In today’s least surprising news, Trump has pardoned former national security adviser Michael Flynn. “Trump’s pardon of Flynn marks a full embrace of the retired general he had ousted from the White House after only 22 days on the job — and a final salvo against the Russia investigation that shadowed the first half of his term in office.” I doubt this will be the last salvo related to anything.

+ Trump also pardoned a turkey yesterday. (For a second, I thought he was just gonna pardon the white meat.)
