What a tired buzzphrase.
If a defense lawyer used that in court, the jury would probably do an internal yawn.
If I stuck it in a white paper for clients, they wouldn't use my services again.
If a student submitted that in a college research paper, the professor would red-pencil it.
So, it's puzzling why Donald Trump used that cliché to describe the Mike Flynn situation. For a short period Flynn had been the big guy for security. Now, he is being probed by the FBI and Congress. The subject is alleged Russian interference in the campaign of 2016. Here is the coverage in the New York Post.
Flynn wants immunity in exchange for his testimony. He isn't getting it. So, the president tweeted "witch hunt." Incidentally, Flynn's lawyer Robert Kelner used the same phase.
It's odd that the oversized figure who captured America' s attention with his iconoclastic rhetoric is now down to platitudes in his language. Equally odd is why a lawyer, whose business is language, would also resort to such a worn-out choice of phrase.
