Indications are that the Senate Intelligence Committee does not currently intend to offer Michael Flynn immunity from prosecution in exchange for his testimony on the congressional probe into Russia’s activities concerning the 2016 election.
Chris Jansing took a report from Kasie Hunt on MSNBC Live today, and said that the panel is “not receptive” to the offer put forward by the former National Security Adviser to President Trump. According to Hunt’s congressional sources, committee members have spoken with Flynn’s lawyer and told him that any immunity offer would be “wildly preliminary” and is currently “not on the table.”
Hunt acknowledged that the investigation is in its earliest phases and that an offer might be made in the future, though the committee’s current view is that they are “not receptive” to an immunity deal at the moment.
