    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.

    If cleared means charges will not be brought, you are correct. What charges have been brought against Flynn?
    Having been "cleared" has Lerner now agreed to drop her fifth amendment claims and testify? Why not?

    I thought Hillary's email investigations established that everyone gets immunity and no charges will be filed?

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

    Do they usually record the testimony of a key individual under investigation or is that a myth too?

    Wow.

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

    All of these wounds are self inflicted.

    If your lawyer is also a key witness in the investigation, do they normally question the person being investigated with the key witness in the room too or is this a common practice with the FBI?
