President Trump is fully supporting his former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, and he’s holding nothing back in his tweets.
The Hill reports:
President Trump is defending former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s offer to testify in ongoing probes of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election in exchange for legal immunity.
Trump wrote on Twitter early Friday morning that the investigation had become “a witch hunt,” echoing language used by his former campaign adviser’s attorney.
Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!

Flynn’s lawyer told reporters that he has a story to tell, and it’s the opinion of President Trump that he needs to be protected from the “witch hunt” that will inevitably ensue as the process unfolds.
“General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should circumstances permit,” Robert Kelner told The Journal.
“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,” he added.
