As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Flynn Would Testify if He Gets Immunity: Report

From the Washington Examiner:

President Trump’s former national security adviser, Mike Flynn, is willing to testify to investigators in return for immunity, according to a report Thursday.

The Wall Street Journal cited officials in saying Flynn, through his attorney Robert Kelner, has made the offer to both the FBI and the House and Senate intelligence committees that are probing any possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

In a statement from Kelner, he didn’t explicitly mention anything about testimony but said Flynn “certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit.”

  1. Probably dozens of closeted stories and good information folks would freely confess to, if they knew no harm would come to them. Could a confessional booth be installed in the chambers? Wired for audio feed?

  2. Even given the current third rate political circus in Washington, this is a very curious move by Flynn’s lawyer, Kelner– “Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit.” There’s some weird, nasty underneath-the-radar stuff going on here (as is the case with most of the circus acts in Washington). Aren’t we all sick and tired of the Kabuki theater style of governance we’ve suffered from for the last few years? There’s an Evelyn Farkas hiding behind every door, apparently.

    • I believe this started as a witch hunt against the Trump Administration and continues as such.

      I do not remember such a flurry of activity over Hillary Clinton’s dispersal of classified information across the globe. No. I remember Comey, who is now drunk with power, saying she did not have any intent.

      And who remembers Obama’s hot mic moment when he informed the Russians he would have more flexibility after the election.

      I am not some Trump junkie who believes he walks on water. I do believe this is strictly political and that it is out of control.

      • Despite my total disgust at this whole thing here is a take on the Flynn immunity that makes sense.

        “That Flynn immunity story has already been proven false.

        WSJ story was a total fabrication. If you actually READ what the letter his lawyer wrote said, you’ll find that immunity from prosecution is never mentioned at all.

        The guy simply said that only an idiot would come and testify before a group of people who had been lying about him blatantly and calling for his prosecution for months without first confirming the exact nature of the discussions.

        Flynn wasn’t ASKING for immunity, hell he wasn’t even ASKING to testify. His lawyer was simply notifying the committee members that he would not be appearing voluntarily outside of exceptional circumstances, and never without the groudrules being spelled out beforehand.

        This is less than a nothingburger, it’s an outright falsehood.

        In the last year and a half, the WSJ has skillfully placed itself right along side the NYTimes in the fishwrap bin.”

        • I’ve thought about the Flynn situation, and you’re right. Whatever Flynn might say to a group of politicians hostile to him and Trump, they would distort, misquote, take out of context and try to punish/banish him from open public discourse. Yes, immunity is a good safeguard for him. These are the times we find ourselves in.

      • Why is Trump being investigated with the Russians? For months, McCain and the others have been trying to brainwash the American people about some Russian connection? Without any proof, this is just a phony story to get rid of Trump. That is the evil goal of Barack Obama, John McCain, the Bushes, and all the low I.Q. democratic communists. When will the real criminals like Obama and the Clintons be PUT IN JAIL FOR TRUE CRIMES? We don’t hear about the real criminals 24/7, thats okay with them, huh? And why is it the democratic/communists like all the Islamic would be terrorists who have killed thousands of our citizens, 1500 first World trade Center and then 3,000 more second World Trade Center. Thats okay with the democratic/commies but they are outraged by the FOREIGN COUNTRY OF RUSSIA? Instead of concentrating on protecting the American people from Islamic terrorists, they scream 24/7 ABOUT RUSSIA??? 64 million of us voted for Trump and if anything happens to Trump because of these lying democratic/communists 64 million of us will rise up and have a Revolution against you anti-American communists, THAT IS FOR SURE. Stop your evil lies about Trump, that will not work, although you may like to hear these evil phony stories on CNN and MSNBC and sometimes Fox too, be wary of what you wish for, the American people will rise up if anything happens to Trump. Donald J. Trump, President of the United states. Show some respect for your country and your people, the President and the Presidency. The Head Clown Schumer and Nancy Pelosi is steering the new democratic/communist party down the wrong road, thats for sure.

    • Yes, Marcus, so much Kabuki, so much smoke and mirrors. Seems like Trump supports Flynns immunity, must mean that the story Flynn wants to tell isn´t what the McCain-gang wants to hear. We are back to the days of Kremnologi, trying to decipher what´s going on.

  3. GENERAL Mike Flynn is willing to testify, but only under immunity. Oh boy.
    The shock wave going through the Pentagon, the former Obama administration employees, and the Dems must be stunning.
    And frightening.
    He has a story? Oh brother.
    Tell it General, tell it all.

  4. And now this, from NBC:

    “Michael Flynn’s Immunity Request Rejected By Senate Intelligence Committee”

    As we might expect, the NBC headline is misleading. The actual situation is that, as a Congressional insider says in the story:

    “A senior congressional official with direct knowledge said Flynn’s lawyer was told it was “wildly preliminary” and that immunity was “not on the table” at the moment. A second source said the committee communicated that it is “not receptive” to Flynn’s request “at this time.””

    Flynn’s “immunity” hasn’t been REJECTED as in, “don’t ever ask for immunity”; it’s the timing which is at issue.

    Could these headline writers be more misleading and corrupt? Not likely.

  5. It is depressing and ubelievable but true, that the media and the democrats are so desperate because of their big loss, that not a word that media and the dems say is true. I have been around a long time but never have I heard and been witness to a real “witch hunt” against a President of the United States. We should all be ashamed at the phony stories and headlines aimed at us 24/7, 7 days a week! Nothing is true, nothing! Can’t listen anymore, watch movies instead. But I am filled with hatred and loathing at people like Schumer, a big sloppy looking man who has only negativity and stupidity coming out of his mouth, that goes for Pelosi, too, she sounds just crazy to me. McCain has flipped his lid as he goes around sneakily whispering about Trump to whoever will listen, he is completely obsessed about getting Trump in trouble, stays behind the scenes, letting his boyfriend talk the trash, being the coward McCain is and full of lies about Trump, he stoops to reporting an unsubstantiated and looney report to the FBI about Trump which has been proven false and made up probably by McCain himself? Two angry men, McCain and the blond boyfriend,who think they are smarter than Trump,and also love the terrorists but hate RUSSIA What a swamp the government now is, filled with snakes with venom toward our President. Too bad, we have come to this point to have these evil people getting rich doing these evil deeds. Clean out the swamp, replace Sessions, he’s too meek, not doing enough to the Clintons and Obama, while the Clintons and Obama are running around with lies about Trump 24/7. Get Rudy Giulani in there, Sessions recused himself? who needs him, he should not have done that, he did nothing wrong so why did he recuse himself? Please God, find a way to make Trump safe from these snakes.We have all had enough of these ugly, disgusting lying crooked Hillary and McCain and others who do not work for us, just go around trying to get rid of Trump anyway they can, without morals, scruples, respect, truthfulness, nothing good about these snake politicians. Out brief spot! Out!
