Gen. Michael Flynn(C), former national security adviser to US President Donald Trump, leaves Federal Court in Washington, DC, December 1, 2017.

President Donald Trump on Friday said that he didn’t want to discuss pardons for his former national security advisor Michael Flynn “yet.”

“We’ll see what happens,” he told reporters ahead of a speech to graduates of the FBI’s National Academy for law enforcement managers. “Let’s see, I can say this: when you look at what’s gone with the FBI and the justice department, people are very, very angry.”

Flynn pleaded guilty on Dec. 1 to lying to FBI agents. He is the first Trump White House official to be officially charged with a crime in connection to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
