The Justice Department is dropping charges against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
President Trump is gloating and said a “big price” would be paid by those who brought the case, while Democrats decry the politicizing the Justice Department. The action is a stunning reversal of of one of the signature cases brought by special counselor Robert Mueller.
This is outrageous!— (Rep. Nadler) (@RepJerryNadler) May 7, 2020
Flynn PLEADED GUILTY to lying to investigators. The evidence against him is overwhelming. Now, a politicized DOJ is dropping the case.
The decision to overrule the special counsel is without precedent and warrants an immediate explanation.
