President Trump Says He is ‘Strongly Considering’ a Pardon for General Michael Flynn

President Trump tweeted on Sunday that he is “strongly considering” a presidential pardon for former National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn, as Fox News reports.

In the tweet, President Trump mentioned that the federal charges against General Flynn, for a single count of allegedly lying to federal investigators during the “Russian collusion” investigation, have “destroy[ed] his life and the life of his wonderful family (and many others also),” adding that he is “strongly considering a full pardon!”

Flynn initially pled guilty to a single count of lying to federal authorities, but his defense team has since filed a motion to retract that guilty plea, claiming that investigators acted in bad faith. His sentencing has been delayed on multiple occasions, and the prosecutors have since changed their minds after initially recommending that he be sentenced to probation.
