FILE - In this Feb. 11, 2014 file photo, then-Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. As a young man, Flynn used to go door to door luring Democrats out of their homes, onto buses and into polling stations when his mother, Helen Flynn, was running for secretary of state in his native Rhode Island. Described in a 1982 Christian Science Monitor report as an “antiabortionist mother of nine,” Helen Flynn instilled in her son an interest in civic duty but also, a more conservative brand of Democratic politics that the now-retired three-star general says no longer exists.

One committee reportedly declined Flynn's request for immunity in the Russia investigation


UPDATE MARCH 31, 2017 12:13PM: The Senate Intelligence Committee has reportedly turned down former national security advisor Michael Flynn’s request for immunity in exchange for his testimony in the panel’s investigation into Russian interference in the election, according to NBC.

The committee is not receptive to the offer "at this time," according to NBC's Kasie Hunt.

NBC News Capitol Hill reporter Kasie Hunt tweeted about the development.

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. 

Mike Pence once said he won't eat with women other than his wife. Shots were fired.
