Speculation Mounts Over Michael Flynn Exoneration
Last week new court documents filed under seal containing exculpatory information about Michael Flynn were filed, according to The Federalist’s Sean Davis.

According to Davis’ source, an FBI official, FBI general counsel Dana Boente led the charge against the DOJ’s disclosure of the new materials. Boente briefly served as acting Attorney General after Trump took office, and personally signed off on one of the FISA warrants to spy on Carter Page.
The Daily Caller reported that according to their source, FBI Director Chris Wray had also tried to prevent this new information from getting out (a charge the DOJ rejects).
Now, according to Fox News, those new documents are fueling speculation that Flynn could walk:
New documents recently turned over to Michael Flynn‘s legal team have led to speculation that the former national security adviser could catch a break in his long-stalled case due to purportedly exculpatory evidence that previously had not been disclosed.
Flynn, who initially had pleaded guilty to providing false statements to investigators regarding his contact with a Russian ambassador, has pushed back against prosecutors in recent months, insisting that he is innocent. Flynn even took to Twitter for the first time in years on Friday, simply sharing a January court filing where he states he did not lie and alludes to FBI agents stating they believed him during an interview conducted when James Comey still led the bureau.
“I am innocent of this crime,” Flynn said in the sworn declaration, in which he explains that pressure from the possibility that his son could face charges, as well as advice from his previous counsel, led to him pleading guilty.
According to Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo, her sources say Flynn could be exonerated as early as this week.

The possibility of an exoneration aside, President Trump signaled back in March that he’s “strongly considering” a full pardon of Flynn.
