The targeting of Michael Flynn by the intelligence community, and then Democrats and the media was an absolute disgrace.
It all happened at the very beginning of the Trump administration, and it’s obvious to anyone with common sense that they were just targeting him to get to Trump.
Now Trump has granted Flynn a pardon. It was the right thing to do.
The Hill reports:
Trump pardons Michael Flynn
President Trump on Wednesday pardoned Michael Flynn, his first national security adviser who pleaded guilty to a charge in connection with former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
Trump announced the decision in a tweet, saying he was honored to grant Flynn a “Full Pardon.” He congratulated his former national security adviser and wished him a Happy Thanksgiving.
Trump’s decision to pardon Flynn, who was a top surrogate for his 2016 campaign, follows widespread speculation the president would do so and comes in the waning days of his term in the White House. Trump has refused to concede the election despite Joe Biden being projected the winner almost three weeks ago.
The move represents what is likely to be Trump’s closing broadside against the Russia investigation, which dogged his first two years in office and ensured six of his associates including his campaign chairman and former personal attorney.

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!

The left will freak out about this. Let them.
Flynn was unfairly targeted and none of this ever should have happened.
