ABC News‘ Jonathan Karl asked the president on Friday morning if he’d consider a pardon for Flynn. The president responded to the question with “We’ll see what happens.” The president added, “I don’t want to talk about pardons for Michael Flynn yet. Let’s see. I can say this, when you look at what’s gone on with the FBI and with the justice department, people are very, very angry.”

It is believed he is now working with special prosecutor Robert Mueller on his investigation into Russian melding during the 2016 presidential election. With President Trump refusing to rule out a pardon, a question comes to mind. Should President Trump pardon Michael Flynn?
