Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 31, 2017
UPDATE MARCH 31, 2017, 7:17AM: Trump says Flynn should ask for immunity.
ORIGINAL STORY: President Trump's former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn told the FBI he is willing to testify about the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia in exchange for immunity, according to a Wall Street Journal report.
Flynn resigned in February after it was reported that he misled the White House on his contact with Russian officials, particularly with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, with whom he discussed sanctions before Trump took office.
The Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI and the House and Senate Intelligence committees have not taken his lawyers up on the offer.
