DEVELOPING NOW… FROM FOX NEWS…
President Trump on Wednesday tweeted that he has granted a ‘full pardon’ to his former national security advisor, retired Army Gen. Michael Flynn, ending a legal saga brought about by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“It is my Great Honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a Full Pardon,” the president wrote. “Congratulations to @GenFlynn and his wonderful family, I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving!”
The White House later in the day sent out a statement saying that Flynn “should never have been prosecuted” and that the pardon ends “the relentless, partisan pursuit of an innocent man.”

“While today’s action sets right an injustice against an innocent man and an American hero, it should also serve as a reminder to all of us that we must remain vigilant over those in whom we place our trust and confidence,” the statement continued.
Flynn pleaded guilty twice to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak prior to Trump’s inauguration.
ANOTHER SMOKING GUN: Docs Show Strzok ‘Stopped FBI from Ending Flynn Probe’ Despite Lack of Evidence
Recently released documents from the Department of Justice shed even more disturbing light on the actions of high-level officials at the DOJ; revealing Peter Strok “stopped the FBI from ending their probe” into Michael Flynn despite a lack of evidence.
“Internal FBI documents unsealed Thursday indicate that Peter Strzok — the now-disgraced anti-Trump former head of FBI counterintelligence — ordered the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn to remain open even after it was slated to be closed due to a lack of so-called ‘derogatory’ information,” reports Fox News.
“Thursday’s document release shows that on January 4, 2017, weeks before the fateful January 24, 2017 White House interview, the FBI’s Washington Field Office issued a “Closing Communication” indicating that the bureau was terminating ‘CROSSFIRE RAZOR’ — the newly disclosed codename for the investigation of Flynn,” adds Fox.

BIDEN on FLYNN: Joe Denies Knowledge of Flynn Case Before Admitting, ‘Sorry, I Was Aware’
Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden first deflected -then admitted- he had prior knowledge of the FBI’s perjury trap against Michael Flynn this week; saying “I’m sorry, I was aware that they asked for an investigation.”
“I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn,” Biden initially said.
“No, I thought you asked me whether or not I had anything to do with him being prosecuted,” Biden said. “I’m sorry.”
