The Wall Street Journal has revealed Trump’s National Security Adviser, Lt. General Michael Flynn, recently volunteered to be interviewed by the FBI and CIC (Congressional Intelligence Committee) who are investigating Trump’s involvement with Russia on the condition he be granted immunity to prosecution.
Occupy Democrats reported:
Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Advisor in February when it was revealed that he lied to the FBI about conducting secret communications with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak concerning the lifting of the Obama Administration’s sanctions on the Russian Federation shortly after the election.
These communications were in violation of the Logan Act, since Flynn was still a private citizen and not a representative of the US government at the time.
Since then, it has been revealed that Flynn had been operating as a paid lobbyist for the government of Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who wanted Flynn’s help in extraditing Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen from his home in Pennsylvania back to Turkey.
Flynn also received nearly $40,000 in 2015 from the Russian government as payment for appearing at a 2015 party for the Kremlin’s state-run media outlet, RT. He was seated at the dinner right next to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, the mastermind behind both the hacking campaign against the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign and the disinformation propaganda campaign against the Democratic nominee.
Acting Attorney General Sally Yates warned the White House in January that Flynn was under the threat of potential blackmail by the Russians over those secret communications. When that warning leaked to the press, Flynn was forced to resign in disgrace.
Flynn retroactively registered himself as a foreign agent after his resignation, which means that he was both receiving payments from a foreign government and under suspicion of blackmail from a different foreign government while he was the National Security Advisor and privy to all our nation’s most classified information, all of which the Trump administration was aware of but did nothing to address.
If Flynn really believe Donald Trump is an innocent man, he wouldn’t be searching for immunity. This is a HUGE red flag to Americans. Trump’s very own National Security Adviser knows his chances of being prosecuted are high. This only supports the suspicion that Trump is hiding a very dirty track record.
At the moment it remains unclear if either of these federal bodies will take Flynn up on his offer. Who knows, they might have enough information to put Flynn away already. Trump has dug a big hole for himself. hopefully Trump’s regime won’t last an entire 4 year term.
