The Justice Department recently dropped its charges against Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former national security advisor. The decision has reignited the debate over Flynn’s alleged collusion with the Russian government, the Obama administration’s role, and whether, in light of new evidence, Flynn has been exonerated.

Journalist and former prosecutor David French joined the show to explain that while the FBI mishandled the Flynn case, he isn’t exonerated. French also discusses new revelations about Flynn’s unmasking, the US justice system, and the case’s likely outcome.

David French is a senior editor for The Dispatch and was formerly a senior writer for National Review. He is a graduate of Harvard Law School, the past president of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, and a former lecturer at Cornell Law School. He has served as a senior counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice and the Alliance Defending Freedom.
