"I don't want to talk about pardons for Michael Flynn yet. We'll see what happens," Trump said on Friday.

Flynn is the first person in the Trump administration to be charged in the Russia investigation.

Mueller's team had earlier indicted Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort.

Reports suggest Mueller's team is focusing on Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner.

Trump also said people are "very, very angry" about "what's going on with the FBI."

His comments are likely referring to earlier reports that Mueller had fired an FBI officer from the investigation after discovering that he made anti-Trump statements in text messages.

Interestingly, less than an hour after his criticism, Trump said he supports the FBI "100%" and heaped praise on the agency.
