Flynn tried to take the plea back, but the judge insanely wouldn’t allow him to, even after the DOJ said they no longer would pursue his case.
Via Just the News:
President Trump on Wednesday pardoned his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, bringing to end a tumultuous four-year criminal case that felled the three-star general before prosecutors reversed course and declared they had improperly pursued his case.
Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about talking with a Russian diplomat during the 2016 Trump administration transition period.
