LEGAL/RUSSIA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE/MICHAEL FLYNN: “U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday supported the decision of his former national security adviser to seek immunity from prosecution in exchange for his testimony in congressional probes of possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Retired General Michael Flynn wants protection against ‘unfair prosecution’ if he testifies before the intelligence committees of the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, his lawyer, Robert Kelner, said on Thursday [3-30-17].
‘Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!’ Trump wrote in a tweet.
Senator Angus King, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said it was too soon to discuss immunity for Flynn.
Testimony from Flynn could help shed light on the conversations he had with Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak last year while national security adviser for Trump’s presidential campaign.”
