Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn Says He Has A Story To Tell On Trump And Russia, And He Wants Immunity From Prosecution




Wall Street Journal/FOX News: Flynn offers to testify in Trump-Russia probe in exchange for immunity

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.

Mr. Flynn’s attorney, Robert Kelner, declined to comment.

WNU Editor: This offer was apparently made to the FBI and to the House and Senate intelligence committees through his lawyer .... but so far there are no takers .... at least that is what the Journal reported. I say accept the deal .... and find out what he has. But I suspect that this offer to testify has more to do with his worry that in the future he will be criminally investigated .... especially after Former CIA Director James Woolsey talked about this .... More details on Flynn working as a foreign agent (CNN) .... and this is his guarantee that he will not have to go through the legal process. As to what does he have .... no one really knows .... but here is an easy prediction .... the speculation is going to run rampant on this one.

Let Flynn talk for immunity.

Immunity can be taken away.

That is if Flynn has a nothing burger, then he should be prosecuted. The immunity deal is not ironclad.

If Flynn does have a bombshell then, it is likely people will be focused elsewhere and not at him.

Jay Farquharson said...

Moron, there is no lawful process for stripping granted Immunity from a witness other than perjury during testimony.

Unknown said...

Pretty disgusting to just insult someone like that. Usually people that do the that have an over inflated opinion of themselves

Anonymous said...

Jay is the best example of a Liberal Left Snowflake....Cries about someone like Trump and his mean words....but doesn't hesitate to insult someone who disagrees with his views!!

Aizino Smith said...

JABBER,

We know about immunity and perjury.


Not telling the whole truth would be perjury. That would be lying by omission. It would be shading the facts.

I do not think Flynn should have been let go, but Pence knows more than I do so...



Aizino Smith said...

We also know immunity. You know things like qualified immunity for government officials.

The great liberal paragon, Defender of DemoKKKrat faith, Nifong went to jail and was disbarred.

Jay Farquharson said...

LMFAO,

Omission isn't perjury.

What a moron.

Jay Farquharson said...

LMFAO,

There's this thing called Google.

If you don't know shit about stuff, you can Google it and learn stuff, but learning stuff aint a Trumpkin quality, because you might be exposed to fact or science, not ignorant opinion.

In US Law, there are only three kinds of immunity,

Soverign Immunity, which only applies to Governments, Government Officials and some Indian Tribes, under specific conditions, that provides immunity from lawsuits.

Testimonial Immunity, which provides immunity from self incrimination, but allows prosecution if there are other witnesess and other evidence,

And Blanket Immunity,

LMFAO

I personally do not think the Democrats are going to give immunity. Flynn has always been loyal to Trump, and he must be beyond livid at the Democrats for what has happened to him. If anything .... if he has immunity .... he does not have to worry about perjury, and it will give him a chance to unload on the Democrats, and I suspect that the Democrats know that. If immunity is given .... it will be because they (i.e. the Democrats) will know what he will be saying in his testimony. I say .... good luck on that.

Aizino Smith said...

"that the evidence I shall give will be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth."

omission would be misleading the jury.

If a prosecutor asked you for instance, who was at a meeting and you name 3 people when 5 were there. That would be an omission.

Oliver North.

LMFAO,

Aizino Smith said...

The Dhimmicrats gave Oliver North immunity. He ran circles around them

Let the Dhimmicrats give Flynn immunity. We can bag Hillary, Obama and many other Demoncrats.

Jay Farquharson said...

LMFAO,

Still desperately clinging to a 40 year old fantasy, I see.

In that 40 years, no criminal charges against the Clintons, or Obama, meanwhile, 57 Republicans went to jail, mostly for pedofillia.

LMFAO

Oliver North is a free man and living large.

You are throwing spitballs.

He is more of a warrior than you could ever hope to be.

Maybe that is why you have a hard on for him.

Oliver North, along with other members of the Reagan Administration, committed treason, first, by making a deal with the Mullah's to continue to hold the US Embassy hostages to sink Carter's re-election,

Then, with Iran-Contra, Cocainegate and S&L.

But then, like peodofillia, treason is a Republican core value.

LMFAO.

Poor Jabber believes that George H.W. Bush flew secretly in a SR-71 to Iran.

Poor Jabber cannot explain why poor little Bush did not freeze to death when the plane went into the stratosphere on its trip to Iran.

Jay Farquharson said...

LMFAO,

Treason is a Republican value.

Aizino Smith said...

The particulars of the Leftist/Democrat allegation is that George H.W. Bush flew to Tehran on the belly of a SR71.

This when Carter ran the military.

Jabber cannot defend it, so now he is trying to baffle us with B.S.

Yup,

Now we learn that Podesta will go to jail along with Hillary and Obasma.

LMAO

"To make matters more intriguing, the Russian state-funded investment firm, Rusnano invested $35 million into Joule, just two months after Podesta came on board. Senior Russian officials and businessmen with ties to Putin served on Joule’s board along with Podesta."

Poor stupid ass JabberJay

Jay Farquharson said...

LMFAO,

40 years of Clinton Hunting, 0 Clintons in jail.

147 Republican's in jail however, serving a total of 1764 years in jail.

Mostly for diddling little kids.

Not saying that if you are a "cockservative" you are a paedofile and traitor,

But if you are a traitor and paedofile, you are probably a "cockservative".

Have you stopped sexually abusing kids yet, Anzino?

Aizino Smith said...

Comparing 1 corrupt political family that has been on the national scene since 1992. to a whole political party that has members currently on the scene from the last 4 decades.


It is interesting that the Clintons did not see it as a detraction that that Chelsea's father-in-law was a convict. It did not faze them whatsoever. LMAO.

Without Hillary in power, Chelsea's husband, Marc Mezvinsky, suddenly found out that he was not a hedge fund manager.

Clinton faction in power at the DNC = Marc Mezvinsky is a hedge manager

Clinton faction out of power at the DNC = Marc Mezvinsky is not a hedge manager.

LMAO. Jay did Marc Mezvinsky lose your money?

"Emails discovered as part of Wikileaks' release of the "Podesta emails" seemed to indicate that Mezvinsky had used his ties to the Clinton family to obtain investors for his hedge fund through Clinton Foundation events"

Marc Mezvinsky lost 90% of the money entrusted to him. that takes a special kind of stupid. It is a kind of stupid remarkably like Jay's kind.

Aizino Smith said...

Thanks Jay.

I read more about the family that the Clintons married into.

They are stupid and greedy.

Chelsea may not be virtuous, but she married into that family?

She must be dumber than a box of rocks.

So a guy with parents who were both small time Democrat Party barons, representatives, goes to Stanford and works at Goldman Sachs.

After all that top notch training and experience al he can do is give back his clients ...

Is clients the right word or is it mark?

... 10% of their investment.


No doubt in future Democrat administration Marc Mezvinsky will be an economic adviser or treasury secretary.


And JabberJay 'The WW1 Minute MMan' will be singing paeons of praise about
Marc.


But Jabber is good for it. He is down for the s'c'ruggle.
