Trump Says He Is Considering Pardoning Ex-Adviser Michael Flynn

Post by TrueTexan »

With all the shit going on we know have this.
President Donald Trump on Sunday said he is “strongly considering” pardoning his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, suggesting that Flynn was unfairly targeted and prosecuted.

“So now it is reported that, after destroying his life & the life of his wonderful family (and many others also), the FBI, working in conjunction with the Justice Department, has ‘lost’ the records of General Michael Flynn,” Trump tweeted. “How convenient. I am strongly considering a Full Pardon!”

Trump, whose complaint was fired off within minutes of several other unrelated complaints and concerns, didn’t expand on what he meant by Flynn’s missing records.

Last month, Attorney General William Barr ordered outside prosecutors to review Flynn’s criminal case, raising speculation that Barr may be seeking a more lenient sentence for him. Senior Department of Justice officials in February walked back federal prosecutors’ sentencing recommendation for longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone after Trump publicly called their proposed sentence a “miscarriage of justice.”

Flynn had pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russian officials prior to Trump taking office. He filed a motion to withdraw his guilty plea in January, however, after federal prosecutors recommended he serve up to six months in prison. Flynn’s lead counsel, Sidney Powell, accused the government of going back on a promise, made as part of his plea deal, to give him probation instead of prison.

Of course he is! Nobody should be even mildly surprised by this...and now is the perfect time for that and other nefarious moves instead of taking care of a nation terrified of plague as deadly, if not deadlier than the Spanish Flu--that killed his own grandfather at 49.

Or.... he is trying to get people talking about something besides COVID?

Not surprised, right wing media will say Flynn was a victim of vengeful Democratic prosecutors. And the Victim in Chief in the WH is their hero again.

What's that you say? We gave a criminal the power to pardon his criminal conspirators and he is now pardoning his criminal conspirators? Say it ain't so!
