Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.) is awaiting his fate. The former national security advisor pled guilty to lying to federal investigators about his contact with Russia's U.S. ambassador Sergey Kislyak in 2017 but has since signaled his intention to withdraw that plea. And this week's new exculpatory evidence revealed that Flynn may have been "framed" by the FBI.

The unsealed documents reveal that FBI agents were less interested in information on Kislyak, and more interested in getting Flynn in trouble. The seemingly damning notes were written by former FBI general counsel James A. Baker.

Perhaps sensing freedom, Flynn tweeted out a video of an American flag blowing in the wind.

As he awaits his fate, Flynn knows he has a friend and a comrade in Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY). The congressman served with Flynn at Fort Huachuca and remembered him as a leader who "inspired all in our ranks." Fort Huachuca is a U.S. Army installation just north of Mexico. The two men served together in the early 2000s.

At a recent White House coronavirus task force meeting, President Trump was asked if there's any reason why he wouldn't ask Flynn to rejoin his administration if he's exonerated. Trump said he'd look into it, adding that Flynn was a great patriot who'd been treated terribly. 

He added a message for the media on Thursday.
