Michael Flynn's family asks Trump to pardon him

  • National Security Advisor Michael Flynn arrives prior to a joint news conference between Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House in Washington DC

President Donald Trump's legal team is ready to attack former National Security Adviser and campaign surrogate Michael Flynn if he accuses the president or senior aides of wrongdoing in Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe, according to a WaPo report.

Joseph Flynn - brother of former presidential national security adviser Michael Flynn, who recently pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation - demanded a pardon for his brother on Tuesday.

The approach would mark a sharp departure from Trump's generally sympathetic approach toward Flynn, 58, a retired Army lieutenant general.

As part of his guilty plea, Flynn has agreed to fully cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged Russian interference in last year's race for the White House as well as whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with what US intelligence officials have described as an "influence campaign" aimed at bolstering Trump. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION.

Russian Opposition Leader Navalny Barred from Elections
On Monday she said the "election is the only way to change something, and boycotting them is inefficient and harmful". Sobchak has denied working with Putin's government to bar Navalny from running for president.

Mueller's team is reportedly looking at emails sent from Flynn's lobbying group to Rohrabacher thanking the congressman for his role in the meeting.

The newspaper also reported that Trump's legal team is privately saying that Flynn will be unable to point Mueller's team to evidence of criminal acts by Trump or other campaign officials because documents turned over to the special counsel contain no evidence of a criminal conspiracy.

"What he did wasn't wrong, what he did in terms of the information he saw", Trump said at a press conference after Flynn's resignation. A pardon would strip Flynn of his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, meaning he could be forced to testify against Trump, Jared Kushner or others who are under Mueller's lens. "I said it, and maybe he's listening".

Still, Trump has not ruled out a pardon of Flynn, telling reporters earlier this month, "I don't want to talk about pardons for Michael Flynn yet". "We'll see what happens, let's see".
