Mike Flynn Dragged After Clip of Him Saying 'Anyone Who Asks for Immunity Probably Committed a Crime' Resurfaces

Trump lashed out at "dems and media" by accusing them of "witch-hunt."

Published March 31, 2017

Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, has seemingly changed his tune when it comes to high-powered people seeking immunity. Although the former Trump cabinet member once suggested immunity is an admission of guilt, his lawyer confirmed that he offered to be interviewed by House and Senate investigators in exchange for immunity from prosecution, reported the Wall Street Journal.

However, a congressional official said investigators were not willing to take Flynn up on his offer. Flynn resigned last month for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his contact with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S.

Investigators are not ready to strike a deal with Flynn until they are sure of the specific dealings between Trump’s campaign and Russian intelligence. 

This action contradicts statements made by Flynn when conservatives implied that Hillary Clinton could be guilty of a crime after the email leak. 

  1. While appearing on 'Meet The Press' during the 2016 election, Flynn made a striking comment regarding immunity

    "The very last thing that John Podesta just said is no individual too big to jail, that should include people like Hillary Clinton," Flynn told Chuck Todd regarding Hillary Clinton's email scandal. "I mean, five people around her have had, have been given immunity, to include her former Chief of Staff. 

    "When you are given immunity, that means that you have probably committed a crime," he added. 


  2. However, president trump appears to have nothing wrong with immunity judging by his supportive tweet sent early friday morning
  3. People on Twitter are calling Flynn out for his hypocrisy and shady tactics
  4. Some even made predictions about how the Trump administration will respond
