Trump says that his former National Security Advisor Flynn was tormented by dirty cops


United States: President Donald Trump said on Thursday that his former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, was tormented by "dirty cops" as part of the investigation into how Russia helped Trump win the White House in 2016.

Comments from the president in the Oval Office, latest in a series of remarks about Flynn, can increase the changes that the retired general might get a presidential pardon.

In December 2017, Flynn pleaded guilty to making false claims in an indictment brought against him by Robert Mueller, then special counsel. He now insisted that he was not lying and that he wanted to withdraw from the deal.
