The US Congress’ Senate Intelligence Committee has reportedly turned down Michael Flynn’s request for immunity from prosecution in exchange for his testimony.

Senators want to grill President Trump’s former security adviser to the president over Russia’s alleged meddling in last year’s US election.

But Flynn’s lawyer, who issued a statement on Thursday saying his client has a story to tell but needs to guard against ‘‘unfair prosecution, has now apparently been told by senior congressional officials that immunity is not currently on the table.

Earlier, via Twitter, President Trump backed his former security’s advisers demand and accused Democrats of orchestrating a ‘‘witch hunt’‘

Flynn was sacked in February after misleading the White House, in particular US Vice-President Mike Pence about his conversations with Moscow’s envoy to Washington.
