Amateur president Donald Trump is trying to deflect from the news that disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has asked for immunity in exchange for testifying in the FBI’s continuing investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
In response, Trump wrote on Twitter that Flynn should seek immunity in order to protect himself from a “witch hunt” being carried out by Democrats and the media.
Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!

Again, Trump is claiming Democrats suffered a ‘big election loss’ when that’s not true at all. He’s literally blaming Hillary Clinton who is not the President.
Flynn was an adviser to Trump’s campaign and his first national security adviser before being forced to resign less than a month after Inauguration Day amid reports that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence and others about the nature of conversations he had had with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Flynn spoke with Kislyak and met him for about 20 minutes at Trump Tower in December. Just one week later, Flynn registered with the Justice Department as a foreign agent for $530,000 worth of lobbying work he did before the 2016 election that “could be construed to have principally benefited the Republic of Turkey.”
As one Intelligence Committee member put it, there’s a “pattern of deceit” with Flynn.
But to Trump, it’s all about his election win. It’s always about him. We recall Flynn leading “Lock her up!” chants at a rally for Trump, then said that if he did ‘one tenth’ of what Hillary Clinton did, he’d be in jail.
Last year, Trump attacked Hillary Clinton — he repeatedly referred to as ‘crooked’ — after several of her staffers were given immunity deals in exchange for cooperating with the House Oversight Committee’s investigation into her private email server. Trump also attacked Clinton’s aides repeatedly on the campaign trail for seeking immunity in exchange for their testimony in the investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was serving as Secretary of State.
“The reason they get immunity is because they did something wrong, if they didn’t do anything wrong, they don’t think in terms of immunity,” Trump said last September at a rally in Wisconsin.
At another rally in Florida the day before, Trump asked, “If you are not guilty of a crime, what do you need immunity for? Right.”
He tweeted to Clinton in October, “ATTN: @HillaryClinton – Why did five of your staffers need FBI IMMUNITY?!”

In September, Flynn said, “When you are given immunity, that means you probably committed a crime.”
