Trump compares Mike Flynn's treatment to Hillary Clinton

President Trump says he feels badly for former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn. It was the president's first on-camera comment since Flynn pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the FBI. The president also claimed Flynn was treated unfairly and pivoted to accusations about Hillary Clinton.

"I feel badly for General Flynn. I feel very badly. He's led a very strong life and I feel very badly.

"I will say this, Hillary Clinton lied many times to the FBI. Nothing happened to her. Flynn lied and they destroyed his life. I think it's a shame.

"Hillary Clinton, on the Fourth of July weekend, went to the FBI, not under oath, it was the most incredible thing anybody has ever seen. She lied many times, nothing happened to her. Flynn lied and it's like they ruined his life.

"It's very unfair," Trump said.
