On Thursday night, reports broke that revealed retired Gen. Michael Flynn was willing to break his silence when it came to the ongoing Russian scandal as long as he received immunity in the process. The following morning, Donald Trump decided to give his thoughts.

Trump on Flynn

Not long after Donald Trump was elected president last November, he hired Michael Flynn to serve as his National Security Adviser. The decision was quickly met with backlash due to Flynn's controversial history, especially when it comes to his feelings on Islamic terrorism.

However, Flynn didn't last too long in the job after he was exposed for being in communication with high-ranking Russian officials just weeks after the election. When Flynn reportedly lied about issue to Vice President Mike Pence, he was asked to resign. Fast forward to present day and Flynn is in the position where he could soon flip on the White House and spill the beans about Russia and its influence on the election and the Trump administration. As seen during a March 31 post on Twitter, the president has decided to give his thoughts.

"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 Trump wrote on Twitter early Friday morning.

The tweet came just moments after Fox News contributor Tony Shaffer supported Michael Flynn asking for immunity during an interview on "Fox & Friends," saying the retired general would be "stupid" not to push for it.

Next step

While it's unknown what information Michael Flynn could reveal about the administration's relationship with Russia, it appears that Donald Trump is not concerned that it would be damaging in anyway.

Over the last year and a half, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been forced to push back against allegations that he has close ties to the Kremlin, which have only intensified since Inauguration Day. Only time will tell what happens moving forward, but the House Intelligence Committee is currently investigating the issue, and the president is not happy about it.
