Roger Stone Says Flynn’s Request for Immunity ‘Odd,’ Calls for Special Prosecutor

The self-proclaimed “agent provocateur” said that he was ready and willing to testify to Congress on the Russia investigation.

Famed political operative Roger Stone, in an appearance on The View on Friday, called former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s request for immunity “odd.”

Stone made it clear that he was willing and “anxious” to testify to Congress on the investigation into the Trump campaign’s connections to Russian intelligence.

Comedian Joy Behar asked why Flynn was requesting immunity in exchange for his testimony to Congress.

“That is odd,” Stone responded. “It does seem strange to me, but I’m not General Flynn’s lawyer.”

Stone also said that he “would welcome a special prosecutor” to continue the investigation. “I think the president should pick the right woman to do that,” he said to applause.

Behar told Stone to relay that message to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
