President Trump Pardons General Michael Flynn- And Democrats are LOSING IT

Flynn

President Donald Trump has issued a Pardon for former national security adviser Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. Flynn was targeted by elements of the FBI in 2016 and plead guilty to the charge of lying to the FBI under questionable circumstances in 2017.

President Trump’s move is logical as Flynn’s lawyer was successful in gaining a writ of mandamus to compel Washington, D.C. federal District Judge Emmett Sullivan to drop the case. The Judge has refused this order and moved to request an en banc session which will drag out proceedings for months.

Sidney Powell has been busy lately.

Flynn is represented by Sidney Powell, who has been very newsworthy lately due to her defense of President Trump in multiple legal challenges to the election. Powell’s arguments for dismissal of the case against Gen. Flynn were supported by the Department of Justice however, Judge Sullivan still refused in a move largely criticized by conservatives.

The Evidence itself calls for a Pardon

The evidence of the FBI’s dubious process were made public months ago by CBS News Correspondent Catherine Herridge.

House Minority Leader Congressman Kevin McCarthy concurred with President Trump via Twitter as well, calling What happened to General Flynn “a national disgrace”.

At the time of General Flynn’s firing President Trump expressed regret regarding the decision.

Since 2017, numerous investigations by journalists and the agents themselves have had doubt that the FBI acted inappropriately.

Andrew McCarthy wrote for The Hill,

“The Department of Justice (DOJ) last week dismissed the prosecution of Michael Flynn, who fleetingly served as President Trump’s first national security adviser. In all the heated commentary over this decision, scant attention has been paid to the most compelling reason for vacating Flynn’s 2017 guilty plea to one count of making false statements to FBI agents: The government wouldn’t have a prayer of convicting Flynn at trial.

Allowing the conviction to stand would have been a travesty. This basic fact, this utter lack of sufficient evidence, is obscured by the DOJ’s heavy reliance on a legal rationale for dropping the case. In its 20-page memorandum in support of dismissal, the DOJ contends that any false statements by Flynn could not have been material because there was no legitimate basis to investigate or interview him. Federal law makes materiality an essential element of a false-statements charge.”

And The Democrats are LIVID

Congressman Jerrold Nadler said in a statement “This pardon is undeserved, unprincipled, and one more stain on President Trump’s rapidly diminishing legacy”

Representative Adam Schiff continued to propagate the Russia hoax in his tweet,

The Conclusion, We Hope

Point Blank: the FBI knew they couldn’t make the charges stick, so they moved to drop the case, Judge Sullivan refused. Sidney Powell won a writ of Mandamus from the 3rd Circuit court of appeals to drop the case, Judge Sullivan refused. And now President Trump has pardoned General Flynn, so that this beleaguered, decorated soldier can finally get on with his life.
