Donald trump and Michael Flynn during the election campaign

The President of the United States Donald trump today endorsed the decision of his former national security Advisor Michael Thomas Flynn sought immunity from prosecution. Instead, Flynn wants to present a report to Congress about their possible links with Russia during the presidential campaign. About it reports Reuters.

“Retired General Michael Flynn wants to avoid “unjust accusations” in court on the condition that he report to the intelligence committees of the Senate and house of representatives,” – said yesterday his lawyer Robert Kellner.

“Mike Flynn needs to assert immunity,” wrote trump on his Twitter feed – “after all is the ordinary “witch hunt” overblown by the media and Democrats!”

In turn, a member of the intelligence Committee in the Senate Angus king says it’s too early to talk about such immunity.

Testimony of a retired General can shed some light on his contacts with the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak.

We will remind, on November 18, 2016 President-elect of the United States Donald trump offered Michael Flynn post of national security adviser. January 20, 2017 Flynn was appointed to this position, however, on 13 February, resigned after the scandal over his lies about the discussion of anti-Russian sanctions-Russian Ambassador to US Kislyak. The resignation was accepted by President trump.

Congressional committees and the FBI are still studying a version of the Russian intervention in the us election campaign 2016 Russia denies allegations that the hacked emails of the Democrats and used the information to help Trump the election. The new US President rejects assumptions about the relations with Moscow as “an acid reaction of the Democrats in their defeat.” Senator Angus king does not get tired to criticize such statements trump. “There is no doubt that the Russians attempted to interfere with our elections,” repeats the king.
