Congressman Seth Moulton made reference to his time as a Marine Friday after news broke that former national security advisor Michael Flynn would plead guilty to lying to the FBI.

“When I was training to be a Marine at Quantico, you could fail a test, or drop out of a run, and you’d get a second chance,” the 39-year-old veteran wrote on Twitter. “But if you lied – about anything – you were gone that day.”

The Salem Democrat, who served on several tours as a Marine during the Iraq War, has long been outspoken about Flynn’s appointment in the White House.

Moulton wasn’t the only member of the Massachusetts congressional delegation reacting to Flynn being charged as part of the investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election.
