On Monday, Donald Trump found himself defending Michael Flynn, the previous national security advisor. Trump told reporters he feels “very badly” for Flynn and his predicament. He admits it is “very unfair” that the courts are charging Flynn for his crimes, when they did not do the same for Hillary Clinton.

Trumps claims that Hillary was lying to the FBI about her private email server with basically no consequence, while Flynn is suffering the ramifications of his actions.

According to The Hill:

The president’s show of solidarity comes after Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his conversations with Russian officials during the presidential transition.

The retired Army lieutenant general is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s election interference. Investigators are looking at whether the Trump campaign cooperated with the Kremlin’s election meddling effort.

The President spoke at the White House and then left for Utah, where he is to make a speech.

In the meantime, Flynn’s declaration of guilt may bring about major trouble for Trump’s staff. After all, Flynn is the first in Trump’s administration facing charges. As Mueller’s investigation continues, he may dig up some more information that damages the reputations of the president, as well as those in his inner circle.

Meanwhile, President Trump has been making every attempt to downplay Mueller and the FBI’s investigations. He sent a tweet on Sunday, saying: “After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters — worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.”

Trump also made a reference to an incident where a top FBI agent was moved off the Russia probe. This was because investigators from the Justice Department came to the realization that the agent had been sending text messages which were critical in nature of President Trump.
