Former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.) released a statement today, shortly after being pardoned by President Trump. Flynn was targeted by the outgoing Obama administration on charges of "Russia collusion," and pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI when put under pressure. He withdrew his plea when further evidence was revealed. Under the Trump administration, the Department of Justice sought to drop all charges, but the judge refused to do so.
Today, Flynn tweeted a link to a statement on UncoverDC.com in which he thanked his friends, family, and "every single patriot who circled me with their prayers, wisdom, and kindness." Flynn's tweet can be seen below:
