US ex-national security adviser asks for immunity to testify on Russia
President Donald Trump’s ex-national security adviser, Michael Flynn, wants immunity to testify on alleged Russian election meddling, his lawyer says.
Robert Kelner says his client “has a story to tell”, but needs to guard against “unfair prosecution”.
Mr Trump said that Mr Flynn was right to ask for immunity, accusing Democrats of orchestrating a “witch hunt”.
Congress is investigating the allegations, with one senator warning of Kremlin “propaganda on steroids”.
Mr Flynn was sacked in February after misleading the White House about his conversations with a Russian envoy.
