1. That's not what the story is about. What happened was:

"A lawyer for President Trump broached the idea of Mr. Trumpís pardoning two of his former top advisers, Michael T. Flynn and Paul Manafort, with their lawyers last year, according to three people with knowledge of the discussions.

The discussions came as the special counsel was building cases against both men, and they raise questions about whether the lawyer, John Dowd, who resigned last week, was offering pardons to influence their decisions about whether to plead guilty and cooperate in the investigation." https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/28/us/politics/trump-pardon-michael-flynn-paul-manafort-john-dowd.html

No pardons are in the works. In fact, this makes Trump look even worse than ever.

3. They were considering it last year.

Not sure if it is still on the table.

If they do it would be obstruction of justice.
