    Default Trump's former national security adviser refusing request to speak to Hill committee

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/12/politi...op&CNNPolitics



    "Flynn first declined to comply with a Senate subpoena in May, asserting his Fifth Amendment rights. More recently, the committee has reiterated its request and Flynn has declined again, the source said.

    Flynn has also been subpoenaed by the House intelligence committee, which is conducting a separate probe into Russia's election meddling. Flynn had offered to testify before both the Senate and House intelligence committees in exchange for immunity, but neither committee accepted the offer."


    It appears he wants a get out of jail free card. If he did something wrong/illegal, I'm sure Americans want him help accountable. At least that's what we normally say about law breakers.

    The FBI doesn't put people under oath since its already illegal to lie to them. Any more silly myths to put to bed?

    Wow.

    The President really should have listened to Obama about not hiring Flynn.

    All of these wounds are self inflicted.

    It continues to amaze me. The fallacious whispers that originate from the right-wing media complex turn in to factual reality for so many people. Even when we all have the same access to the same information that can completely discredit the fabrication.

    Yeah. Some are more affected than others but this absolutely happens on the left as well.

    Confirmation bias is an incredibly powerful force. Ignoring evidence that does not confirm our pre-existing beliefs is ignored or minimized.

    The bizarro world of alt-facts that forms the right-wing information bank. Sigh.
