    Don't know; not sure exactly what they have leads on. I am not a lawyer, but if the reported timelines re: the filing as an agent of a foreign power for his work at his firm put him in violation of FARA and Title 37 sec 908; if they want him ... it seems pretty clear they could have him on that.

    Okay. so after 6 months now they have" bigger fish to fry". But, They don't want hear him to talk?

    With thousands of DC lobbyists and a revolving private-public sector door, you could probably take hundreds of .gov officials and get them on some kind of administrative technicality or another.

    Now, I'm no lawyer either. But, just looked it up and there hasn't been a conviction under FARA since 1966 and the only couple of cases even tried involved $ millions of dollars worth of corruption and kickbacks.

    Besides do You think Gen Flynn would be asking for immunity so he can roll over on his bosses,.... over some BS (like filing the paperwork for the emoluments clause) for which the max penalty would be forfeiting a couple months of retirement pay?

    What a joke. Their bluff was just called and they showed what's in their hand. Nothing.

    I wonder where this will go ...

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/25/u...ssia.html?_r=0

    WASHINGTON — Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s first national security adviser, may have violated federal law by not fully disclosing his business dealings with Russia when seeking a security clearance to work in the White House, top House oversight lawmakers from both parties asserted on Tuesday.

    The revelation came after Representative Jason Chaffetz, Republican of Utah and chairman of the House oversight committee, and other lawmakers on the panel examined classified documents related to Mr. Flynn, including a form he filled out in January 2016 to receive his security clearance. The form is known as an SF-86 and is required by anyone in the government who handles classified information.

    As part of the review, Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, the committee’s senior Democrat, said Mr. Flynn did not disclose in those documents payments totaling more than $45,000 that he received from the Russian government for giving a speech in Moscow in 2015, among others.
