Democrat Adam Schiff got mad after the President granted a pardon to Gen. Flynn so he decided to go after him.
Wednesday, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) weighed in on CNN’s reporting that President Donald Trump is considering pardoning former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Flynn pleaded guilty in 2017 to lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts but later tried to withdraw his guilty plea.
Schiff said on CNN’s “New Day” that Trump is “acting like an organized crime figure” by rewarding people who lie for him.
Schiff was mad even before the pardon was official, but now he’s furious. Although Flynn case was dropped by the DOJ and an Obama-era judge ignored him, Trump gave him a chance.
Flynn was charged for lying to the FBI, but later was revealed that Obama and Biden have set him up. The entire investigation was ruled illegitimate.
President Trump’s pardon cleared Flynn’s name, so Democrats were of course, disappointed. With all this, Schiff reaction was ‘reasonable’.
