Mike Flynn, Trump’s disgraced former National Security Advisor, just brought a wild card into the already dangerous presidential investigation—Robert Kelner. Kelner is a partner at Covington and Burling, one of the Republican Party’s most loyal firms, having represented the National Committee, Congressional Committee and Senatorial Committee.
And he’s also part of team #NeverTrump.
Kelner has been a vocal critic of Trump and has been attacking Trump’s Russian ties since summer of last year. He also went on record calling Trump’s trolling of the election as an “unprecedented attack on our democratic institutions.”
Now Kelner has joined forces with Mike Flynn, who is seeking immunity in exchange for his testimony in Trump’s investigation. Thus far, Flynn’s plea for immunity has been rejected…but new attorney Kilner is making the request loud and public.
Trump himself even suggested Flynn should request immunity 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!”
The Twit Tacitly Tweeted on Twitter. (Try saying that three times fast)
The question is, why did Flynn hire a lawyer who was and is such an anti-Trump powerhouse?
Probably because he has a story to tell…and it’s not going to be one that Trump wants to hear…or is going to want the American people to hear either.
It’s a perspective we haven’t seen before but need to see, in order to understand how and why Trump colluded with Russia and how it endangers all of us.
John McCain added his own two cents, saying it was “highly unusual” that Flynn is requesting immunity.
We can’t wait to see what chicanery Trump and Putin have going on. From the looks of things, we haven’t even begun to dig up the dirt that the Trump Administration has tried to bury.
