Flynn was targeted simply because he was on Trump’s campaign team. He was a victim of malicious prosecution by Obama’s FBI.
President Donald Trump on Wednesday pardoned his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who had twice pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI during the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
Trump’s pardon, which could be the first of several after he lost the 2020 presidential election to Democrat Joe Biden, drew condemnation from Democrats and other critics.
A retired Army general, Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about interactions he had with Russia’s ambassador to the United States in the weeks leading up to Trump’s inauguration in January 2017.
He has since sought to withdraw the plea, arguing that prosecutors violated his rights and duped him into a plea agreement. His sentencing has been deferred several times.
“It is my Great Honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a Full Pardon. Congratulations to @GenFlynn and his wonderful family, I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving!” Trump wrote on Twitter, a day before the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.
Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, who told a court in September she personally asked Trump not to pardon her client, said the pardon was “bittersweet” because Flynn was innocent
The DOJ disclosed documents proving that Flynn did not commit any crimes. As a matter of fact, one of the main instigators, Peter Strzrok, knew that there was exculpatory evidence but chose to suppress it.
It was a politically-based prosecution. It had no basis in fact and was pursued only because Trump won the election. The Obama regime violated the constitution and broke the law in an effort to undermine the electorate.
The DOJ (Willam Barr) finally dropped the bogus charges against Flynn.

Every shitbird in the Obama regime, including Barky, should be indicted for their crimes.
