Flynn has hinted that he would be willing to be interviewed in exchange for a grant of immunity from prosecution.
Flynn was an adviser to Trump’s presidential campaign, and later, one of Trump’s top White House aides as national security adviser. As the Wall Street Journal reports, he was privy to sensitive foreign policy deliberations and directly involved in discussions about the possibility of lifting sanctions the Obama administration had imposed on Russia.
