Kellyanne Conway: Trump Feels Flynn Treated 'Very Unfairly'

By    |   Thursday, 30 April 2020 09:25 AM

President Donald Trump feels that his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was treated "very unfairly," presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway said Thursday, while commenting that it would be up to the president himself to make any kind of announcement about a potential pardon in the case. 

"But the president will make any decision that he has, the president will make an announcement like that," said Conway on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "He's made very clear that he feels people around him were treated very unfairly and in this case worse."

Her comments come after the news that handwritten FBI notes that were unsealed on Wednesday showed a concerted effort to pin him down on having broken the Logan Act, "get him to lie," or "get him fired."

In March, Trump said he was "strongly considering a full pardon" for Flynn," and Thursday morning, the president tweeted that what had happened to Flynn, "a war hero, should never be allowed to happen to a citizen of the United States again."

Conway said that regardless of one's political affiliation, "every American should feel a chill today that federal government officials in high places can come to the White House four days into our presidency and come here to try to set up the national security adviser to the president."

"The fix was in," she said. "Imagine if what was written in the margins of these notes, should we get him to lie or get him fired, imagine if anything like that was in the Mueller investigation . . . they pecked around and hunted around at taxpayer funding for years to find absolutely nothing. This man was set up from the beginning."

Flynn ended up pleading guilty to lying to federal investigators, but he has not been sentenced. He has since withdrawn his plea, claiming "egregious misconduct" by the FBI.

Meanwhile, Flynn has endured "three years of reputational scorn and isolation," said Conway. "He obviously had to leave his job here."
