President Trump’s former national security advisor, retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, is seeking immunity from prosecution in return for testifying to the House and Senate intelligence committees, a congressional aide said. The development was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
"Gen. Flynn certainly had a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit," his lawyer, Robert Kelner, said in a statement. "No reasonable person, who has the benefit of advice from counsel, would submit to questioning in such a highly politicized, witch-hunt environment without assurances from unfair prosecution."
On Friday morning, Trump tweeted his support for Flynn's request.
