Return of “The Last Trump”


Potentially interesting.

“Mike Flynn hints he would testify in Trump-Russia inquiry in exchange for immunity”

“Immunity is typically sought to avoid penalty for breaking the law. Flynn agreed with the characterization while discussing the partial immunity granted to an aide to Hillary Clinton amid the federal government’s investigation of the former secretary of state’s use of a private email server at the state department.

Speaking to NBC’s Meet the Press in September, two months before the election, Flynn stated: “When you are given immunity, that means you have probably committed a crime.”

    “Wealthy folks have no need to steal or engage in corruption.”

    “He’s very rich. I don’t think that he ran for this office to line his pockets even more. I just don’t see it like that.”

    Kudlow, Chaffetz, and others who think along these lines are pathetic, miserable excuses that have no business…
