“General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should circumstances permit.” In a statement delivered by his attorney, Mike Flynn has offered to unnest the various layers of his Matryoshka doll, but only if he’s given immunity first. Regardless of what Flynn himself has said in the past, requesting immunity is not necessarily an indicator that one has committed a crime. But it is one hell of an interesting twist for a guy who rose to public prominence with chants of “lock her up” and who, just a few weeks ago, was America’s national security adviser. From the NYT: Michael Flynn Offers to Testify Before Congress in Exchange for Immunity. (Congress has already rejected the offer because the request is premature.)

+ The New Yorker: Could Michael Flynn Turn On Trump?

+ Alex Whiting: Flynn’s public offer to testify for immunity suggests he may have nothing to say. (If nothing else, this administration has provided numerous teachable moments. In the past two weeks, my kids have learned about health care, how a bill becomes a law, what immunity means, and the proper usage of quotation marks. The only bad part is that my 8 year-old daughter has started issuing executive orders.)

+ WaPo: Here’s what we know so far about Team Trump’s ties to Russian interests.

+ And finally, the president has responded to the Flynn news on Twitter: “Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!” (Before this is over, Trump might have to ask for immunity from his tweets.)
