He's willing to talk to both.


He should talk to a US Attorney, and then to the press.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

Yet nobody wants to take him up on
it. That tells you he has squat, or
he has something that would embarrass
Obama. If he had something on Trump
they would have jumped at the deal.

Yeah, no. Remember Martha Stewert? She
committed no crime and went to jail for
lying in an FBI interview. Her story was
different than the one on public record.

Remember Oliver North? They gave him
immunity and the press went insane with
glee that he was going to give up Reagan.
That kinda didn't happen, North ran rings
around them and came out smelling like
a rose.

Congress just turned Flynn down, no thanks,
they said. Trump is 100% behind Flynn
getting immunity. Flynn in an uber-patriot,
very serious guy. His rep has been sullied
and he wants a chance to get it back. His
whole story is already out there, he doesn't
want to get Martha Stewert-ed and go
to prison on a technicality.

I remember those Oliver North days, when
the press was soooo disappointed that North
had tricked them. They had Reagan in prison
or impeached on a daily basis. lol

LOL.

Dems and Repubs alike hate Mike Flynn. He's a total nutcase. It's about the only bipartisan thing they can agree on these days.

Evenbob considers him a good guy.

No surprise there. He'll do anything to defend Donald till the bitter end...

.


He's a very serious person, he rarely smiles
and never jokes. He was super in the tank
for Trump and wants his good name back.
If congress thought his testimony would
give up somebody in the Trump organization
they would jump on this with both feet.

They're yawning.

So if Robert Mueller is thorough, will he have the power to subpoena the IRS for Trump's tax returns?

He should. An important rule of both investigations and politics is to follow the money.

In January, the Trump White House initially denied any contacts with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. With few exceptions, of course.


Quote: Reuters
Michael Flynn and other advisers to Donald Trump’s campaign were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the 2016 presidential race, current and former U.S. officials familiar with the exchanges told Reuters.


“It’s rare to have that many phone calls to foreign officials, especially to a country we consider an adversary or a hostile power,” Richard Armitage, a Republican and former deputy secretary of state, told Reuters.

Putin is now acknowledging that perhaps the Russians meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, but if it was the Russians, it was merely a patriotic individual who loves his Russian homeland. Because this crime was definitely not endorsed by the Russian government. Heavens, no.

Quote: Hot Air Blog
Why is Putin opening the door to Russian involvement now after denying it for so many months? The easy answer is that he’s doing what he usually does, trying to mess with people’s heads in the west by gaslighting them about their own institutions. Trump has spent months questioning whether Russia was really behind the campaign hacks; lately, thanks to Sean Hannity, righty populists have seized on Seth Rich as an alternative suspect — with encouragement from Russia itself. Now here’s Putin suddenly hinting that maybe Russians did it after all. It keeps the bitter “whodunnit?”/collusion free-for-all among American partisans going, never mind that the NSA, CIA, and FBI agreed months ago that Russian intelligence was responsible. Just two days ago, in fact, Putin went the other way by parroting Trump’s line that the entire idea of Russian meddling in the campaign is a fiction concocted by Democrats to excuse Hillary’s defeat. He’s playing both sides. What’s strange, though, is that he’s doing it at a moment when the U.S. and Russia are chatting about concessions, starting with returning the spy compounds in New York and Maryland to the Russian government. Why would he hint at Russian culpability in the hackings at a moment like that? Is he trying to squeeze Trump by suggesting that he might admit the whole thing was a Russian intelligence operation designed to help Trump win if the White House doesn’t play ball? Once he makes that move, further cooperation with Russia by Team Trump will be completely politically radioactive.


(Just to reiterate, the U.S. Director of National Intelligence concluded that the Russian government was behind it, not a rogue individual.)

But as Donald Trump would say, "Fake News!"
