... if he's done nothing "wrong" why would he want immunity to testify before Congress?



"when you are given immunity, that means you have probably committed a crime"
- Michael Flynn 2016

That said..Flynn has a tenuous relationship with the Truth and has lied before in official capacities.

Not sure if we would get the full truth even with immunity.


Nice quote-snag.

If they DO give him immunity, the testimony needs to be public.

WASHINGTON—Mike Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, has told the Federal Bureau of Investigation and congressional officials investigating the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia that he is willing to be interviewed in exchange for a grant of immunity from prosecution, according to officials with knowledge of the matter. As an adviser to Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign, and later one of Mr. Trump’s top aides in the White House, Mr. Flynn was privy to some of the most sensitive foreign-policy deliberations of the new administration and was directly involved in discussions about the possible lifting of sanctions on Russia imposed by the Obama administration. He has made the offer to the FBI and the House and Senate intelligence committees though his lawyer but has so far found no takers, the officials said.


WSJ

if he's done nothing "wrong" why would he want immunity to testify before Congress?


All the Leftists didn't seem to question it when all of Hillary's illegal server cronies asked for and were granted immunity.
Why did they need immunity?
The hypocrisy runs neck deep with the Democrats, along with their bullsh*t.


Sounds like a personal beef that has zero to do with the topic at hand. Also, are you claiming you know who asked for immunity and who was offered it? Makes a difference don't it?

You don't like people you think are leftists. /shrug

What does that have to do with Flynn? Nothing.

He's asked for immunity to testify. That just doesn't happen if there's no crimes involved somewhere.




/shrug
He is just using the Hillary defense, it got her and her cronies off the hook.
Now you don't like it when the tables are turned?

In real world legal proceedings the prosecution reserves the right to revoke immunity if any part of the testimony is found to be false.

I'd like to see that in place.

He has retro-actively registered as a foreign agent of Turkey and now sources say he got money from 3 different avenues from Russia..Not just RT Media..

He might very well have a story to tell..The net is closing in on him, he needs to make a move...we will see.

I do not see a reason for the DOJ to grant Flynn immunity IF they already have enough on him to prosecute him.

There is a strong possibility that granting him immunity that he could pull a Pagliano, who was given immunity and still used the 5th amendment over a hundred times during his testimony.

Just doesn't make any logical since for the DOJ to grant him immunity if they have enough already on him to prosecute.

Of course not....he is a rabid Socialist that cries under the Democrat name.
But you can bet if he had switched to Independent after losing the Democratic nomination, they would have fell in behind him.

Sanders was an Independent but he ran under the Democratic Ticket. He's still considered by many to be an Independent.

Oddly enough that now means he's the most popular Democrat too even though he's technically and Independent.

Jesus. There are some things that don't reduce to Red vs. Blue.

If crimes have been committed, I hope we find out about them. If the President or someone near him has been compromised by a foreign power, you should want to know that as well. Stop defending Trump for a second and think.

And for gods sake get over the old lady in the pantsuit. She is no longer a danger.

If he is part of a C.I. program this is being used for a reason. They do not have to tell the media the truth and he would have zero rights if he was found in the treason area.

He has been gone for weeks. Could have already spilled his info.

Again best case scenario it's a bipartisan takedown from president to congress. We get early elections both sides.

Whether you like it or not we need liberals and conservatives to have meaningful productive debate for the cohesive whole. The demoplicans have ruined us.

Did he ever testify under oath that he did not take money from Russia?

Surprisingly good article from WaPo.

If their timeline is right, those deals were through his business and before he was working with Trump and after his career in the U.S. Army.

He lost any shred he had of those two things when he endorsed Hillary.

I am ex military and have great respect for Mike Flynn, he is running scared. I was an enlisted guy, but came into contact with General officers on a regular basis. Mike Flynn was one of the good guys.

Only because you're a Trump fan. For any normal rational person it makes sense. But you have to be a rational and logical person for that to make sense.

Perhaps as Trump continues on his legacy of Failure that will become more clear as to why that is.

There's a trail of dirty $$ that suggests otherwise. I repect the military, but Flynn's in bed with Ivan. Not good.

Listen closely. No one asks for immunity exchanges if there is no crime. It does not happen.



The crime will be found to be his alone. He's the patsy. His attempt at immunity is his way out.

If he gets his immunity; he'll admit he talking to the Russian's a few weeks too early and nothing more.

The reason no one is taking him up on his offer is because all they have is him. If they give him immunity then they have no one else to go after.

Short term loss for long term gain. It's 60D checkers, try and keep up.

Uh,. no. He just ruined his business career and reputation.

More likely he was already deposed and is already working part of the deal.

I don't' think there's any way Pence can come away from this unscathed:

Rachel Maddow Explains How Mike Pence Is Going To Go Down With Trump For Russia Scandal


Vice President Mike Pence claims he had absolutely no idea about that despite him being notified about on the record multiple times and it being a matter of considerable public discussion. Mike Pence’s role in the Mike Flynn scandal is flashing like a red beacon for anyone who sees him as the normal Republican in this setting.

The most common statement that I hear from readers when Trump impeachment is discussed is always some version of, “Yeah, but then Mike Pence will be president.”

As I have been writing for months, there is no way that Mike Pence didn’t know what was going on with Russia. The White House’s attempts to firewall off Pence from the rest of the scandal make no sense and will not hold up under investigation.

If Donald Trump leaves office under a cloud of scandal, the investigations, criminal and political, will continue. The Russia scandal won’t go away after Trump is gone. Mike Pence sold himself to Donald Trump when he became his running mate. Pence is deeply involved in this administration.

The political career of Mike Pence will be over when the Russia scandal blows up.


We cant know if they've got the goods on them or if this will all just dissipate into nothing. I don't know what we're looking at here. Nobody does right now. But this doesn't feel good. Understatement - I know. My heart is in my stomach tonight - I kinda keep hoping none of this is for real
