BREAKING: Senate Rejects Flynn’s Request For Immunity
There’s much more to this story I’m sure of it…
The Senate Intelligence Committee has rejected Michael Flynn’s request for immunity from prosecution in exchange for his testimony into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election, congressional sources told NBC News.
President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor’s lawyer was told the move was “wildly preliminary” and “not on the table” at this point, a senior congressional official told NBC. It does not necessarily rule out immunity at a later date, since the Senate investigation is ongoing.
Flynn, who resigned after only weeks on the job, also offered to speak to the Justice Department in exchange for protection from prosecution, according to NBC. At this time, there is no indication that Flynn is admitting guilt to any crimes. More
People are forgetting that Flynn ran the DIA under Obama. He was senior IC. Don't assume immunity inquiries pertain to brief Trump tenure.
