  • Trump Reportedly Plans to Pardon Michael Flynn

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 United States election to boost Mr Trump's candidacy.

Flynn will be among a series of pardons that Trump plans to grant before his term in office ends, multiple sources were reported as saying by Axios and the New York Times.

Flynn's secret talks with the Russian ambassador to Washington in December 2016, before Trump was inaugurated, were a cornerstone of the sprawling investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Moscow's meddling in the U.S. election earlier that year.

Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to federal investigators about his Russian contacts, but is widely viewed in conservative circles as the victim of entrapment by the outgoing Obama administration's FBI.

He has since sought to withdraw the plea, arguing prosecutors violated his rights and duped him into a plea agreement. Trump has told confidants of his plan.

Judge Emmet Sullivan, however, did not drop the case, and it is still ongoing.

The Examiner's Daniel Chaitin tweeted after the Axios news story, "Fox News's Gregg Jarrett says just now Michael Flynn "doesn't want a pardon".

Efforts by Trump and the justice department to dismiss the criminal case against Flynn have become mired in lengthy legal battles in the courts. The list of officials also included Joe Biden, the now projected president-elect.
