Trump's planning on pardoning Michael Flynn

President Trump has told confidants he plans to pardon his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts, two sources with direct knowledge of the discussions tell Axios.

The big picture: Flynn's pardon would be the culmination of a four-year political and legal saga that began with the FBI's investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government in the 2016 election

3. There's still plenty more they can get him on once Fat Bastard is gone.

As I understand it, he has only been charged with a fraction of his crimes. Get him on other stuff, and throw the book at the traitor.

10. I would bet it's because Obama warned him off Flynn...

That simple I believe.

15. Sounds like it. I really believe, too, that OBAMA's mocking him tipped him to run.

8. It could backfire on him

Trump will pardon Michael Flynn, strengthening potential obstruction charges against himself for witness tampering in dangling pardons to witnesses who didnít cooperate fully with Robert Muellerís investigation into Trumpís ties to Russia.

12. He's not exactly a bastion of good judgment.

He's sure to fuck this up just like he's done with so many things.

9. Two generals... Flynn & Arnold

Two generals... Flynn & Arnold

Gen Michael Flynn and Gen Benedict Arnold both started out as patriots who served their country well.

Arnold died a traitor in England.

He was not lucky enough to have a Donald Trump on his side.

11. I suspect there will...

...be a lot more pardons.

One, those who stayed loyal to him, not because of loyalty, but to rub it in the nose who turned on him.

And I still think he'll resign at some point with a deal with Pence pardoning him.
