President Trump has pardoned his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who spent years enmeshed in an often bizarre legal war with the government that sprung from the Russia HOAX Investigation.
Trump announced the news on Twitter as Americans prepared to observe the Thanksgiving holiday this week.
The pardon brings an end to a long-running legal odyssey for Flynn, who was the only member of the Trump administration to be charged as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia HOAX investigation.
Flynn, meanwhile, reacted on Twitter with a Bible verse alluding to a holy rescue.
Jeremiah 1:19 🇺🇸
— General Flynn (@GenFlynn) November 25, 2020
19 They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
Trump’s action on Wednesday may open the door to possible clemency for other former Trump advisers who were indicted as part of the Russia investigation, including former campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
