Mike Flynn Reportedly Wants Immunity From FBI

Unidentified officials told the Wall Street Journal Thursday evening that Flynn has offered to testify to the FBI as well as the House and Senate investigations for immunity, but has yet to be taken up on the proposal.

Mr. Flynn was forced to resign after acknowledging that he misled White House officials about the nature of his phone conversations with the Russian ambassador to the US during the presidential transition. The investigations are in some ways in their early stages, so it might be too soon to give Flynn immunity, or it could be a sign that investigators don't believe that Flynn can tell them anything that they don't already have.

"General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit".

The FBI is now conducting its investigation into the Trump administration's possible collusion with the Kremlin's DNC hack during the 2016 election.

It said Flynn had agreed to be interviewed in return for the promise of immunity from prosecution.

Flynn retroactively registered as a foreign agent with the Justice Department for work that his firm, Flynn Intel Group, did for a Dutch consulting company, Inovo BV, which has ties to President Recep Erdogan of Turkey.

The resignation came after Flynn, who served in the administration for less than a month, said he had given "incomplete information" regarding a call he had with Ambassador Sergey I. Kislyak in late December about USA sanctions against Russian Federation.

Since then, documents obtained by a congressional oversight committee suggest Flynn also was paid tens of thousands of dollars by three Russian companies, including the state-sponsored network RT, for speeches he made shortly before he became a formal adviser to Trump's campaign.
