Michael Flynn Jr. spoke to National File on Wednesday in response to the breaking news of his father’s full presidential pardon from President Donald Trump, expressing gratitude towards the President while castigating the federal judge who oversaw the criminal case against Flynn Sr.
U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan had previously repeated Democrat Party talking points when he told Flynn, Sr. that “arguably, you sold your country out.”
President Donald Trump announced on Twitter Wednesday that he has issued a full pardon for General Michael Flynn, who was charged with lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation during an interview where agents lied to Flynn about the nature of the investigation.
Flynn’s subsequent legal persecution has been described as a political witch hunt perpetrated by officials loyal to the Barack Obama administration.
“It is my Great Honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a Full Pardon. Congratulations to @Gen Flynn and his wonderful family, I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving!” Trump said in Wednesday’s tweet.
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!

In May of 2020, the accusation that Flynn was unethically set up by the FBI was given credence by the Department of Justice, which dropped charges against Flynn.
The news of Flynn’s pardon has, predictably, been met with cries of anguish and alarm by the anti-Trump corporate media, and other activists affiliated with the Democrat Party.
