Trump plans to pardon former aide Michael Flynn: media reports

Trump plans to pardon former aide Michael Flynn: media reports”

President Donald Trump is planning to issue a pardon to his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, according to multiple reports.

Trump in March said he was strongly considering a full pardon for Flynn. The Washington Examiner noted that Flynn "pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to FBI investigators about his December 2016 conversations with a Russian envoy".

Flynn withdrew his guilty pleas after he hired Sidney Powell as his attorney, who began to put the government on trial, accusing prosecutors of misconduct.

Axios' Jonathan Swan first reported in an exclusive story Tuesday night that the president "has told confidants he plans to pardon" Flynn, citing "two sources with direct knowledge of the discussions". Should President Trump's legal attempts to overturn the election fail, this may be his final pardon as President of the United States.

Donald Trump fired Michael Flynn (above) just 22 days into his administration.

However, the final report of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller stated there was no evidence that collusion between Trump and Russian Federation took place during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Flynn's case also drew attention to the practice of "unmasking", after the Justice Department declassified a list of Obama-era officials who sought intelligence on Flynn's conversations specifically during the period between Trump's 8 November 2016 election and his swearing-in on 20 January 2017. "She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity", the statement read.Newsmax TV Is Coming for Fox News by Hiring All the Crazies.
