President Trump’s former national security adviser General Michael Flynn has, according to The Wall Street Journal, told the F.B.I. that he is willing to testify to the bureau and a congressional committee in exchange for immunity from prosecution.
Flynn served as a campaign advisor and Trump’s national security advisor for less than a month before stepping down when reports of his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States became public.
Two reasons Flynn might be demanding immunity in exchange for testimony could be either that he fears unfair and aggressive prosecutors or that he has done something wrong and has information on someone higher-up that has also done something illegal.
Very little information on this report is available at this time and requests for comment from the FBI and House Intelligence Committee Chair Nunes have not yet been returned.
