JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/MICHAEL FLYNN/PAUL MANAFORT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “On Wednesday [3-28-18] , The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump’s former lawyer John Dowd floated the possibility that Trump might issue pardons to Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort with their attorneys last year. Meanwhile, CNN has learned there was a discussion within the Department of Justice last summer, prompted by news stories speculating Trump could issue pardons via Twitter, over what would happen if he did decide to pardon anyone through social media. In emails exchanged between Department of Justice employees working for the Office of the Pardon Attorney, they concluded that if Trump decided one day to tweet out a presidential pardon, the Department of Justice would probably “have very little if any involvement,” wrote Jennifer K. Mills, a former supervisory paralegal.”
