Trump planning to pardon Flynn - reports

United States President Donald Trump is planning to pardon his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, several US media outlets reported citing sources close to the matter.

Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about the nature of his discussions with Russia in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. However, Trump has insisted his former aide is "an innocent man" and was treated unfairly.

Earlier this year, the Department of Justice requested the charges against Flynn to be dropped, claiming that his interview with the FBI was "conducted without any legitimate investigative basis," but the District of Columbia Appeals Court ruled against closing the case.
