Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is done playing games in the swamp. Flynn has been used as a piñata by the Dems – there are new reports that they threatened his son to get to him.
Now, Flynn accepted responsibility for what he did – he has lost his professional standing (in some circles) and lost his financial security to mounting legal bills.
What could be learned by dragging him in front of Congress to rehash his FARA violations? We all know what he said to Russia and we all know Trump would have told him to do the same if Flynn had asked him.
In other words, this is just Adam Schiff trying to create a spectacle where nothing new will be learned. While they don’t see it, this is a recurring problem for the left – how many times will we fall for the “sky is falling” nonsense with Trump?
They have been wrong so many times it is astounding the media keeps pushing their narratives – we see another one with this Ukrainian call.
From The Hill: Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights rather than testify before the House Intelligence Committee, Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell said in a letter Monday, according to The Washington Examiner.
Powell, who replaced Flynn’s previous attorneys in June, wrote that Flynn refuses to be “paraded, harassed or disparaged” by Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), according to the Times.
Powell has previously accused federal prosecutors of withholding evidence favorable to Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador. Flynn’s sentencing on the false statements charges was previously delayed to allow him to continue cooperating in the investigation into a former business partner’s foreign lobbying.
From The Washington Times: Flynn admitted to lying about discussions he had with the Russian ambassador about U.S. sanctions. He cooperated with the prosecution on a lobbying investigation unrelated to the 2016 election.
Ms. Powell said in her letter to Mr. Schiff that Flynn “will not appear before your committee on September 25, 2019 to be paraded, harassed or disparaged for doing so.”
She accused Mr. Schiff of a “disregard for propriety, professionalism, prior practices and ethics in your theatrical demand.”
