Sanders insists Trump is not pardoning Flynn and Manafort ‘at this time’ — but won’t deny he’s pitched the idea


“There is not discussion or consideration of that at this time,” Sanders told reporters. “So, there would have been no reason for me to have had a conversation with the president about that because that is not being currently discussed at the White House.”

Sanders, however, did not say if pardons had been discussed with lawyers outside the White House.

At Wednesday’s White House briefing, Sanders was asked about a New York Timesreport which claims “President Trump broached the idea of Mr. Trump pardoning two of his former top advisers, Michael T. Flynn and Paul Manafort, with their lawyers last year, according to three people with knowledge of the discussions.”
