We’re getting the first quotes from Mike Flynn’s Lawyer. And it sounds like Flynn wants to testify but not about Trump.
Mr Flynn was sacked in February after misleading the White House about his conversations with a Russian envoy.
“General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit,” said his attorney.
Mr Kelner said he would not comment on the discussions between Mr Flynn and the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, which are investigating claims the Kremlin sought to help Donald Trump win the US presidential election.
The lawyer said the media was awash with “unfounded allegations, outrageous claims of treason, and vicious innuendo”.
“No reasonable person, who has the benefit of advice from counsel, would submit to questioning in such a highly politicized, witch hunt environment without assurances against unfair prosecution,” said the written statement.
For Mr. Keller to say those words about the media is telling. Flynn may want to tell his story and make sure that the methods that he used are safe from prosecution. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. Stay tuned.
