The US Department of Justice said on Thursday that it would drop criminal charges against Donald Trump’s first national security adviser Michael Flynn, dropping a lawsuit that became a rallying cry for the President and his supporters by attacking the FBI Trump-Russia investigation.

The move was a staggering reversal in one of the signature cases brought in by special counsel Robert Mueller. This has happened even though prosecutors over the past three years have argued that Flynn had lied to the FBI in a January 2017 interview about his conversations with the Russian ambassador.
