Executive Grant of Clemency for General Michael T. Flynn

Washington, DC...President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency granting a Full Pardon to General Michael T. Flynn. The President has pardoned General Flynn because he should never have been prosecuted. An independent review of General Flynn’s case by the Department of Justice—conducted by respected career professionals—supports this conclusion. In fact, the Department of Justice has firmly concluded that the charges against General Flynn should be dropped. This Full Pardon achieves that objective, finally bringing to an end the relentless, partisan pursuit of an innocent man.

General Flynn should not require a pardon. He is an innocent man. Even the FBI agents who interviewed General Flynn did not think he was lying. Multiple investigations have produced evidence establishing that General Flynn was the victim of partisan government officials engaged in a coordinated attempt to subvert the election of 2016. These individuals sought to prevent Donald Trump from being elected to the Presidency, to block him from assuming that office upon his election, to remove him from office after his inauguration, and to undermine his Administration at every turn.

The prosecution of General Flynn is yet another reminder of something that has long been clear: After the 2016 election, individuals within the outgoing administration refused to accept the choice the American people had made at the ballot box and worked to undermine the peaceful transition of power. These efforts were enabled by a complicit media that willingly published falsehoods and hid inconvenient facts from public view, including with respect to General Flynn. They amounted to a brazen assault on our democracy and a direct attack on our fundamental political values.

While today’s action sets right an injustice against an innocent man and an American hero, it should also serve as a reminder to all of us that we must remain vigilant over those in whom we place our trust and confidence. The people who sit atop our intelligence and law enforcement agencies have tremendous power to affect the lives of their fellow citizens. The American people must always take care to scrutinize their actions, to hold them accountable, and to ensure that they use their immense power to uphold the rule of law rather than to harass, persecute, and jail their political opponents in pursuit of partisan political agendas.

Happy Thanksgiving to General Flynn and his family, and thank you all for your great service to our Nation!

Yet Flynn confessed twice.
Trump will go down in history as one of the worst presidents. He couldn't live up to all his promises.
His supporters think he fulfilled all that he said he would do.
While being morally deficient.

Everyone in a fleecing Flynn was a draft dodger, non military participant, whatever you Libtards want to call him. Flynn is and will be a decorated Warrior, which none of these hacks are, being an ex combat Army guy, I will stand by Flynn anytime over the likes of Adam Schiff, FUC, Comey are any of the rest of the swamp dummies!

    So my question is this. How will those involved in this injustice be held accountable now that a pardon has been given?

    Flynn met with Russians to tell them that trump would lift the sanctions imposed by the US on Russia for interfering in our 2016 election. When Homeland Security/FBI questioned him about it he lies to them. When VP Pence asked him about it he lied to Pence. It is a sorry deed to pardon a guy who tries to double deal, under the table , issues of national security. He admitted it to the court twice. Flynn disgraced his reputation, his country , and honor..

He may have been pardoned but he is still a convicted felon, and is the same as pleading guilty.

    Not exact. It looks like a confirmation of his guilt, but the pardon removes all penalties as if the crime never happened.

    Flynn and Trump will now go to work selling off as many of our national security secrets as they can. Trump owes 400 million he's personally guaranteed to Duestch Bank, 100 million to the IRS and 100s of millions elsewhere. He has no income. His real estate investments are junk. The only marketable asset he has is knowledge of our security secrets. How many of you idiots who made him president think he would have any qualms about selling out our country to save his ass?
