Multiple congressional committees approached Michael Flynn’s original defense counsel to raise the prospect of immunity in exchange for Flynn’s congressional testimony but were spurned, multiple sources familiar with the interactions told The Federalist.After Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements to federal investigators, representatives of multiple congressional committees with oversight responsibility for national security matters asked Flynn’s lawyers if Flynn would testify before Congress in exchange for a congressional grant of immunity. Robert Kelner, Flynn’s attorney at the time, immediately dismissed the overtures, sources told The Federalist.

I'd like to know how Gen. Flynn ended up with this law firm and this lawyer. Do we think it is just an accident that a law firm that the FBI could lean on got hired by Flynn? Or do we think the FBI has dirt on all the big firms? Just in case, you know. And then I think of J. Edgar Hoover and how he stayed the Director of the FBI's predecessor and the FBI under the following presidents: Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon. Amazing that all of these men, many who hated one another, ALL agreed that J. Edgar should stay in charge of the FBI. Always good to have a little "insurance", as it were.

No question that the original "defense" lawyers were actually working against Flynn. That should be worth disbarment.

Earlier this week, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer postponed lawmakers’ return to Washington DC, citing concerns about coronavirus transmission. Congress should stay out of Washington DC a lot longer. Even until next year.The primary reason isn’t because they, like health-care workers or truckers or grocery store employees or pastors, might catch coronavirus doing their jobs. The primary reason is that when they “do something,” Congress usually hurts the country far worse than if they just took naps in the closet or played cards all day, like my husband’s coworkers at a union-run former workplace.

It’s all in the wrist — at least when it comes to figuring out what happened to the suddenly undead Kim Jong Un of North Korea. State media released footage Saturday of the portly 38-year-old dictator riding an electric cart around the Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer factory with a new, mysterious mark on his wrist, NK News reported. Information about the video and the mark on Kim’s wrist was very limited. A US medical professional told NK News that the small mark might signal a recent cardiovascular procedure, possibly a right, radial artery puncture.

Presumed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden finally addressed Tara Reade’s allegations of sexual assault against him on Friday’s edition of MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The former vice president denied the allegations, but also refused to unseal the records from his tenure in the Senate, during which Reade’s alleged assault occurred.Biden’s rhetoric on the issue has evolved from “believe all women” who come forward with allegations, to writing off Reade’s claims as false without giving his former aide a real chance to tell her story. President Trump’s re-election campaign exposed this blatant double standard

The United States should prepare for another 18 to 24 months of “significant COVID-19 activity” — which likely won’t end until about 60 to 70 percent of the population has been infected, recover and develop herd immunity, experts reveal in a new report. The report, released Thursday by the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, warned Americans of a worst-case scenario that would involve a larger wave of COVID-19 infections coming in the fall and winter, and one or more smaller waves in 2021. (Snip) The experts say it’s “hard to even understand the rationale” as some states are beginning to lift their restrictions.

Despite polls showing that he leads President Trump in key states and in the country overall, there remains something seriously missing and not credible in the putative presidential nomination of Joe Biden. The polls are never accurate with Trump, and there is both a reticence by his supporters to identify themselves and some sampling errors by the main polling organizations because of the unusually high numbers of people this president draws to the polls in his support who are not otherwise frequent voters. The real test of these matters is how the people vote, and the country saw Joe Biden come in fourth in Iowa and fifth in New Hampshire, and

American universities once attracted students from around the world. Prestige places like Harvard and Caltech did so, but it also happened at good state schools like the University of Illinois, University of Texas and even my own alma mater, the University of Colorado. The scientific education was second to none. Even outside of science, a broad-based humanities program thrived. As an engineering student at CU, my required curriculum included two full years of “Great Books” where we studied Socrates, Homer, Virgil, Chaucer and Milton.
