Trump Pardons His Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Donald Trump has pardoned Michael Flynn, his first national security adviser who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about contacts with a Russian official. Trump announced the long-expected pardon in a tweet. His plea was one of the first major courtroom victories for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who had been appointed seven months earlier.
He has already commuted the sentence of longtime aide Roger Stone, like Flynn, campaign manager Paul Manafort and adviser George Papadopoulos convicted under special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian election interference and links between Trump and Moscow.
Stone was sentenced to more than three years in prison, after being found guilty of obstruction, lying to Congress and witness intimidation. His conviction stands- Flynn had not been sentenced.
