Trump accused the “dirty cops” of Flynn’s false testimony

U.S. President Donald Trump said Friday, April 30, that his former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, falsely testified in the case of Russia’s interference in the U.S. presidential election due to the misconduct of “dirty police”.

The day before, Flynn’s attorneys published FBI notes and notes on the Court Listender’s website, suggesting that the bureau staff interrogated the former advisor in January 2017 may have provoked him to give false testimony.

“They tried to force him to lie. General Flynn is a good man. <…> He’s in the process of rehabilitation,” CNBC quotes the American leader.

Earlier, Trump wrote on his Twitter page that no U.S. citizen should be subjected to what happened to his former advisor.

On March 15, the U.S. president said he was considering a pardon for his former national security assistant.

Flynn resigned in early 2017 after his testimony about his contact with former Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak at the FBI was seen as evidence of Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

He also cooperated with Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, who eventually never found Trump’s conspiracy with Russia.

Flynn later pleaded guilty to falsely testifying about the content of his phone conversation with a Russian diplomat, explaining that it was the misconduct of his police officers being questioned.
