Flynn to invoke Fifth Amendment, rebuff Senate panel subpoena

May 22, 2017

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn plans to invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and rebuff a Senate panel subpoena, Fox News confirms.

Flynn’s decision comes less than two weeks after the Senate intelligence committee issued a subpoena for Flynn’s documents as part of the panel’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.

Sources close to Flynn emphasized that the decision is not evidence of guilt or wrongdoing.

Experts say records can be viewed as testimony and that providing them could be seen as waiving Fifth Amendment constitutional protections.

Flynn has previously sought immunity from “unfair prosecution” to cooperate with the committee.

    1. Retired says:

      They don’t need to use the fifth , they can out right lie and get believed , the left believes anything that gets said by the Demonds.

      1. gvette says:

        Killary lied under oath, true. No one calls her on that. Two sets of rules.
        Ok, this Bob guy that’s been on here. After reading what he just said to me, it was a carbon copy of AK.

        1. Retired says:

          AK uses different names and different script and slips up which one she/ it posts under , has been my experience .

          1. gvette says:

            Well, I can see Bob is AK. Oh, and the other one that was trying to best me, was up voting himself. That’s low, or is that DemonRAT.

          2. Retired says:

            I think all three are the same Moderator .

          3. gvette says:

            The other one didn’t sound like AK, or Bob. More of an airhead.

          4. Retired says:

            All three talk in circles and never give you a answer to your specific Question .

          5. gvette says:

            Well you’ve seen me on here a lot. I think you know I only post facts.

          6. Retired says:

            It’s the Trump Bashing that gets me , he is a different type that most do not understand . I had CO’s. and a couple of Bosses like him .If you were honest with them even when screwing up and did your job they treated you well.

          7. gvette says:

            Well my friend. It will go on all the time he’s president.That’s all the left has.
            Now, Bob just tried to compare car insurance, to health insurance.

          8. Retired says:

            Typical Demon Rat patting themselves on the Back, no one else will .

          9. gvette says:

            I told him when he did that, he had no credibility.
            What’s funny, the Bob version makes fun of my spelling. Does he not know there is spell check on this site? When all i get, is insults, I lose interest.

          10. Retired says:

            My spell check does not function right dealing with the three , so that is why my thought about them .

          11. gvette says:

            The site has it’s own spell check.

          12. Retired says:

            Well mine goes squirrely when going back and forth with them .My internet provider claims it is the site ,but it only happens with them three .

          13. gvette says:

            I find that funny. Sometimes I us AOL, other times I use google. The spell check works on all that talk with.

          14. Retired says:

            I just went to the site where you are and it wont let me post , like I said about them , the evidence is there .

          15. gvette says:

            LOL…she’s fucked up. This is what she just posted to me.

            Your foul, racist language is offensive.

            Your foul, racist language is un-American.

            Your religious bigotry is un-American.


            You are a traitor to everything our Founders fought and died for.

          16. Retired says:

            She has used that line for ever , like I said a different script with a different name .

          17. gvette says:

          18. gvette says:

            LOL…I guess that makes her/it feel superior!

          19. Retired says:

            According to all her/It under AK she is a Muslim and if she was Married , that is what she Married the dark ones . She has also claimed they were here before White men .

          20. gvette says:

          Carbon copy – probably means it’s a fact and well-documented then. Duh!

          1. gvette says:

            Former President Obama is not only leaving the U.S. government with a health care mess, but he leaves the country in deeper debt that when he took office eight years ago. According to data release by the U.S. Treasury, the outstanding national debt is now totaled at $19,944 trillion, which is an increase of $9.318 trillion.

            “According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 124,248,000 people in the United States with full-time jobs in December. The total federal debt of $19,961,467,137,973 equals approximately $160,658 for each one of those workers. The $9,334,590,089,060.56 that the debt has increased under Obama equals $75,128.69 for each one of those works,” writes CNS News.

            To put this in a simpler perspective, the debt increased by 86%.

            So how did this happen?

            Medicare/Medicaid was the most expensive culprit and added $1.1 trillion to the national debt, then Social Security cost $900 billion. While, only $595 billion was spent on defense and war.

            Not to mention, the increase in regulations were extremely expensive and only halted economic growth.

            “The Obama administration put out 3,069 regulations, adding nearly $900 billion in costs to the economy. Obama’s main focuses were fighting global warming and immigration. Obama’s rules added nearly 572,000 pages to the Federal Register, including a whopping 97,110 pages in 2016 alone — an all-time record,” writes The Daily Caller.

            Obama’s predecessor, former President George W. Bush left office with an additional $4.9 trillion after his eight years, from the $5.7 trillion he inherited from Bill Clinton. This is half of the debt acquired at the end of Obama’s term.

            Many of those in favor of economic growth voted for President Trump. In David Horowitz’ recent book, “The Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America,” he discusses the new president’s 100-day strategy which will boost the U.S. economy.

            “If you just say, ‘well we’re for free trade and we’re not going to look at the deals that we make’ — that’s not a good idea,” said Horowitz. “We’ve had an anti-business president now for eight years who doesn’t take a hard-nosed attitude towards these deals. Trump is going to get better deals for us, which is still free trade.”

            Change was definitely needed because if we were to have continued on the path Obama was on, the debt would have only increased.

            “Absent policy changes, the federal government’s fiscal path is unsustainable and that the debt-to-GDP ratio would surpass its historical high of 106 percent within 15 to 25 years,” according to the Government Accountability Office.

          2. mrpoohead says:

            You are either related to Peatro Giorgio or the result of much inbreeding.

            I am not defending the man, but the job – President is in charge of nothing. Congress makes law and policy. Congress repealed the Glass-Steagall Act which gave us the Financial Crisis 2008. All sorts of things since have been done by Congress in the dire hope that we can stop the rot and then start to balance the books. Debt still rocketing! Thus unemployment high – usually goes with recessions and depressions. Duh!

            ACA – nothing to do with Obama. It was initiated during Clinton Admin and was a two party working bee under BushII. It was coming either way and won’t be repealed – how it operates will change/evolve as do the health services of all other countries in the West – all of whom have far better healthcare. Duh!

            David Horowitz is a Nazi and a moron – I am banned from FrontpageMag as I consistently walked over his idiocies with facts. He is a bigot and a moron. Yes, I am aware of the irony of calling him a Nazi. He believes in free speech as long as it does not contradict his.

            Growth is a long way away, the debt will take two generations to resolve, by which time we will be a long way behind the EU and China. Suck it up buttercup! Our own fault, nobody else’s! Building a wall is a waste of money and won’t fix anything – illegal numbers have been falling since 2007. Mexico improving, less reason to leave. Duh!

          3. Retired says:

            You are one sick puppy, better go chase your tail instead of the BS you post . What was tried and what the Idiot that Obama appointed to come up with are completely different .

          4. mrpoohead says:

            Then please disprove what I said – you are just a sad old fart! And again I’m not defending the man, just the job.

            Don’t have a problem with most Presidents – Nixon, stupid; Kennedy and Clinton, scum; BushII, dis-interested; Trump however is in a world of his own. he’s a buffoon at best – generally a moron though!

          5. Retired says:

            Go back to chasing your tail ,might have better luck than the BS you post . Better go back and look at who set up the ACA and the ring leader that Obozo assigned .

          6. mrpoohead says:

   No BS, started under Clinton, working bee under BushII. Both parties supported, the only argument was were the t’s were crossed and the i’s dotted. Duh!

            The President is an administrator so merely enacting a Bill passed by Congress – duh! Can Trump just repeal Bill – no!

            You’re the Bozo – you blame people for something they have no control over. Are you Hitler?

          7. Retired says:

            Mr. Poo Brain ,it’s like I said you run in a circle .First you Blame Trump for doing nothing and now you say he is just a figure Head so why all the BS ??? Catch your tail yet ????

          8. mrpoohead says:

            Actually I’m laughing at the idiots who voted for something he can’t do. Yes, figure-head; no wall, ban, repeal. Congress’s job! Funny as!

            Obviously English not your first language.

      2. gvette says:

        I’m curious. I’ve never blocked anyone before. How do you do that?

        1. Retired says:

          At the top name line on the right there are a minus and triangle . the triangle gives you the option .

      3. mrpoohead says:

        Whereas the Alt-right right believe any conspiracy theory going. No facts, no substance just hyperbole and BS.

        1. Retired says:

          You get left mixed up with right again ,as Usual !

          1. mrpoohead says:

            Technically there is no left in America – liberal is in the middle, conservative center-right and the idiots on these pages are basically Nazi’s.

          2. Retired says:

            Idiots are your Demon Rats ,more communist than anything else.

          3. mrpoohead says:

            Never voted Democrat and considering your rhetoric I would not associate you with Republican – you are Far Right or Nazi.

          4. Retired says:

            I vote by the Individual and not party . the Nazi thing is History just like the 3Ks . There was no choice in 2016 other than keep the Clintons out of the WH .

          5. mrpoohead says:

            There were other people on the list. The Alt-right views are the same as the Nazi’s, Trump’s pre-election rhetoric was all “balme” – that was Hitler! Duh!

          6. Retired says:

            You are sick , better go take your meds and check yourself in on the ward .

          7. mrpoohead says:

            …..but I didn’t lie! No med’s required, but a glass of wine with dinner would be nice. Plus; I’m not a sad old fart like yourself!

          8. Retired says:

            Mr. Poo Brain there was no mention of lie ,just that you are sick .
