Lawyer for Flynn releases statement

I’d like to discuss the statement from Flynns lawyer it reads as such

General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit.
Out of respect for the committees, we will not comment right now on the details of discussions between counsel for General Flynn and the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, other than to confirm that those discussions have taken place. But it is important to acknowledge the circumstances in which those discussions are occurring.

(The middle paragraph just details his career and accomplishments, the details of which aren’t important here so I’ll leave it out but you can read it in the link provided)

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 their unfair prosecution.

Now could someone please explain to me why people think this is so huge? Especially considering the lines I’ve highlighted. I’m no legal expert but that doesn’t really sound like it’s going to be very helpful to the people who think this is the beginning of the end for Trump. I want to put this situation to bed as much as the next person and I would be equally as thrilled to have definitive evidence for any outcome of the situation, but I just don’t see how this is the “big break” or even slightly helpful. By the sounds of it Flynn wants to tell his story but is asking for immunity because of the “witch hunt” and “highly politicized” circumstances. In other words he doesn’t trust that he will be subject to fair judgement. It really looks like Flynn is gearing up to claim his innocence through and through. And for anyone who says “innocent people don’t need immunity” I say that’s extremely naive.

  1. Famous quotes from the legal profession:
    “Everyone commits at least five felonies a day.”
    “I could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich.”
    This is all Flynn is trying to protect himself from. Yes, the system is broken but it’s not Flynn’s job to fix it, only to make sure he doesn’t get unfairly snared by it.

  2. In this time, where Trump has used the word “Witch-hunt”,
    Where people right and left are screaming of Heresy,
    It might be a good time to remember Jan Hus, and his fate.
    Jan Hus was invited to the Catholic Conference at Konstanz,
    and guaranteed his safety by the head of the Holy Roman
    Empire. To make a long story short, the guarantee was
    short-lived, and as a result, Jan Hus was also short-lived,
    as not too long thereafter, he was burned at the stake. In
    our New Age of searching for Witches and Heretics, – – –
    Mr. Flynn, and others in a similar situation, would be best
    advised to thoroughly inspect any guarantees of safety that
    they are given. The quality of the parchment, the ink used,
    and is the stamp the proper and legal stamp for such a
    “Guarantee of Safety”.

    • No one on the planet is safe anymore. Rather than use our brilliant minds to make Earth a real paradise with all the good technology, nefarious groups like DARPA and others devise ways of killing and torturing others. From heart attack guns, heat guns, one drop poisons, chemtrails, HAARP, GWEN towers, to who knows what, the evil on our planet is beyond a balanced human’s imagination.
