Donald Trump ‘is planning to pardon his disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn’

Donald Trump is planning to pardon his disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn, Axios reported Tuesday.  

Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about dealings with Russia‘s ambassador before Trump took office.

He sought to withdraw the guilty plea in January, arguing that prosecutors violated his rights and duped him into a plea agreement.

Trump has not been shy about using his pardon power to help political allies and those he believes have been wronged by an out-of-control justice system.  

Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, was charged under former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation that detailed Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

Flynn pleaded guilty twice to lying to the FBI about his conversations before Trump took office with Sergei Kislyak, who was then Russia’s ambassador to the United States, concerning U.S. sanctions imposed on Russia under President Barack Obama.
