Trump Tweets Raise Speculation About Potential Flynn Pardon
By ERIC TUCKER and JILL COLVIN
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is tweeting his support for his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, raising speculation that a pardon may be coming.
Trump's tweets Thursday come as Flynn's lawyers released internal FBI documents to bolster their claim the FBI was trying to entrap him. Trump has long said he is considering pardoning Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in 2017, and spent Wednesday night and Thursday morning retweeting supportive statements and a video Flynn tweeted of an American flag.
Trump tweeted, “What happened to General Michael Flynn, a war hero, should never be allowed to happen to a citizen of the United States again!”
