Yeah, that's the question of the day.

PS: if you've got @#$%& for brains, you should avoid tweeting on the toilet. Something Trump doesn't seem to realize.

...because he weighs the same as a duck?



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Well, it's how Oliver North got his conviction for lying to Congress and obstruction of justice in Iran-Contra overturned...

I hope Congress doesn't get fooled again.

The witch hunt phrase is part of the disinformation campaign so no one will believe anything that comes out of the investigation. Trump started this campaign long ago against the intelligence community. Laid the groundwork. You can only believe sources that are in Trump's favor. The other half of this is what pdq pointed out. A way to get a criminal conviction overturned.

I'll also post this from another thread:

Last November, Flynn's lawyer tweeted this gem:

“A prediction: Donald Trump will make novel and unusual use of the President’s pardon power,”

So now we have a rule: if he weighs the same as a duck, let's give him immunity!

We shall use my largest scales!

They have no clue what Flynn knows, otherwise immunity would have some value to them. Flynn most certainly has a story to tell. If it was worth immunity he would have gotten it. They don't have a clue: witch hunt.
It's just a legal dance and Flynn holds all the cards.

I always figured holding all the cards was suppose to be a good thing.

I don't know if it's a witch hunt or not, but if I were Flynn, I'd ask for immunity regardless of what I knew. If they want to, Congress has the power to screw you good. So I don't think one can say that asking for immunity proves he has damaging information.

Spicey says today that Obama did "very, very bad things" like wiretapping Trump.

Look people, put up or shut up.

I hope Gen. Flynn Facts has a good security team for protection.

And if you go into it claiming it's "a witch hunt," immunity or not, why would you believe anything he said?

More to the point, with the speed at which leaks and other weirdness comes out of this White House, do we really need Flynn to talk, or is it just seem like a convenience today? People that ask for immunity just make me want to wait on them even longer, so that someone else rats them out and makes immunity impossible.

My inclination is also that if Flynn knows someone else knows, too, and it's easier to catch a bigger fish with a bait fish.

This Russia thing among so MANY players in the Trump administration is so deep and with so many fingers and layers...it is just amazing. This makes Watergate look like a speck of dust.

The right wing noise machine is making the same claim about the unmasking of Americans: much bigger than Watergate.
