WATCH: Protesters Shout ‘Lock Him Up’ at Michael Flynn as He Arrives at Courthouse for Hearing

How you like it now?

Disgraced former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn experienced a full circle moment today.

Nearly two years after Flynn railed against Hillary Clinton with chants of “Lock her up!” in a speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention, protesters outside of a D.C. federal courthouse got their revenge, shouting “Lock him up!” as Flynn exited his vehicle.

Flynn was arriving to the courthouse for a hearing after pleading guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation late last year about his interactions with Russian Ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak.

The protesters repeated the chants when Flynn left as well.

In Flynn’s famous “Lock her up” speech, he also claimed, “If I did a tenth of what [Hillary Clinton] did, I would be in jail today.” While the exhaustive investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server ultimately found no criminal wrongdoing and led to no arrests, Flynn’s admission of lying to the FBI could result in five to eight years in federal prison.

Many on Twitter savored the poetic justice.

Flynn’s guilty plea in 2017 was one of the most significant moments of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between Russia and now-President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
