Michael T. Flynn, the national security adviser who resigned in February when reports surfaced that he misled White House officials about whether he discussed sanctions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States or not. He also failed to disclose cash linked to Russia. For fear of being prosecuted, Flynn is seeking immunity in exchange for full testimony. Flynn says he is willing to testify before federal and congressional investigators in their ongoing probe into Russian meddling in the US elections if he is granted immunity. Flynn who reportedly made $1.3 million for lobbying, speeches and other work intentionally left “Russian speaking fees” off initial financial disclosures.
In his resignation letter, he wrote: “Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the vice president-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology.”
