President Donald Trump believes the only reason the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the Democratic Party leaders continue to investigate his possible ties to Russia have nothing more to do with them losing the 2016 presidential election.

The FBI has made it clear that they were looking into allegations that Russia hacked the 2016 election. James Comey, Director of The Fbi, explained that the bureau's probe includes links between those associated with the Trump campaign and Putin's people. Comey said he wants to ascertain what, if any, involvement there was between Trump's presidential campaign and Moscow officials.

Flynn forced to admit he lied

Trump's ex-national security adviser, Michael Flynn, was forced to admit he had lied to Vice President Mike Pence with regard to his meetings and conversations with Sergey Kislyak, Russia's Ambassador to the U.S. – after President Donald Trump's victory.

Retired General, Flynn is now asking for protection if he has to testify before the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees. Flynn is seeking protection against unfair prosecution. Flynn's attorney believes he is being criminally investigated as a result of unfounded public demands.

Trump supports Flynn's request for immunity from prosecution if he decides to testify in front of the intelligence committees about possible connections to the FBI's probes into Russia's involvement in the Trump campaign.

Trump, taking to Twitter, referred to the probe as a “witch hunt” and said it was an excuse for “big election loss” by the Democratic party and mass media.

Investigation by intelligence committees

Flynn's testimony is expected to help bring clarity to what went on and what was talked about with the Kislyak, while he was Trump's national security adviser.
