    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.

    So you are supposed to essentially going back to May, and asking us to rehash those discussions we had in May, all over again?

    That's all that has been going on with the entire Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy. All that ever happens is old news gets a fresh spin on it, and you guys act as if you found new earth shattering evidence, and it's a completely new discussion.

    Maybe Flynn just knows all of this for what it is, a political witch hunt for Trump-haters to take out anyone associated with Trump, with none, zero nadda, nothing to do with Russian collusion.

    Yep. The numerous investigations are all part of a massive conspiracy to get Trump.

    How's the weather in Candy Land today?

    But you're okay with people you do agree with, using fallacy over fact in the promotion of a position you happen to agree with?

    Well... when the guy retroactively files as a foreign agent after he is fired.... kind of makes you wonder a little.

    I think that whatever is going on, it is going to be harder and harder to run interference for the President.

    Of course it does.

    This is politics.

    Wasn't it Trump who "took out" Flynn?

    I'm simply pointing out the hypocrisy. Taking the 5th is ok by LIBs if it is one of their own, but is a sign of guilt if it is taken by someone associated with Trump.

    Which "libs" said taking the fifth is not a presumed sign of guilt? I do not remember reading much of that around here.

    I know it's politics, but Flynn's not worried about the politics. My comment relates to Flynn's particular situation. Should Flynn concern himself about how it looks?

    I'm okay with Flynn taking the 5th so your statement is invalid. I don't think it's a sign of guilt, just that he's got a smart lawyer.

    No one said that explicitly but I'm quite capable of reading between the lines.
