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 Trump’s presidential campaign, and later one of Trump’s top aides in the White House, 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. Flynn’s attorney, Robert Kelner, declined to comment.

Okee dokee – how are the Freepers dealing with the whole “Flynn’s going to testify if he’s given immunity” thingy?
Has he been threatened ?

Maybe he’ll suffer an industrial accident.

The Russians are faking industrial accidents now? I thought shooting and polonium poisoning was more their style.

Wait a minute! Maybe it IS fake news??
Lou Dobbs just had an alert that Flynn has NOT offered to testify for immunity. You were right. Fake news.

Lou Dobbs? How could anyone doubt him!
Flynn lawyer released statement. He is looking for protection

More after the jump. If you didn’t know that Flynn’s getting Russian rubles wasn’t Hillary’s fault, it’ll be a revelation!
Okee dokee – how are the Freepers dealing with the whole “Flynn got paid off by the Russians” thingy?
Justification number one – Hillary is bad!
How much went to the Clintons for the children taken
from Haiti who were then raped, and had their organs
removed before being put in sealed drums???
Did the MSM even cover it?

Fake news. The money was sincerely earned.
I hate it when Russian money is insincerely earned, don’t you?
But the Clintons’ megabucks speeches around the world never raised an eyebrow.

Maybe because they were given after they held office, as opposed to before?
Peanuts compared to what the Clinton Foundation received for our uranium.

Hey Time, here’s a newsflash:
HILLARY CLINTON SOLD THE OFFICE OF SECRETARY OF STATE TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. When you start investigating her treasonous activities, then get back to us on Flynn, m’kay?

Justification number two – nothing to see here! Flynn isn’t National Security Advisor any more, so no backsies!
General Flynn is gone from President Trump’s administration.
Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland should take his concerns to the proper agency.

The flaky ness is not Trump’s. It’s Flynn.

Justification number three – this is all the Democrats’ fault!!
Flynn was a Rat party member and therefore, has no place in the Trump Republican administration.

Elijah Cummings has nothing honest to contribute to anything in government.

Perhaps Cummings can provide documents of how much he has paid in taxes since he joined the elites in congress.

Never. Flynn is a Democrat. If they give him immunity, he will concoct a story in conformance with the Democrat narrative. He is a filthy snake who never should have been on Trump’s team initially.

So – why did Megamind Trump choose such a filthy snake on a plane?
Is The Darnold shit-stupid? Does he trust the wrong people? Is he hiding something himself?
Flynn was a lifelong Democrat. I don’t care if he had some epiphany. For that reason alone the guy was damaged goods.
Plus he was on Turkey’s payroll. Good riddance to bad rubbish. The guy is a douchebag.

Well, he was APPOINTED by a douchebag, so there’s that…
And then – the first cracks in the dam.
I didn’t want to get rid of the Clintons so we could have folks ostensibly on our side pulling the same scams. Two wrongs, as mother used to say, don’t make a right.

Why won’t Trump address this shit? Infuriates me to no end. But he’s in the know. Not me. Just irked.

Because Mr. “I have the best brain, believe me” appointed Flynn? Just a guess.
To think, he was Trump’s biggest cheerleader on the campaign trail. The swamp is so filthy, I don’t see it being drained any time soon.

two wrongs don’t make a right…
Exactly. We knew the swamp is a polluted place. Now we’re learning that many folks only had to dip one toe into the quagmire to be sucked in.
I’m having another thought. The military is all convoluted and interconnected with corporate entities. Is this because so much of what should be done by the military is now contracted out to the private sector?

(only a pawn in their game)
And, for a palate cleanser:
I kind of surprised that guy has any defenders left here on FreeRepublic.
