President Donald Trump pardoned former National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn Wednesday, has confirmed.

“The case was dropped May 7, 2020 and Sullivan played CLEAR AS DAY politics on deciding to sign off,” Mike Flynn Jr., his brother told Sara A. Carter of the announcement. “Shows why we need to fix our judiciary.”

Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, told that the President was the only person who could end the judicial “persecution” of Flynn.

“The pardon of Michael Flynn is solely up to the President, but given the corruption we have witnessed in the judiciary and multiple agencies of government executed against General Flynn, this persecution should end,” Powell said. “The FBI and DOJ have been a national embarrassment for more than 15 years.”

She added, “It was my fervent hope to make our judicial system work to exonerate an innocent man–as all the Left would want were he anyone but Trump or Michael Flynn, but enough is enough.  This is sick.  It’s painfully obvious Judge Sullivan is playing an evil political game with a good man’s life and family. The entire country deserves better.”

Flynn, a retired three-star general, pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents after he was accused of having contacts with Russian officials.

Despite the Justice Department’s recommendation that D.C. Circuit Court Judge Emmett Sullivan dismiss the case over the mounting exculpatory evidence showing the FBI’s mishandling of its investigation into Flynn, Sullivan continued to pursue his case.

On Twitter Wednesday, Flynn had one thing to say about Trump’s decision: “Jeremiah 1:19” with an American flag.

The bible verse says, “19 They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you.”

Mental health crisis spikes among Afghan women after Taliban regained control two years ago

The women of Afghanistan are suffering a mental health crisis since the Taliban regained power two years ago. According to a joint report from three U.N. agencies released Tuesday, approximately 70% of women experience feelings of anxiety, isolation and depression.

The numbers continue to rise, as there has already been a significant jump between April and June of this year alone, with an increase from 57%  the preceding quarter.

The report, conducted by U.N. Women, the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, interviewed women online, in-person and in group consultations as well as individual telesurveys.

592 Afghan women in 22 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces took part in the study. The Associated Press reports:

They have barred women from most areas of public life and work and banned girls from going to school beyond the sixth grade. They have prohibited Afghan women from working at local and non-governmental organizations. The ban was extended to employees of the United Nations in April.

Opportunities to study continued to shrink as community-based education by international organizations was banned and home-based schooling initiatives were regularly shut down by the de facto authorities — a term use by the U.N. for the Taliban government.

Afghanistan is the only country in the world with restrictions on female education and the rights of Afghan women and children are on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
