Trump starts his Pardon Spree on Pre-Holiday Travel-Day hoping it won’t be noticed
“It is my Great Honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a Full Pardon,”—Trump via Tweet
Michael Flynn Pleaded Guilty To Lying About Russia Contact but will not serve time
Michael Flynn’s convoluted legal travails are now over. With this brazen, political pardon, Trump managed to keep at least one of his cronies out of jail. Attempts were made by the Bill Barr justice department to have the case dropped, which would have made an official pardon unnecessary, but those efforts did not come to fruition.
This pardon follows that of Trump’s friend and self-proclaimed “dirty-trickster” Roger Stone Jr., who had been facing down seven felonies, after the Mueller Inquiry led to charges against the outspoken and ultra-partisan Mr. Stone.
Stone had originally pleaded guilty, twice, to lying about a series of conversations with the ambassador of Russia.
Here are some others that Trump has already pardoned:
|Date of Pardon||Name||Sentencing date|
|August 25, 2017||Joe Arpaio||October 5, 2017|
|March 9, 2018||Kristian Saucier||August 19, 2016|
|April 13, 2018||Lewis “Scooter” Libby||June 14, 2007|
|May 24, 2018||Jack Johnson||September 14, 1920|
It is unlikely that he will try pardon himself, but with Trump, as anybody paying attention would know by now, anything is possible. Stay tuned
