    Though its very unlikely, I'd like to see Assange and Snowden pardoned as well.

    Still can’t believe the head of Army Intelligence was set up by these democratic gangsters

    Good for Gen Flynn & his family

    When you consider just how corrupt this prosecution was, it really makes you sit up and take notice...the guy is innocent...the DOJ throws the book at him, basically guaranteeing that something will stick and he's going to jail.

    So he pleads guilty to the catch-all Sec 1101 - Lying to federal "officials".

    So then evidence emerges that totally clears him. The presiding judge Sullivan refused to drop the case. He suggested that Flynn might be prosecuted for criminal contempt of court for initially pleading guilty, and invited amicus briefs to make that argument.

    Talk about a Catch-22...how do you think one of us mundanes would fare?

    That said, good job.

    Snowden and Assange next, please.

    Kyle Rittenhouse next week.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Trump rewards people loyal to him. Don't get me wrong. Flynn got railroaded. But he was also helpful to Trump. Snowden and Assange were merely helpful to the cause of freedom. No pardon for them. Rittenhouse will likely end up with the gun charge and that's about it. I personally think that the adults over his militia should be charged with endangering a minor. There is no reason he should have been on the ground by himself. But that's just my opinion.

    I'd be interested to know why anyone in favor of the pardon has any affection for Gen. Flynn (for the record, I don't care one way or the other).

    ...don't tell me why the Dems are bad, tell me why Flynn is good.

    What has he done for us lately, or ever?

    Don't care whether he is good, bad or ugly. They railroaded him. That's all I need to know. Should be enough for you too.

    It is irrelevant whether or not we like Gen Flynn. The point is that he should not be incarcerated.

    I support the Innocence Project because I oppose the gargantuan unconstitutional police state.

    Even supposing he was railroaded, there are millions of criminal defendants every year facing all kinds of charges, some improperly.

    Why do I care about this one, as opposed to, say, some guy who was falsely accused of robbing a 711?

    Is this news just because he's part of the ruling class? That is why you folks care about him more than Rufus Smith, 711 robber?

    He was going to (still may in the 2nd term?) audit the intelligence agencies.

    There is more but that alone should be good enough reason to care.

    No supposedly to it. I'd say the difference is that he was railroaded because of a partisan hitjob.

    Again, NO ONE should be imprisoned because of trumped- charges.

    But the fact that they tried to stick it to a member of a ruling class make stories about those guys falsely accused of robbing a 7-11 more credible.

    I'd say, ignore this undifferentiated cog in the machine of this disgusting government and, if you actually want to fight injustice, focus on the poor fellow who was falsely accused of robbing a 711, who is not in fact owed any quo by any politicians, and sure as hell won't be getting any pardon.

    Say what ya want. I contribute to any number of funds that fight legal injustice. I'm not about to let your sniping worry me one way or the other.
