Breaking! Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn Offers to Testify on Russia for Full Immunity, Congress says “No”

I wonder what was brewing in former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s head when he offered to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in exchange for full immunity?

Whatever it was, President Trump apparently agreed with Flynn’s thought process because on Friday morning he tweeted that Flynn was right to ask for immunity in exchanged for his testimony.

Sadly for Flynn, the Senate Intelligence Committee has turned down his offer, saying that it was just too soon in the process for such a deal and that they weren’t looking for more witnesses just yet.

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.

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.”
