Trump says Flynn right to ask for immunity

Donald Trump and Michael Flynn

But Flynn is not the only Trump associate to have had contacts with Russian Federation during the campaign.

The object of the Left's game is to nullify Trump's presidency, whether by impeachment or withering rebuke. It's a strategy that may be making the challenges more intractable by the hour.

Former national security advisor Michael Flynn - wants to tell **his** story - but only with immunity.

"The meeting next week with China will be a very hard one in that we can no longer have massive trade deficits..." He was sacked after news reports revealed that he'd misled the White House about conversations he'd had with the Russian ambassador.

"It is deeply disturbing to have a President in the first 100 days to be embroiled in what may be a scandal", said David Gergen, a veteran presidential adviser for multiple presidents and a CNN political analyst.

Flynn's lawyer, while not confirming the Wall Street Journal report, said later Thursday that "has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit".

In a statement on Thursday, Flynn's lawyer confirmed discussions with the House and Senate Intelligence Committees about possible testimony by Flynn.

Mr Trump said that Mr Flynn was right to ask for immunity, accusing Democrats of orchestrating a "witch hunt". Trump wrote on Friday morning.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters he was not concerned that Mr Flynn could provide information that could be harmful to the administration.

The Russian government has denied the allegations and denied that it hacked emails of Democratic groups and released information to tip the election toward Trump, who has called for better US relations with Moscow.

The U.S. government has said that RT, which receives Kremlin funding, is part of an array of propaganda outlets that help popularize a pro-Russian perspective through the media. Flynn had this to say about immunity.

Ryan said there's no doubt that a grant of congressional immunity can negatively affect a simultaneous criminal investigation.

However the comments by Farkas appeared to indicate however that she was anxious that the information could be buried by Trump officials, not that she wanted it leaked. The FBI was also investigating the matter at the time. That same day, Trump took to Twitter to voice his support of Flynn's request.

Trump would not comment further when asked about Flynn during a White House meeting with USA manufacturers. "He thinks that he should go up there and do what he has to do to get the story out".

WELNA: Now, the committees in Congress - the intelligence committees of both the House and Senate have not agreed to immunity yet. A Democratic source said that Democrats on the intelligence committee are resistant to the offer.

When asked whether the President thought that Mike Flynn was guilty of a crime, Mr Spicer said "I think he believes that Mike Flynn should go testify".

Since July, the FBI has been conducting a counterintelligence investigation into Russia's interference in the election and possible coordination with Trump associates. The White House isn't anxious about Flynn revealing anything that damaging to the President or his senior staff and they don't believe any laws were broken. And they want to hear about that first.

"I think he's been treated very, very unfairly by the media - as I call it, the fake media, in many cases", Trump said in a press conference on Wednesday reported by The Hill.

And this kind of recalls the Watergate hearings from 44 years ago when a White House lawyer named John Dean agreed to testify.

Thank you for reading and relying on TulsaWorld.com for your news and information. One was filed while he was still in the administration. "I've never seen behavior this weird on the part of the chairman". He's professor of law at George Washington University.

A former U.S. military intelligence chief, Flynn was generously paid to attend a gala of Russia's RT television in late 2015, where he sat with President Vladimir Putin, raising suspicions about his ties with Moscow.

On his new disclosure, Mr Flynn said only that he personally earned compensation in excess of 5,000 dollars from Inovo BV.

"Well, it doesn't look good", Chaffetz told Fox News on Friday.

That controversy deepened on Friday following reports in U.S. media that two White House officials gave the Republican congressman the classified information. "We're just trying to get to the facts". That should have been done last year when the work was performed, not this year after it was already public.

A prominent member of the House Freedom Caucus warned Trump to be careful.

"I think it's really a sad thing he was treated so badly".

While Trump has plenty of troubles at home, threats are also stirring overseas. He is willing to say anything about the ties the president's administration had with Russian Federation.
