GOP Sen Scott: Trump Should Not Pardon Michael Flynn

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) reacted to Michael Flynn guilty plea for lying to the FBI and argued against President Donald Trump should not pardon Flynn.

Partial transcript as follows:

TAPPER: your fellow senator from South Carolina, Lindsey Graham, told CNN  that he would urge President Trump to pledge to not pardon Michael Flynn. do you agree with that?

SCOTT: I do. At the end of the day, here’s what we know. We have to have a way to restore confidence of the American people in their elected officials and the leaders of this country. One way that you do that is by holding those folks who are lying to the FBI — you hold those folks accountable. And b, you have a process that is clear and transparent. When the Intel Committee is finished, we’ll have the facts.
