During these trying months, at least one perversion of justice appears that it will finally be rectified.
Reports are coming in that President Donald Trump is telling his closest associates that he will pardon Michael Flynn.
This is good news, as Flynn was unfairly targeted by Democrats in an attempt to push the Russian interference story which has been debunked.
This could be the first of many pardons issued by President Trump.
Axios has more on Flyn's potential pardon:
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.
Sources with direct knowledge of the discussions said Flynn will be part of a series of pardons that Trump issues between now and when he leaves office.
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.
The retired lieutenant general is viewed by many Trump supporters as a victim of political retaliation by the Obama administration.
Flynn's lawyers and members of conservative media have accused the FBI of entrapping him and cited his case as part of a broader campaign to discredit the Russia probe.
Earlier this year, Trump commuted the sentence of Roger Stone, another associate charged in the Mueller investigation who the president complained had been unfairly targeted in a political witch hunt.
This pardon was certainly to be expected.
President Trump has said before that Flynn's life was destroyed all for a witch hunt that turned up nothing.
Reuters has more:
Flynn, a retired Army general, pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about interactions he had with Russia’s ambassador to the United States in the weeks before Trump took office. He has since sought to withdraw the plea, arguing prosecutors violated his rights and duped him into a plea agreement.
Flynn was one of several former Trump aides to plead guilty or be convicted at trial in former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. election to boost Trump’s candidacy.
Trump in March said he was strongly considering a full pardon for Flynn. He said the FBI and Justice Department had “destroyed” Flynn’s life and that of his family.
