Michael Flynn, former National Security Adviser, recently told the FBI that he’s willing to testify regarding Trump’s campaign ties to Russia. The catch- he wants immunity. What that means? There’s potentially incriminating information that Flynn is willing to disclose.
In February, Flynn resigned following allegations that he lied about his interactions with Russia to the White House staff. It was discovered that Flynn had discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak before Trump’s inauguration.
As of yet, according to officials involved with the investigation, it seems the FBI and Congressional intelligence committees have yet to accept Flynn’s offer. This could be due to the seriousness of Flynn’s actions or the investigative agencies simply aren’t ready to grant immunity.
Many other individuals have come under the scrutiny of the Russia-Trump probe, including Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, and Carter Page. Flynn is the first to offer immunity in exchange for testimony.
After Flynn resigned, it was discovered that he received tens of thousands of dollars for speeches made to multiple Russian companies. Flynn also received $56,250 from two Russian firms and the Kremlin-backed Russia Today news outlet.
