Michael Flynn

Donald Trump reacted to news that former national security adviser Michael Flynn has offered to be interviewed in exchange for immunity in the investigation in the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in a Friday morning tweet which echoed the language put out by Flynn’s lawyer on Thursday night.

The NYT reported:

In a statement on Thursday evening, Mr. Flynn’s lawyer confirmed discussions with the House and Senate intelligence committees about possible testimony by his client. The lawyer, Robert Kelner, did not provide specifics about the terms under which Mr. Flynn would testify, but said that “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 against unfair prosecution.”

“General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should circumstances permit,” the statement said.
