Earlier this month, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee ranking member Elijah Cummings also released documents showing Flynn made almost $68,000 in fees and expenses from Russian-related organizations, including more than $45,000 from RT tied to a December 2015 trip to Moscow where he sat near Russian President Vladimir Putin during the network's 10th anniversary party.
Flynn has also been accused of cooperating with Turkish government officials in order to extradite the exiled Fethullah Gülen from the United States in an irregular manner.He has requested immunity if he testifies before the intelligence committees of the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, his lawyer, Robert Kelner, said on Thursday.
But Kelner said Saturday that the speech paid by Kurtulus was made to an audience of Korean-Americans.
"It doesn't need to be done, you know, by night through stealth at the White House".
"General Flynn certainly has a story to tell", Kelner has said, "And he very much wants to tell it, should circumstances permit". "Would be sad for U.S." tweeted Trump.
Trump weighed in Friday, tweeting that Flynn "should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!"
"It's just not necessary based on what we know now", he said.
The two filings came more than a month after Trump asked Flynn to resign as national security adviser, saying he had misled the vice president about a conversation he had with the Russian ambassador to the USA during the transition. Flynn had indicated to the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he had not discussed the sanctions that had just been imposed by the Obama administration.
CHOCOLATE WITH SPRINKLES: In a drug case, someone is granted immunity in return for their identifying the kingpin, not some guy in the projects selling nickel bags, and so Flynn will be giving up the only perp above him - Trump.

Prior to being fired, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates warned Trump that Flynn had mislead Pence about his conversations with the Russian Ambassador and that Flynn could be compromised by the Russians.
The truth is buried somewhere in classified material that is illegal to disclose.
But when Trump's former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn - who was sacked for lying about his meetings with Russian officials - requested immunity from prosecution in exchange for testimony to the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff said the committee turned the request down.
Schiff says Flynn also didn't initially disclose payments from Russian entities in return for speeches.
Former CIA Director implicates Flynn in kidnapping plot. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, president of Turkey, blamed Gulen for the failed coup attempt against his government.
The lobbying occurred while Flynn was a top Trump campaign adviser.
Flynn has been in discussions with congressional investigators on receiving immunity from "unfair prosecution" in exchange for agreeing to testify about ongoing probes into possible contacts between Trump's election campaign and Russian Federation. The only one now seeking an immunity deal, is Trump's former National Security Advise, not Hillary Clinton.
The Democratic representative also said he believes President Trump is trying to distract attention away from the Russian Federation investigations by slamming reports on the probe as "fake news" and insisting that the real story is leaks to the press about the intelligence-gathering effort.
