Beijing, August 18 (Xinhua) it is reported that on the 17th local time, US President trump said he would pardon a “very, very important” person on the 18th, but he added that this person would not be Edward Snowden, an employee of the former US defense contractor, or Michael Flynn, a former National security assistant. On the 15th, trump said he was considering a pardon for Snowden. In 2013, Snowden revealed through the media that the U.S. government widely monitored domestic and foreign telephone calls and monitored Internet communication content, causing a great stir in the international community. The U.S. government then wanted Snowden for espionage, theft and unauthorized disclosure of defense and intelligence information. Since then, Snowden was granted asylum permits and lived in Russia for many years. However, Flynn is the first national security assistant appointed by trump after his election, and he is also one of the key figures in the investigation of Robert Miller, the special prosecutor for the “Russia to Russia” investigation. During the investigation, Flynn admitted lying to FBI agents and reached a plea agreement with Miller’s team. Under pressure from Trump and his allies, the U.S. Department of justice has dropped the accusation that Flynn was “connected to Russia.”. In July, trump used his presidential power to exempt Roger stone, the former political adviser of his campaign team, from prison. People questioned him and claimed that he would investigate. Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for perjury and other charges to Congress, and was scheduled to serve his sentence on July 14.
