Trump tweets raise speculation about potential Flynn pardon

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is tweeting his support for his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, raising speculation that a pardon may be coming. Trump’s tweets Thursday come after Flynn’s lawyers released internal FBI documents to bolster their claim the FBI was trying to entrap him. Trump has long said he is considering pardoning Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI in 2017 about his conversations with the Russian ambassador. Trump tweeted, “What happened to General Michael Flynn, a war hero, should never be allowed to happen to a citizen of the United States again!” Flynn was among the first of the president’s aides charged in the Russia investigation.
