President Trump, just moments before boarding Marine One, to the White House press core that he feels bad for Michael Flynn, his former nation security adviser.
Flynn recently pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, but Trump was quick to point out that Hillary Clinton, during her presidential bid in 2016, lied multiple times to the FBI and “nothing happened to her.”
Trump: Well, I feel badly for General Flynn. I feel very badly. He’s led a very strong life, and I feel badly. I will say this, Hillary Clinton lied many times to the FBI.
Nothing happened to her. Flynn lied, and they destroyed his life. I think it’s a shame. Hillary Clinton on the Fourth of July weekend went to the FBI, not under oath, it was the most incredible thing anyone has ever seen, lied many times, nothing happened to her.
Flynn lied and it’s like they ruined his life, very unfair.
