Donald Trump Predicts ‘Total Exoneration’ for Michael Flynn
President Donald Trump expected Thursday at the White House that General Michael Flynn can be exonerated after reports comprehensive FBI notes showing that real estate agents were seeking to trick him straight into lying with them in an employment interview.
âHeâs in the process of being exonerated if you look at those notes from yesterday. That was total exoneration,â Trump said. âThese were dirty, filthy cops at the top of the FBI.â
Trump said newly released FBI files from Flynnâs case helped proven his innocence.
âLook at what they did to the guy. He couldnât have known too much what was happening. They came at him with 15 buses, and heâs standing in the middle of the highway,â Trump said.
CNNâs Jim Acosta asked Trump about Flynn through a White House Oval Office meeting with New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy. That prompted often the president to demand that CNN not just âapologizeâ for tormenting often the general, but cover the fresh documents fairly.
âJim, what they did to him is terrible, and I hope that CNNâs going to give him a fair shake and cover it,â Trump said.
Trump praised Flynnâs years associated with service to the country inside the United States military.
âYou donât get to be where he is by being bad; that, I can tell you,â he said.
When asked if he regretted shooting Flynn, Trump said he thought he would have gotten the info about the FBI trying for you to force him to lie.
âWhat they did to Gen. Flynn and others was a disgrace,â he said.
Trump said he had read of which even more documents will occur out proving Flynnâs innocence, yet he had already seen sufficient.
âHeâs essentially exonerated. Now, thatâs not official yet, but when you read the notes, how could you do anything else?â Trump asked.
