Wall Street Journal/FOX News: Flynn offers to testify in Trump-Russia probe in exchange for immunity
WASHINGTON – Mike Flynn, President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser, has told the Federal Bureau of Investigation and congressional officials investigating the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia that he is willing to be interviewed in exchange for a grant of immunity from prosecution, according to officials with knowledge of the matter.
As an adviser to Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign, and later one of Mr. Trump’s top aides in the White House, Mr. Flynn was privy to some of the most sensitive foreign-policy deliberations of the new administration and was directly involved in discussions about the possible lifting of sanctions on Russia imposed by the Obama administration.
He has made the offer to the FBI and the House and Senate intelligence committees though his lawyer but has so far found no takers, the officials said.
Mr. Flynn’s attorney, Robert Kelner, declined to comment.

WNU Editor: This offer was apparently made to the FBI and to the House and Senate intelligence committees through his lawyer .... but so far there are no takers .... at least that is what the Journal reported. I say accept the deal .... and find out what he has. But I suspect that this offer to testify has more to do with his worry that in the future he will be criminally investigated .... especially after Former CIA Director James Woolsey talked about this .... More details on Flynn working as a foreign agent (CNN) .... and this is his guarantee that he will not have to go through the legal process. As to what does he have .... no one really knows .... but here is an easy prediction .... the speculation is going to run rampant on this one.
