Trump plans to pardon Michael Flynn

Late Tuesday night, Axios reported that outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump has told confidants he plans to pardon Michael Flynn, citing "two sources with direct knowledge."

Fox News has confirmed.

Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI about his work with Russian individuals.
