President Dumbass hopes Flynn can return to White House after Russia stuff gets cleared up
Proving once again that there are no depths to his stupidity, President Trump reportedly hopes to bring former nat sec adviser Michael Flynn back to serve in the White House after the multiple investigations into his inappropriate and potentially illegal collusion with Russians during the transition are resolved.
The Daily Beast spoke to multiple sources within the administration who said the president feels he owes Flynn for how his brief tenure in the White House ended, and hopes to clear his name and bring him back to 1600 Penn., despite his staff telling him multiple times that that is not a good idea. “Trump feels really, really, really, bad about firing him, and he genuinely thinks if the investigation is over Flynn can come back,” one White House official said.
Trump reportedly believes Flynn should have never been under investigation in the first place, and thinks so little of the allegations being leveled at him that he’s repeatedly communicated with the ousted general despite his staff, again, telling him that that is not a good idea. “The last thing [the White House] would want is an allegation of conspiracy, witness tampering or coordination,” national security attorney Mark Zaid said. “If Flynn is going to be indicted, or certainly under investigation, then I would want the president to be as far away from him as possible.”
Nevertheless, multiple sources both within and outside the White House said they had heard POTUS had talked with Flynn in the last few weeks, and Flynn himself revealed he had gotten a message from the president telling him to “stay strong.” The White House has categorically denied any conversations between the two.
The president’s guilt likely comes from another head-slapping revelation from the Beast: Flynn reportedly didn’t even want the job and Trump talked him into it. Flynn was reportedly “reluctant but honored” when offered the post, and tried to get out of it by informing the president that he was under investigation. Trump, as is his wont, didn’t give a fuck. “He did not want to be national security adviser,” said Michael Ledeen, a historian and friend of Flynn’s who co-wrote the general’s 2016 book “The Field of Flight.”
“He didn’t want to be in the government,” Ledeen added. “He wanted to go back to private life. But Trump insisted on it. He likes him, he trusted him, he was comfortable with him.”
And he ruined him. Just like everything else the bozo touches.
