President Donald Trump pardoned former National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn Wednesday, SaraACarter.com 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 SaraACarter.com 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.”

Mexico: Top Officials Among Charged in ‘Fast and Furious’ Weapons Trafficking
On Sunday, Mexican prosecutors said they have charged seven individuals in the infamous “Fast and Furious” weapons trafficking scandal. Among those charged in the more than decade old case were former top police official Genaro Garcia Luna and former drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman.
“Fast and Furious” was and investigation in which agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives sold guns to criminals with the intention of tracking the weapons.
The plan went horribly wrong, and the agency lost most of the guns, including two guns that were found at the scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry who was murdered In December of 2010.
Terry’s murder exposed the bungled investigation. Fox News reports Mexico says drug gangs and former officials also participated in or failed to stop the weapons trafficking. Garcia Luna was arrested in Texas in 2019 for allegedly protecting a drug gang.
Luna was security chief in President Felipe Calderon’s 2006-2012 administration, and was also tasked with being the leader of the government’s fight against organized crime. Also charged was former Federal Police commander Luis Cardenas Palomino, who was the right-hand man of Garcia Luna.
Palomino was already arrested on charges of torture and U.S. prosecutors have separately accused him of accepting millions in bribes from the Sinaloa cartel, reports Fox News. Drug lord ‘El Chapo’ was also charged with weapons trafficking, but is already serving a life sentence in Colorado.
