendas," Roberts ultimately concluded.
