Responding to questions over President Trump’s early-morning tweet, Press Secretary Sean Spicer told the White House press briefing on Friday that Trump “believes that Mike Flynn should go testify.”
Here is the tweet reporters asked about:
Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 31, 2017
Spicer said the President “thinks [Flynn] should go up there and do what he has to do to get the story out.”
ABC News‘ White House correspondent, Jonathan Karl, pressed Spicer, pointing out that Trump has claimed in the past that only the guilty asked for immunity.
“I think that the underlying point you’re missing Jonathan, respectfully, is that what [Trump’s] asking is ‘go testify,'” Spicer said. “Go get it out there. Do what you have to do to get there and tell Congress, and tell everyone exactly what we’ve been saying for a long time.”
Spicer also reiterated the uniform denial from high-ranking intelligence officials that there is any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence at this time.
