Former-National Security Advisor Mike Flynn’s back on the scene, as he’s attempting to negotiate immunity with House & Senate Intelligence Committees. If the committees were on board with Flynn, he’d be safe from possible charges while providing information on the Team Trump-Russia ordeal.
Flynn Attorney Robert Kelner said Flynn “certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it—should the circumstances permit.”

While Flynn had Kelner pitch the deal to the FBI and House & Senate Intelligence Committees, it seems nobody’s interested as of late.
United States Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) Communications Director Jack Langer claimed Flynn made no offer to swear under oath to the House, but Langer said nothing about Flynn meeting with committee people entailing the aforementioned parlay.
With agreed-upon anonymity, a Congressional aide secretly communicated to the media the Flynn-Senate Committee negotiations do indeed entail immunity.
More Kelner stated, “no reasonable person…would submit to questioning in such a highly politicized, witch hunt environment without assurances against unfair prosecution” and mentioned the committees are considering “claims of treason and vicious innuendo” when meeting with Flynn.
Not only has the FBI looked into the Flynn-Russia situation, House & Senate Intelligence Committees are currently examining the matter while simultaneously sleuthing out Russia’s interference with the 2016 presidential election—and whether or not Team Trump members are connected to the Kremlin.
The FBI’s no stranger to the entire situation. July 2016 was their springboard for pushing a counterintelligence examination of Russia’s involvement with the election and Team Trump members potentially having played a part in it all.
Recently, four Team Trump members have showed a willingness to meet with the committees. Thus far, the Senate Intelligence Committee has requested meetings with 20 individuals amid their investigatory effort(s).
Upon it being discovered Flynn had VP Pence confused on an interaction between him and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak back in Team Trump’s transition time, Flynn was asked to leave his position.
However, Turkish businessman Ekim Alpetkin told the media when Micheal Flynn left Team Trump, the Justice Department labeled Flynn & his firm as foreign agents due to a $530,000 lobbying job involving Turkey—a job performed during Flynn’s time on Team Trump’s campaign-advisory board. However, Alpetkin, who hired Flynn’s company, claimed the Justice Department coerced Flynn and his people to register as such.
