Just in time for Thanksgiving, and as expected. President Donald Trump has pardoned his former National Security Advisor, General Michael T. Flynn.

“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!” Trump stated in a tweet

According to CNN, General Flynn “pleaded guilty in late 2017 to lying to the FBI” about contacts he had in Russia, later disavowing his plea and “tried to get the case thrown out.”

Earlier this week, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz urged President Trump to exercise his “pardon power.” Could Roger Stone be next to be pardoned?

Democratic lawmakers are up in arms, to say the least, and will be commenting on the president’s decision to grant the full pardon.
