Have you seen the screaming headlines that Mike Flynn offered to testify on the condition of immunity?
Boy, but the Left is ecstatic over it. I mean, these guys are so beside themselves with glee, they’re shaking like a spastic colon.
“This is it!” They bellow. “We finally have Trump! Flynn is going to flip on Trump!!!”
But even before I read his attorney’s statement, I knew they were getting worked up over nothing.
I saw the headline at Fox News and thought, “Well, given how this is a freaking witch hunt, I’d demand immunity too.”
Then I saw his attorney’s statement over at Milo’s site.
And the closing paragraph said it all:
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 entire Trump/Russia “investigation” is, pardon the phrase, trumped up.
And the goal of the investigation – as far as hacks like Adam Schiff are concerned – is to find a way to get the facts to fit their narrative.
If I were Mike Flynn, there is no way in hell I would appear before these committees without making absolutely sure that they can’t Scooter Libby me.
And I’m not the only one thinking that — as I saw this morning on Twitter:
Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!

Mike Flynn had his career derailed by these people.
But he wasn’t destroyed because he’s a Russian mole.
He was portrayed as a Russian mole in order to destroy him.
There is a difference, you know.
Mike Flynn was a threat, not to national security, but to the Obama apparatchiks secreted in the intelligence bureaucracy.
And that’s why he had to be destroyed.
If I were Mike Flynn, I would no sooner speak to these vultures without some guarantee of immunity than I would walk through a Muslim “refugee” camp without an armed escort and a fully loaded AR-15.
I wouldn’t be surprised if nobody takes Flynn up on his offer to testify. And no, not because they don’t want to grant him immunity from prosecution. But because they don’t want his testimony on record.
If I’m wrong and either the House or Senate intelligence committees accept his offer, I think the Democrats hoping for blood are going to end up with nothing but egg.
All over their faces.
As I finished writing this, I happened to see a clip of Ann Coulter saying pretty much the same thing on Lou Dobbs Tonight.
Ann: In this environment right now. I think if I were representing the White House chef, I’d want immunity for talking about anything having to do with Russia.
But let the Left get themselves worked up into a lather.
In the end, all they’ll manage to do is set themselves up for yet another great, big disappointment.
