President Trump plans to pardon Michael Flynn: Reports

News & Politics

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

What are the details?

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.” Swan added that sources also said “Flynn will be part of a series of pardons that Trump issues between now and when he leaves office.”

Flynn has spent years battling the government in court, exhausting his resources and even being forced to sell his home after becoming a target of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian collusion claims. 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 sought to withdraw his guilty plea and claimed his innocence after obtaining a new legal team led by attorney Sidney Powell, who uncovered a cache of exculpatory evidence, and the Department of Justice moved to drop its prosecution of the retired Army lieutenant general.

But Judge Emmet Sullivan, who is presiding over the case, has refused to let it go and continues his fight to carry through with prosecution.

The Examiner’s Daniel Chaitin tweeted after the Axios news story, “Fox News’s Gregg Jarrett says just now Michael Flynn ‘doesn’t want a pardon. He wanted full exoneration and the case dismissed.’ He goes on to say ‘it’s clear’ the presiding judge, Emmet Sullivan, is trying to run out the clock till Biden takes office and says Trump should pardon.”

Fox News also reportedly “confirmed” the president’s plans.

Anything else?

CNN cited three sources in reporting White House discussion of a possible Flynn pardon, adding, “However, those sources cautioned that Trump could change his mind about making such a move. There have been discussions about pardoning multiple people in the President’s orbit.”

  1. Trump needs to make sure that Biden is prosecuted for money Laundering, bribery, influence peddling and a host of other crimes before Biden takes office. Once Biden takes office the American people are screwed and all his crimes will go unpunished, unlike Michael Flynn. Nobody is above the law, including all of the far left Democratic Party members, especially Pelosi, Schumer, AOC and everyone else. They should be taken out and horse whipped behind the Capitol Building for being traitors.

  2. Anyone with a brain knows that Joe Biden and his son are corrupt. They also know that the entire impeachment of Donald Trump was a fraud and that Democrats actually committed the crimes they were blaming on our President Donald Trump!
