Original Message Action reportedly part of a series of pardons planned before Trump leaves White House on 20 January

With the presidential transition process finally underway, Donald Trump has told aides that he is planning to issue a pardon to his former national security adviser Michael T Flynn before leaving office, sources told US media.

Retired Army lieutenant general Flynn twice pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI regarding his phone calls with a Russian diplomat during the last presidential transition in late 2016. In the conversations, Flynn urged the Russian diplomat not to escalate in response to the Obama administration imposing sanctions on Russia over election interference.

Details of the call surfaced a part of a broader investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 US elections.

The action over Flynn’s conviction would be part of a series of pardons planned by Mr Trump, some of the final exercises of his executive powers before he leaves office on 20 January.

Mr Trump said back in March that he was considering a full pardon for Flynn, saying the FBI and Justice Department had "destroyed" the retired general’s life.

He also tweeted that Flynn was “an innocent man” who had been a target of Obama administration officials.
