Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn issued a personal statement on Thursday following Donald Trump’s pardon on Wednesday. Flynn served under the Trump Administration for less than a month in 2017.
He was fired after pleading guilty to making false allegations to the FBI over a December 2016 conversation with former Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak. These talks were key in the agency’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections. Flynn lied to Vice President Mike Pence about the same conversations.
He was the only member of the Trump administration to be indicted during the investigation.
Flynn was convicted in December 2017, and the Justice Department abandoned the case earlier in 2020. After a long three-year legal battle, Flynn received full pardon, less than two months before the Trump administration left office.
In a statement, Flynn said he was grateful for the “breath of freedom,” noting that his family’s faith and love had led him through this difficult period. He thanked his “legal fighter team,” namely Sidney Powell, and said no one should be treated to how difficult this time was.
“By the grace of Almighty God, the love and courage of my wife Lori, the strength and enthusiasm of our families, the inspiration of our friends and each patriot who has walked around with their prayers, wisdom and kindness, I thank you for the first time in over four years and my fearless lawyer, Sidney P because of the guardian angel of justice and the good thousands of people with infinite energy who come together in my name, I breathe freedom and freedom today.
