A new report by One America News sheds light on the strange events surrounding former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Was his guilty plea coerced? Is he expecting a presidential pardon? It seems the answer to both questions may be affirmative.
Newly released evidence casts doubt over Michael Flynn’s guilty plea amid speculation over a possible pardon by the President.
The FBI released a set of materials related to the charges against former White House adviser General Michael Flynn. A transcript of Flynn’s interview with the FBI held on January the 24th, 2017, sheds light on his guilty plea for lying under oath about his conversations with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. This comes amid speculation Flynn could withdraw from his plea deal and seek a presidential pardon.
“The FBI broke standard protocol in the way that they came in and ambushed general Flynn and in the way that they questioned him,” said Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
According to the notes, Flynn was asked if he talked to Kislyak about tampering with the UN vote on Israeli settlements. Flynn said “no.” The general was also asked if he and Kislyak discussed expulsion of Russian diplomats or if he asked Kislyak not to reciprocate. Flynn’s response: he did not remember.
The FBI has claimed at least one of these statements was a lie which Flynn admitted to with his guilty plea. However, some say Flynn could have been tricked into pleading guilty as he was interviewed by none other than Peter Strzok, a demoted FBI agent known for his anti Trump views.
It has been long speculated that Flynn didn’t really do anything wrong, at least not to the extent that should require jail time. By firing his lawyers, it would appear a pardon may be in order for the general.
