Immunity

Before the 2016 election news spread that Hillary Clinton had used a private email account for personal matters while standing as Secretary of State. During a high-profile media inquiry, there were debates as to whether or not Clinton should have received immunity for the actions during her presidency. Later, at a campaign rally, Trump said of Hillary ‘Her aides took the Fifth Amendment and her ringleaders were given immunity,’ the crowd booed in response. ‘And if you’re not guilty of a crime, what do you need immunity for, right?’ But then in 2017, Trump tweeted: ‘Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!’ (Getty)
