This Tuesday, federal prosecutors told a judge that President Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, should serve up to six months in jail -- a reversal of their earlier recommendation of probation. The switch came after Flynn repeatedly disparaged the FBI and the Justice Department by disseminating conspiracy theories about the investigation into him.


On Twitter, a contingent of Trump supporters decried the decision, saying that Flynn's treatment was unfair in light of (what they say) are unpunished crimes against Trump perpetrated by the "deep state."
