NO immunity for ANYONE. Not for FLynn, not for Huma, not for ANYONE. Our little birdies and whistleblowers have more to give us. Nail them all. Lets for ONCE call dirty hands what they are... dirty hands.

He wants immunity because that is the practical thing to do when you don't know all there is to know about a case. He seeks to clear his name if the attorney letter is real. I don't know what he knows but he knows that he doesn't know everything there is to know about the case.


Other than insurance to cover his own ass in case they might...or already have...dig up something that would put him away too, what possible reason would he have for wanting to know everything there is to know about the case in the first place? The practical thing to do when one is afraid they're about to go down for committing a criminal act is to not make it even more blatantly obvious that they're as guilty as the evidence shows them to be by asking for immunity in exchange for testimony.

It is the complete antithesis of practicality to admit guilt by asking for prosecutorial immunity before he's even charged with anything, however; and if his attorney advised him to do so, he's wasting his money. He may as well just go on and give a full confession, because if they weren't looking too hard at him before, they most definitely are now. In asking for immunity, he very well may have inadvertently sealed his own fate. If, of course, there's actually any truth to this whole thing.

It's true. Usually this far after an election I've gone back to ignoring politics. which ever side won. I didn't feel like I had to watch every move and I've never been frightened by who was in the Whitehouse.


Right? Me, too! I never cared much about politics. I only just this time around paid lots of attention because of the outrageous line-up and quantity of candidates and of course all the media saturation. It was nearly impossible to ignore....but for the first time in my life I'm really really paying attention and it is very unsettling.

I've never been frightened either -- but now, knowing what I know, and seeing who these people really are, it does frighten me. The Theocrats and the warmongers and the haters of non-Christians have ruined everything.
Everything. My apologies to the decent Christians and those who wish to help the starving, homeless, ill, and destitute - but the nutjobs in the "cabinet" and legislature (Pence, DeVos, et al) are dangerous people.

You know what kills me. If you were to put any other religion in there, what would the reaction be? Why is this ok?

I agree with almost everything you've said there...but I SURE wish to hell, that people would leave religion out of political conversations. It's annoying, distracting, and almost as unproven as Trumps claims of Obama 'wiretapping' his phones.

I don't think we can leave religion out of political discourse when American politics is so fundamentally shaped by the politicians religion.

Pense....www.nytimes.com...

Bannon....www.salon.com... y-council_partner/

Sessions.....www.patheos.com...


See what I mean?

It's beginning to look like trouble on the horizon ...


You're not the only one to sense this. Well, in truth it could be the Nunes-WH stunt. Nevertheless...

Trump walked out of an executive-order signing ceremony without signing the executive orders

Someone's cage and brain are getting rattled. ..... OTOH maybe he's just having a stroke.... isn't that a doctor standing there with him?.... maybe his reaction is seizure-esque.... a serious underlying disease....quick, call Dr. Bombay... Bornstein.... wait, Trump is "the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”.... must be his cage and brain are just being rattled by all this.... here, I'll toast to your health, my Usurper-In-Chief, za vashee zda-ró-vye!

Oh absolutely. I know why it happens...that doesn't detract from my disdain for it. I tend to have this argument often and ive begun referring to it as the WTW (Water to Wine) Talking points.

Honestly I believe he just experienced a Trump...he stomped his foot, and stormed out in his toddler fashion because the big bad fake news guys asked him a hard question.

They want this to be a theocracy, just like other countries are theocracies. I think religion is poisonous, but YMMV.
I understand that it is only the extremists, like WBC, but the 700-club types and those who want to force prayer into schools are really no different than Muslim theocrats.
The people who injure, kill, isolate, and force their kids into those ultra-sheltered, ultra-angry weirdos.

Isn't Flynn the victim or is everyone forgetting that.

Remember the rape cases before they passed that law to make past behavior of the victims non admissible?

He should get immunity.

Why would he have to plead the fifth? Is he hiding something. Has he committed a crime?
If he got immunity he could lie. That's why trump wants him to get immunity.

Trump has his reasons for wanting Flynn to get immunity.
I bet he has a story to tell. I also bet if he gets immunity there won't be a word of truth in it but trump will come out smelling like a rose and somehow Obama will be guilty of something.
The IC is a step ahead of C student trump. They're not going to grant immunity. They want him under oath.
Sessions can't even weigh in.

and thats the conclusion that i reached when i first heard the news knowing flynns background. the problem is his credibility is shot. it was shot before any of these recent events and now its even worse.

It's a little difficult to want to shed a tear over someone who wants to give advice on how to illegally extradite someone to a foreign nation. Especially when they are receiving millions in foreign compensation to bolster hostile nation's image.
