Flynn Testimony Offer

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
