Trump attorney discussed ‘possible pardons’ with Flynn and Manafort lawyers: Bombshell NYT report

Published

on

A bombshell New York Times report claims that an attorney working on behalf of President Donald Trump reached out to attorneys representing two indicted Trump allies to discuss “possible pardons.”

According to the Times, the unnamed Trump lawyer discussed the potential for pardons with attorneys representing former campaign chairman Paul Manfort and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“The discussions raised questions about whether the president was willing to offer pardons to influence their decisions about whether to plead guilty and cooperate in the Mueller investigation,” the Times reports.

Since the reported pardon discussions took place, both Flynn and Manafort pleaded guilty to charges and entered into cooperation agreements with special counsel Robert Mueller. Although Flynn has upheld the terms of his agreement, the special counsel found that Manafort repeatedly violated his plea agreement by lying about contacts he’d had with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian national whom federal law enforcement officials believe has ties to Russian intelligence agencies.

If Trump ordered an attorney to float pardons to witnesses who could possibly implicate him, that could constitute an obstruction of justice charge.

LISTEN: Charlamagne Tha God clashes with ‘delusional’ Rush Limbaugh in debate over George Floyd’s killing and white privilege

During an interview with Rush Limbaugh this Monday, Charlamagne Tha God called out the conservative radio host for his white privilege and asked him why he's choosing to speak out on George Floyd's killing while there have been countless examples of police violence against black people.

“I know that you’re going to disagree with me on this — to me this is not America,” Limbaugh said, adding that he thinks the U.S. is the greatest country in the world.

But according to Charlamagne, America is only great for some people.

“I think it’s easy for you to say because you’re a white male and that comes with a different level of privilege,” Charlamagne said. “And I do think America does work but it works for the people it was designed to work for. It doesn’t work for everyone else the way it works for you.”
