UPDATE: Now if you want too see what a real immunity deal looks like, just go back to the FBI’s “investigation” of Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private server to keep her crimes from becoming public record. That’s what an immunity deal looks like. And that one is real.
The Mockingbird press are beside themselves this morning saying Trump’s former National Security Adviser, Gen. M. Flynn, has “requested immunity from prosecution” in exchange for his testimony before the new Senate Intelligence Witch Hunt Committee. That is absolutely fake news. Its a deliberate, bold-faced lie.
Below you will find the actual statement released by Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner.
The text of the unsigned statement is as follows:
General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit.
Out of respect for the Committees, we will not comment right now on the details of discussions between counsel for General Flynn and the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, other than to confirm that those discussions have taken place. But it is important to acknowledge the circumstances in which those discussions are occurring.
General Flynn is a highly decorated 33-year veteran of the US Army. He devoted most of his life to serving his country, spending many years away from his family fighting this nation’s battles around the world. He was awarded four Bronze Stars for actions in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere in the war on terror. He received the Legion of Merit twice, and the Defense Superior Service Medal four times. He is a recipient of the Defense Department’s Distinguished Service Award and the Intelligence Community Gold Seal Medallion for Distinguished Service, as well as numerous other decorations.
Notwithstanding his life of national service, the media are awash with unfounded allegations, outrageous claims of treason, and vicious innuendo directed against him. He is now the target of unsubstantiated public demands by Members of Congress and other political critics that he be criminally investigated. No reasonable person, who has the benefit of advice from counsel, would submit to questioning in such a highly politicized, witch hunt environment without assurances against unfair prosecution.”
This is not a request for immunity in exchange for testimony. This is a stark condemnation of the rabid atmosphere in the complicit press to twist and turn anything they can in order to keep the story about Russia’s hacking Hillary’s doomed campaign in the headlines for one more day. He is saying he wont let his client testify at a kangaroo court and he’s absolutely right to do so.
Now that Trump has replied to this development saying Flynn’s lawyer is right, this is a “witch hunt”, I wonder if next week’s talking points for the Mockingbirds will be to call Trump a liar because no one is actually out there hunting real witches.
Here is the image of the statement as it is being reported. It is not signed.
What we are seeing is a constant barrage of attacks on the Trump administration from the intelligence agencies via leaks and their associates at the various complicit media outlets.
The reasons for these most recent attacks could be multi-faceted. Maybe it’s because the Crowdstrike story is falling apart. Maybe because Rex Tillerson just said we would leave the choice of Assad remaining in power to the Syrian people. Who knows why they are doing it. Maybe because Trump has invited members of House leadership to come by the White House and see info on how the Obama administration illegally spied on him and his transition team and then leaked that info to the press.
However you look at it, this is a non-story. It’s the deliberate misinterpretation of Flynn’s lawyer’s statement in order to further slander the man and Trump by extension. It’s also a distraction.
Please help keep AE up and running if you can.
