Oliver North who called on Bill Clinton to resign.
Who said Clinton wasn’t his president.
Who fought for this country.
Thrilled about the Oliver North news. A total warrior for freedom, this is the last person that anti-gun advocates would want as the new President of the NRA board.

Literal traitors heading both the NRA and the White House now. Wow. The man sold advanced US weapons to Iran with cash from Pablo Escobar's cocaine business, which he protected. No wonder that NRA convention crowd was chanting anti-FBI slogans.

Wait, we thought it was a Russian thing?
This is more evidence that the pool of extremists that are trying to wreck our country is very small.

Interesting how little homework haters do before tweeting hateful crap.
He was convicted in the Iran–Contra affair of the late 1980s but his convictions were vacated and reversed, and all charges against him dismissed in 1991.

Gosh, ya’ don’t say?
From the LA Times, 1991:
A federal judge on Monday dropped all criminal charges against Oliver L. North, the central figure in the Iran-Contra scandal, ending a saga that the former White House aide characterized as “five years of fire.”
U.S. District Judge Gerhard A. Gesell dismissed the case at the request of independent counsel Lawrence E. Walsh, who said that testimony provided last week by North’s former boss, Robert C. McFarlane, made it unlikely that North’s previous convictions could be reinstated.
From the New York Times, 1991:
A Federal judge dropped all charges today against Oliver L. North, bringing to an abrupt end the five-year prosecution of the former National Security Council aide that was the most celebrated and hotly contested legal battle of the Iran-contra affair.
But snowflakes are gonna snowflake.
