When the walls were closing in on hillary clinton, several of her staffers were subpoenaed to testify under oath. Five were granted immunity: Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, John Bentel, Bryan Pagliano and Paul Combetta. Some after an FBI interview and some before. Despite that, Combetta and Pagliano pleaded the Fifth and refused to testify.

Now Michael Flynn seeks immunity in return for his testimony but the Senate Intelligence Committee has refused.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has rejected Michael Flynn’s request for immunity from prosecution in exchange for his testimony into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election, congressional sources told NBC News.

President Donald Trump‘s former national security advisor’s lawyer was told the move was “wildly preliminary” and “not on the table” at this point, a senior congressional official told NBC. It does not necessarily rule out immunity at a later date, since the Senate investigation is ongoing.

Flynn, who resigned after only weeks on the job, also offered to speak to the Justice Department in exchange for protection from prosecution, according to NBC. At this time, there is no indication that Flynn is admitting guilt to any crimes.

You can’t blame Flynn for wanting it:

In a statement Thursday, his lawyer Robert Kelner said no “reasonable person” would get questioned in “such a highly politicized, witch hunt environment without assurance against unfair prosecution.”

It was the Department of Justice who granted immunity to the Clinton 5. Now it is time for DOJ to similarly grant Flynn immunity. If not, then he pleads the Fifth. It allowed the Clinton 5, as well as Lois Lerner, to skate.

Without any doubt democrats would seek to shred Flynn’s credibility about what he might have to say about his being unmasked by obama administration officials. They are doing their absolute best to gum up the works. Besides, probably every single former staffer in the obama administration has Flynn’s transcripts already and so does the FBI. Had he done something illegal, they wouldn’t be needing him to testify anywhere. Additionally, Flynn is the victim of a crime- his identity was unmasked and then leaked to the press.

So if they want his testimony, it’s immunity or nothing. What’s good for the goose, you know.
