It seems like everyone involved in Hillary’s ‘Emailgate’ scandal got immunity… why not Mike Flynn?
Michael Flynn, the former National Security Advisor to President Trump, is willing to testify about the Trump campaign’s connection to Russia if he is granted immunity from prosecution.
President Trump tweeted his support because he’s calling the accusations a ‘witch hunt’.
Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!

‘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 tweeted.
Flynn, who resigned as Trump’s security adviser after just 24 days, has sent a request to both the FBI and the House and Senate intelligence committees, saying he would testify if the government guarantees that it would not prosecute him, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The agencies have not yet taken Flynn up on his offer, according to officials with knowledge of the matter.
‘General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit,‘ said Flynn’s attorney, Robert Kelner.
Kelner said no ‘reasonable person’ with legal counsel would answer questions without assurances that he would not be prosecuted, given calls from some members of Congress that the retired lieutenant general should face criminal charges.
