What follows is taken from an Inquisitr Online article published 14 hours ago and based on a Wall Street Journal story.
Flynn, who was fired from his post after it came out that he lied about contact with the Russian ambassador on the day President Obama announced sanctions against Russia, is now reportedly turning on Trump to testify about the potential collusion with Russia. A report from the Wall Street Journal claimed that Flynn is offering to testify in exchange for immunity from prosecution — a sign that the investigation into Trump’s alleged ties to Russia could end up with criminal charges for those involved.
And that Wall Street Journal blurb dated yesterday March 30, 2017 is copied below, and itself is based on “officials with knowledge of the matter”

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.
This abrupt little appeal to the authority of “officials”/experts sure was labour intensive: 3 writers wrote 4.5 lines
I’ve wondered for some time about the firing of Mr. Flynn national security adviser to President Trump; so his offer to voluntarily give evidence to a U.S. congressional comity investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election for president seemed significant when it appeared before today in a television caption courtesy of my local sports and weather broadcaster without explanation. Until this morning’s Drudge Report header indicating that Mr. Flynn had volunteered to give evidence in exchange for immunity I can’t recall seeing the Flynn offer online especially the immunity pledge which would have begged my attention. When the Drudge link wouldn’t open, I did a Flynn search and got the headers about the immunity offer I couldn’t open in the Drudge file. But all three results at the top of my search results page were offered by three large Canadian media organizations. The times of their publication are interesting because The Globe and Mail item claims to have been published one day ago; though I’m certain that had I seen the word “immunity” one day ago I certainly would have noticed. Again all I recall is that television caption before today March 31, 2017 indicating that Flynn offered to give evidence. If the word “immunity” had caught my attention then I’d have assumed that Mr. Flynn had done something he shouldn’t have, maybe at the behest of President Trump.

Online I’ve read that Mr. Woodward thinks that leakers of the masked could go to jail and Mr. Bernstein thinks President Trump could be removed from office because of information surreptitiously gleaned by leakers’ associates.
And ten hours ago, and 4 hours ago; thank’s to Mr Lebedev’s ever generous British media group, the Independent:
John Schindler, a security expert and former counterintelligence officer, said that if the US President was to face an indictment over allegations his campaign team colluded with Russia to disrupt the presidential election, it could put an end to his presidency.
Some years ago I was surprised to hear that Americans and Russians were sleeping together in outer space, surprised because for all of my life I’d been taught to fear the coming onslaught from the east, taught at school and even from the pulpit.
One of the worst things that ever happened was that animal that Russia sent into space, then there was the Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin, Kruschev’s shoe, then the Cuban missile crisis. But without anyone saying when it started I had to wake up and get used to Russia and the U.S.A. becoming friends in space. I still think that its strange, and no one ever tries to explain it, or how it happened. Now Russia is again enemy number one, like I learned in school and at church. Everyone wants to know why certain American officials have been talking to their Russian counterparts. It’s really funny; I ‘ve been seeing photos on-line of Ms. Clinton ecstatically enjoying comrade Putin’s company, and even Mr. Schumer seems also to have enjoyed the society of Mr. Putin and cohorts. But evidence for Schumer’s and Clinton’s paling it up with Russians were photos and we all know what can be done with photo shop: “a picture paints a thousand words”. But now Russians are unambiguously the enemy. The FBI and CIA are on to them. Some people say people who’ve been friendly with Russians should be charged with treason. And the North Koreans have got a bomb to turn the U.S.A. into cinders and there’s Iran, and ISIS says they’ll conquer us all: they even say they’re heading to Rome. Still, Russia and the U.S.A. have yet to cancel their extra terrestrial friendship.
