President Trump Backs Michael Flynn’s Request for Immunity, Dem rep raises a problem – WSJ

​Congressman Adam Schiff (D.-Cal.): Before discussing immunity for Flynn, ​

“We should first acknowledge what a grave and momentous step it is for a former national security adviser to the president of the United States to ask for immunity from prosecution,” Mr. Schiff .

​Which as stand-alone statement is indisputable. But context is everything here.

While they are at it, they should think also about the former Secretary of State being declared by the FBI director as "extremely careless​" with national security information kept on computers in her basement. Congress had to swallow that, but this time it’s different?

Put another way, has such carelessness been the norm and we only recently heard about it? Or has the political climate done a very bad turn-around in the last, say, ten years?
