AXIOS – President Trump has told confidants he plans to pardon his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts, two sources with direct knowledge of the discussions tell Axios.
Sources with direct knowledge of the discussions said Flynn will be part of a series of pardons that Trump issues between now and when he leaves office.
Flynn’s lawyer Sidney Powell acknowledged at a hearing in September that she had spoken to Trump recently and had requested that he not issue a pardon. It’s unclear what discussions Powell and the president have had since then.
Trump’s pardon of Flynn would take the matter out of the hands of the courts and of a Biden-controlled Justice Department.
If Trump is to lose this election, then a pardon of Flynn would be a must. The truth is it’s absolutely ridiculous that this saga has continued on for this long considering that the DOJ has officially dropped the charges. But without a pardon, Biden’s DOJ would no doubt try and continue the prosecution against Flynn, seizing on the objections of the corrupt Judge Sullivan, and that would just unthinkable.
Trump must pardon Flynn. It’s time to end this.
