President Trump on Thursday gave further indication that he may pardon federally convicted former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, suggesting the general was "totally exonerated" by a document dump indicating he may have been the victim of entrapment by federal investigators.
At a press conference discussing the Flynn controversy — in which, this week, new documents came to light showing FBI agents may have conspired to trick Flynn into lying as part of an investigation into the Russia collusion theory — Trump said Flynn's vindication was "not official yet" but would likely end up that way.
"He's in the process of being exonerated. If you look at those notes from yesterday, that was total exoneration," Trump said. "These were dirty, filthy cops at the top of the FBI."
? Flynn previously plead guilty to lying to federal agents before reversing course and claiming his innocence.
