Mike Flynn Cringes, Asks for Immunity

Lies Catch Up to Former Trump Presidential Advisor

Former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn has told the Senate Intelligence Committee he is willing to be interviewed about the Trump administration's possible ties to Russia in return for a grant of immunity from prosecution.  Flynn served as President Trump's National Security Advisor for three weeks before resigning because of lying to conceal his contacts with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak. 

Of particular interest to the American people is whether Flynn discussed the removal of US sanctions on Russia in return for Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and whether Trump himself was involved.

First, Flynn told the Washington Post he didn't discuss sanctions with Kislyak.

     Then, it was revealed that Flynn had met Kislyak.

          Next, Flynn said he couldn't remember whether they had discussed sanctions.

               Now, Flynn thinks he needs immunity.

Flynn's lawyer confirmed that discussions had taken place with the House and Senate Intelligence Committees  Asking for a grant of immunity is a common protection sought even by innocent witnesses, but in Flynn’s compromised situation it signals much, much more.

Why did the Trump transition team do such a poor job vetting Mike Flynn for the job of National Security Advisor?  Flynn failed to disclose payments for representing Russian interests, including his appearance at a Russian Television dinner with Vladimir Putin.  Then Flynn was caught representing the Turkish government.  Flynn registered as a foreign agent only after being caught and fired.

The DOJ warned the White House that Mike Flynn was vulnerable to blackmail for lying about his foreign contacts, before he was selected as National Security Advisor.  But the White House kept  Mike Flynn on the job for three more weeks.  Why?  Flynn should have been fired immediately as a foreign agent.

Perhaps soon we will have proof that the Trump administration is packed with traitors selling out America to the Russian Kleptocracy of Tsar Vladimir.
