Today I discussed how people should not assume that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has committed a crime or is turning on President Trump because his lawyer is seeking an immunity deal. Lawyers often seek immunity as an added protection, particularly in cases with powerful political interests. Moreover, some immunity deals are based on a witnesses information and not necessarily a witness’ culpability. It would seem that one person who would have to be convinced of that fact is Flynn himself. Flynn is shown below in 2016 saying that if someone gets immunity it probably means that you committed a crime.
Flynn made the statement in an interview on “Meet the Press” last September. In speaking of the Clinton email scandal, Flynn said, “when you are given immunity, that means you probably committed a crime.”
Fortunately for Flynn, that is not true and he will hopefully be given a more informed consideration from others in the current controversies.
While President Trump has support Flynn in his request for immunity, he once espoused the same assumptions over immunity:

Yesterday, the Russian Foreign Ministry all but admitted Russian interference in our elections.
Here is the automated message one hears when dialing the Russian embassy, according to the Foreign Ministry’s posting on Facebook:
“You have reached the Russian embassy. Your call is very important to us.
To arrange a call from a Russian diplomat to your political opponents, press 1.
To use the services of Russian hackers, press 2.
To request election interference, press 3 and wait until the next election campaign.”
The message is in both Russian and English, and can be found on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Facebook page.
Opposing Views and other media outlets have also published the audio recording.
The April 1st date of the posting “may” be a coincidence.
tnash – if you read Russian literature you would know they have a very dark sense of humor. 🙂 I think this is very funny.
– It was by far the best April Fool’s joke I’ve seen in a long time.
It got at least 250,000 hits on Facebook.
Excuse me, I meant our Canadian Rain Man, as Nick refers to him now.
Dear Fishwings, could you read one of Issacbasonkavich postings?
