Trump hired only the very "best people" and pardoned them when they were indicted or convicted of federal crimes.

Found it:  22 days

Michael Thomas Flynn (born December 24, 1958) is a retired United States Army lieutenant general who was the 24th U.S. National Security Advisor for the first 22 days of the Trump administration. He resigned in light of reports that he had lied regarding conversations with Sergey Kislyak.

He had no part in the election?  He had no part in "stop the steal"?

He was, and is, in the clown car with all the others.  Another wonderful example of who Republicans have become.

He had little input to the Trump administration.

Now, let’s talk about a clown car shall we.

Of course, he's remained part of his informal circle of crazies even without the title.

It seems President Joe Biden made history last month: That's when Sam Brinton announced the administration had hired them as deputy assistant secretary of spent fuel and waste disposition in the office of nuclear energy for the Department of Energy.

Any links to this and what he contributed to Trumps decision making?  Or is this conjecture on your part?

Thank you.  Other than being nonbinary, is there any other objection to this person?

Looks like a much better, more qualified person than:

MTG

Boebert

Stone

Gulliani

Navarro

Gaetz

Graham

Cotton

Cruz

Vance

Bannon

Miller

Palin

Pruitt

Jackson

Oz

Walker

Kudlow

Devos

etc., etc., etc.

Was Flynn?  We didn’t know as Obama/Biden sucked the FBI on him.  Now he is being painted as a lunatic.

Sammy boy I am sure is good at their job.  Generally, if one is at odds with reality it doesn’t end well.

So, Flynn resigns after 22 days on the job and then, 4 years later, shows up and Trumps asks him about using the military to overturn the election?  Is this right?  I couldn’t read the article because I’m not about to subscribe to The Telegraph in the UK.

I might have missed it, but I don’t think Trump used the military to try to overturn the election. Did the article go into what Flynn advised?

First of all, what does Flynn have to do with Brinton? Secondly, you're saying Flynn is being painted as a lunatic. Does that mean you find the characterization to be unreasonable?

Ichy mentioned Trumps appointments were part of a clown car and I gave an example of a clown in Biden’s appointees.  Its not that hard to follow.

The title painted Flynn as a lunatic and yes I do believe its ridiculous.

Being good at you job is not the end all be all of any position.  Sammy boy is not right in the head and should not, IMO, be representing America in any fashion (pun intended).  See response to ichy.

Samuel Brinton (born c. 1988)[1] is an American nuclear engineer and LGBTQ activist appointed to be the deputy assistant secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy in January 2022.[2] As of 2019, Brinton was the head of advocacy and government affairs at the non-profit LGBTQ youth suicide prevention organization The Trevor Project.[3] Identifying as gender-fluid, Brinton uses they and them pronouns.

Raised in Perry, Iowa, their parents were Southern Baptist missionaries who disapproved of Brinton's attraction to a male friend from school.[4] Brinton graduated from Kansas State University with a Bachelor of Science in nuclear engineering and vocal music. They have a dual Master of Science degree in nuclear engineering, technology and policy from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[5] Brinton is married to Kevin Rieck.[6] They told Metro Weekly they are an animal roleplay enthusiast.[7]

As a youth Brinton underwent conversion therapy, an experience they described as "barbaric" and "painful" in a 2018 New York Times op-ed.[8] With the Trevor Project, they founded the #50Bills50States campaign to have the practice banned.[9] Calling themself a survivor of conversion therapy, Brinton was the first of such individuals to testify before the United Nations Convention against Torture regarding the practice in November 2014.[10]

In 2016, Brinton was a senior policy analyst for the Bipartisan Policy Center, lobbying for updated regulations so nuclear waste can be used to power advanced nuclear reactors.[11] In February 2020, the website of Deep Isolation, a Berkeley, California, nuclear waste storage and disposal company,[12] listed them as its Director of Legislative Affairs.[13]

Yahoo! Lifestyle noted that Brinton "may be the first openly gender-fluid person in federal government leadership" after they were selected by the Biden administration to be the deputy assistant secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy for the Department of Energy in January 2022.[9]

In July 2022, Brinton posted a photo of themself on social media wearing a dress alongside Assistant Health Secretary Rachel Levine (who is a four-star admiral and a transgender woman) at the home of the French ambassador to the U.S. during a celebration for Bastille Day. The photo of the two official U.S. representatives together went viral and was mocked by Russian officials for showing America's acceptance of LGBT people.

Michael Thomas Flynn (born December 24, 1958) is a retired United States Army lieutenant general who was the 24th U.S. National Security Advisor[1] for the first 22 days of the Trump administration. He resigned in light of reports that he had lied regarding conversations with Sergey Kislyak. Flynn's military career included a key role in shaping U.S. counterterrorism strategy and dismantling insurgent networks in the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars, and he was given numerous combat arms, conventional, and special operations senior intelligence assignments.[2][3][4] He became the 18th director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in July 2012 until his forced retirement from the military in August 2014.[5][6][7] During his tenure he gave a lecture on leadership at the Moscow headquarters of the Russian military intelligence directorate GRU, the first American official to be admitted entry to the headquarters.[8][9][10]

After leaving the military, in October 2014 he established Flynn Intel Group, which provided intelligence services for businesses and governments, including in Turkey.[11][12][13] In December 2015, Flynn was paid $45,000 to deliver a Moscow speech at the ten-year anniversary celebration of RT, a state-controlled Russian international television network, where he sat next to Russian president Vladimir Putin at his banquet table.[14]

In February 2016, Flynn became a national security advisor to Trump for his 2016 presidential campaign.[15][16] In March 2017, Flynn retroactively registered as a foreign agent, acknowledging that in 2016 he had conducted paid lobbying work that may have benefited Turkey's government.[17][18] On January 22, 2017, Flynn was sworn in as the National Security Advisor.[19] On February 13, 2017, he resigned after information surfaced that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and others about the nature and content of his communications with Russian ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak.[20][21][22] Flynn's tenure as the National Security Advisor is the shortest in the history of the position.[23][24]

In December 2017, Flynn formalized a deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to plead guilty to a felony count of "willfully and knowingly" making false statements to the FBI about the Kislyak communications, and agreed to cooperate with the Special Counsel's investigation.[25] In June 2019, Flynn dismissed his attorneys and retained Sidney Powell, who on the same day wrote to attorney general Bill Barr seeking his assistance in exonerating Flynn. Powell had discussed the case on Fox News and spoken to President Trump about it on several occasions.[26][27][28] Two weeks before his scheduled sentencing, in January 2020 Flynn moved to withdraw his guilty plea, claiming government vindictiveness and breach of the plea agreement.[29] At Barr's direction, the Justice Department filed a court motion to drop all charges against Flynn on May 7, 2020.[30][31] Presiding federal judge Emmet Sullivan ruled the matter to be placed on hold to solicit amicus curiae briefs from third parties.[32] Powell then asked the DC Circuit Court of Appeals to compel Sullivan to drop the case, but her request was denied.[33] On November 25, 2020, Flynn was issued a presidential pardon by Trump.[34] On December 8, 2020, Judge Sullivan dismissed the criminal case against Flynn, stating he probably would have denied the Justice Department motion to drop the case.[35]

On July 4, 2020, Flynn pledged an oath to the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory,[36] and as Trump sought to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in which he was defeated, Flynn suggested the president should suspend the Constitution, silence the press, and hold a new election under military authority.[37] Flynn later met with Trump and their attorney Powell in the Oval Office to discuss the president's options. Trump denied reports that Flynn's martial law idea had been discussed
