Michael Flynn Led 'Lock Her Up' Chants At The RNC Last Summer

Now, critics say he's the one who may have broken the law.

This clip isn’t aging well for Michael Flynn, who resigned as President Donald Trump’s national security advisor late Monday:

At last summer’s Republican National Convention, Flynn led “lock her up” chants aimed at Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton

Now, however, critics say he’s the one who may have broken the law over allegations that he discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador before Trump’s inauguration. The claims prompted “lock her up” to trend on Twitter early Tuesday.

If true, analysts say Flynn could have violated the Logan Act, which prevents private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.
