Trump Backs Flynn’s Bid For Immunity on Twitter & Calls it a ‘Witch Hunt’

Trump Backs Flynn’s Bid For ImmunityThis morning Trump tweeted in support of former White House National Security Adviser Mike Flynn just one day after it was reported that he would be willing to be interviewed about the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia in exchange for immunity from prosecution. Early Friday morning, he wrote: “Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!” The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Flynn informed the FBI and the House and Senate intelligence committees of his willingness to talk—as long as he won’t be prosecuted. He was forced to resign months ago after it became clear that he misled White House officials about his phone conversations with the Russian ambassador before the inauguration.
