Inside the Frantic Push to Get Trump to Pardon… Everyone
The Daily Beast
December 6, 2020

The Daily Beast reports, “Late last month, Trump finally pardoned his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, who less than a week later circulated a petition calling for Trump to declare martial law and undo the election in the wake of a Biden victory. The pardon, a longstanding demand by the Trump faithful, had been in the works for quite some time. According to a person with direct knowledge of the matter, Jason Miller, a senior Trump aide on the campaign, had even suggested to the president in early August that on a national security-themed night of the 2020 Republican National Convention, he should pardon Flynn on-stage during the live TV broadcast. Trump, however, shot down the idea, saying it was “too gimmicky,” the source added.”
