REPORT: President Trump to Pardon General Michael Flynn
President Donald Trump is planning on issuing a presidential pardon to former US National Security Advisor and US Army lieutenant general Michael Flynn, according to reporting from Axios on Tuesday night.
Axios sources two officials within the White House who state that Flynn will be pardoned within the coming months. President Trump is contesting the final outcome of the 2020 presidential election in court.
Flynn was ensnared in an FBI plot to criminalize diplomacy he conducted as incoming National Security Director in 2016 and 2017. He was ultimately charged with process crimes for allegedly lying to the FBI in interrogations about his duties. The DOJ recently withdrew the criminal case against the retired general, citing the considerable evidence of FBI corruption, unlawful surveillance, and partisan bias in the case.
Documents detailing the FBI’s political investigation into Trump’s first National Security Advisor revealed investigators openly attacked Flynn for political, as opposed to law enforcement, purposes.
However, left-wing Judge Emmet Sullivan still refuses to dismiss the criminal charges against General Flynn, even without a prosecution. The judge has continued a “zombie prosecution” against Flynn, possibly in hopes of getting a Democratic Justice Department to resume the case against the career military officer for manufactured process crimes.
A full pardon of Flynn would represent justice for a man maliciously targeted by political interests within the so-called US “deep state.”
