Heads Up

March 30, 2017 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

The Wall Street Journal just broke the news that General Mike Flynn is offering to testify in exchange for immunity.

Everybody knew this was going to happen but I’m just surprised at how soon it happened.

Bubba, the darn good lawyer, says that the way he reads it, Flynn asked for transactional immunity.  That means he will testify if he’s not prosecuted.  (Use immunity is something else – it mean you can’t use his testimony against him.)

    Circular firing squad!

  2. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. Let me get the popcorn in the microwave.

    We’ll all be chomping at the bit to hear what he has to say! I’m hoping he will throw Trump and his Goons so far under the bus that they’ll have to haul them ALL out of the White House in handcuffs and leg irons!!
    I need to buy more popcorn!!

  4. I hope whatever he says is just icing on the cake and the prosecutors already have the evidence they need without him because Flynn lies and he’s a bit whacko and the defense lawyers will be all over that.

  5. I tried to share this on my Facebook page, but every time, below the “Heads Up” headline, the only thing that would come up with it was the notice on the left that the blog is having caching issues…not the post about Mike Flynn.

    Just wanted to let you know, JJ, so you could check into it.

    He has to provide solid usable evidence, I believe, before they will give him transactional immunity.

    Best be careful some wingnut doesn’t immunize him permanently.

    Cheryl- this one’s for you and all popcorn lovers, unless it doesn’t have butter.

    Once the rollover starts it can roll all the way to the top.

    Hope this mess unwinds sooner rather than later. We look like a banana republic, if not worse. Did have to laugh, though, at a comment made by some official re Trump’s wall. Hadn’t thought about this, but it’s true. He said the wall can’t be built as Trump envisions it because putting a wall on our side of the Rio Grande would be ceding the river to Mexico — and we’re not about to build it in the middle of the river.

  10. e platypus onion says:

    C Bear that was Sec of the Interior Zinke said that. There are some serious mountains in the way and over 2000 landowners that need to cede rights of way which will force the cost of the wall to rise significantly.

    Wingnuts aren’t likely to fund any wall this budget period as they try to avoid a shutdown. Wingnuts cannot govern. They can only obstruct.

  11. I hope Flynn watches his back…

    We have teetered on the brink of “banana republic” since the snacilbupeR presented their array of clowns and the clown car in the build up to November 8, 2016.

    We were a de facto banana republic once the dark side of the electorate selected Donald Drumpf as president.

    We crossed over into pure banana republic territory the instant Drumpf was sworn in.

    For some, I hope myself included, the march to freedom began at the same time. There is a sports fairy tale that goes when the Cowboys defeated the 49ers on the kitty litter field in San Fran Eddie DeBartolo walked off the field talking to George Seifert about how to win the NFC championship next year. And they did. Anti-snacilbupeR should be thinking the same thing.

  13. Papa: I hope that, like John Dean, Flynn gets immunity for his testimony to the current investigations, providing impeachable testimony, only to find that it doesn’t apply to later investigations, resulting in prison time. That way, his cellmate could watch his back every night. Or at least the back of his head. Sorry Mama.

    Just don’t let him pull an Ollie North – take an immunity bath and all the blame.

    Popcorn check. (Hope air popper is ok. Don’t have a microwave.)
    What a clusterf*** (sorry Momma) this has turned out to be. Knew it would be bad but things have reached beyond the pale status. Flynn is a nutter. Lawyers know that and it may work in their favor. Just want him to bring the whole pile of caca Del toro that is cockwomble and his cockroaches down down down. I wonder how trump’s ego will like being compared to a banana republic?
