“He would not give the benefit of a fair legal process to anybody else but he gets the benefit of fair legal process," Kaine said.

"Lock her up, that’s right,” he continued, to chants from the crowd.

“If I did a tenth of what she did, I would be in jail today,” he added.

Video of Flynn joining the chant resurfaced after Flynn was charged Friday with "willfully and knowingly" making "false, fictitious and fraudulent" statements to the FBI about conversations with the Russian ambassador.

Flynn is expected to plead guilty Friday.
