FLYNN: Trump Could Send Military to Battleground States and Redo Election
Retired Gen. Michael Flynn laid out some of the options President Trump might have as the controversy builds over the 2020 election.
“He could order the, within the swing states, if he wanted to, he could take military capabilities, and he could place those in states and basically rerun an election in each of those states,” Flynn claimed, all but calling for a military-enabled coup to help Trump hold power.

To be clear, he said it was simply one of several options the president had at his disposal. The president’s former National Security Advisor was not advocating for that specific option.
“I mean, it’s not unprecedented,” Flynn stated. “These people are out there talk about martial law like it’s something that we’ve never done. Martial law has been instituted 64, 64 times.”
Flynn’s comments came during an interview conducted by Newsmax host Greg Kelly.
“I’m not calling for that, we have a constitutional process. We clearly have a constitutional process. That has to be followed,” Flynn added moments later, appearing to pull back from his own incendiary proposal.
