In one of the least shocking moves by Donald Trump, he has extended a full pardon to convicted felon, General Michael Flynn. Just a few months ago the DC Circuit Court denied his appeal to drop charges after he had pleaded guilty twice. I guess Trump is starting his "paying back his debts" part of his lame duck presidency.
