Mike Flynn has offered to talk to the FBI and the intelligence committees of both the House and Senate regarding what he knows about potential ties between Russia and the Trump campaign—provided he's given immunity from prosecution, the Wall Street Journal reports. The Journal cites anonymous officials close to the situation. If Flynn is indeed seeking immunity, he may believe he's in legal trouble. However, neither the FBI nor the intelligence committees have taken Flynn up on his offer yet. Flynn is President Trump's former national security adviser. He was forced to resign after admitting he wasn't truthful with White House officials about phone calls with the Russian ambassador. (More Michael Flynn stories.)
