Trump brands Russia probe 'witch hunt' as ex-aide seeks immunityPresident Donald Trump on Friday blasted a probe into his team’s ties to Russia as an opposition “witch hunt,” defending his former top aide Michael Flynn’s decision to ask for immunity in the case. Trump’s ex-national security advisor, whose links to Russia are one focus of the sprawling investigation, has sought protection in exchange for his testimony to the FBI and congressional committees. Trump nevertheless encouraged Flynn’s move in a tweet that appeared to lay down a challenge.
