Speaking to reporters Friday, President Donald Trump would not rule out a pardon for disgraced former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI earlier this month.
"I don’t want to talk about pardons for Michael Flynn yet,” Trump told reporters at the White House. "We'll see what happens. Let's see."
As no one knows yet what Flynn's cooperation with the investigation has entailed, the president could be worried about Flynn revealing damaging information about himself or others in the administration.
Trump may have been trying to signal to Flynn it's possible he could receive a legal reprieve if he protects him and his family.
