Trump wants Mike Flynn back in the White House.



But Trump doesn’t just hope that Flynn will beat the rap. Several sources close to Flynn and to the administration tell The Daily Beast that Trump has expressed his hopes that a resolution of the FBI’s investigation in Flynn’s favor might allow Flynn to rejoin the White House in some capacity—a scenario some of Trump’s closest advisers in and outside the West Wing have assured him absolutely should not happen.

Those sources said Trump didn’t believe Flynn should be under investigation in the first place.

“Trump feels really, really, really, bad about firing him, and he genuinely thinks if the investigation is over Flynn can come back,” said one White House official.

One former FBI official and a second government official said Trump thought he owed Flynn for how things ended up and was determined to clear Flynn’s name and bring him back to the White House.

6. He just can't quit Flynn. I read (no link, no) that staffers or whoever keep asking dft to not

call or contact Misha - whether or not he is, I don't know or care...but his attachment to this fellow slime bucket is quite public, and appears to be deep and heartfelt.

7. So I just now posted the latest Borowitz report...


here
https://www.democraticunderground.com/10029084375
and then clicked on this thread, and once again had to ask myself if this was satire...because honestly, it is very hard to tell the difference between what comes out of the WH and Borowitz, not to mention the late night comics.

I know this is not the first time anyone has made this observation, but it seems to me it has been getting steadily more the case as the wheels keep getting looser. Are others finding the same?

27. That is what I think. He knows that when the FBI gets to the bottom of Flynn, they find DT

I think DT wants to call Flynn or send signals that if he is mum, DT will pardon him.

12. The actual thing is, that's not hyperbole.

Remember the stories about how the staff have to subtly keep the "bad news" away from him to avoid him having a tantrum and shutting down altogether. He doesn't (allegedly) watch "fake" news very often, so he may not be realizing how poisonously Flynn is regarded.

His legal issues have been nonstop on MSNBC and CNN. If he's tuned to Fox primarily, he probably thinks everything is hunky-dory and that this *will* all blow over.

Of course, his supporters don't care what anybody else thinks about what Trump does. They would actually laud his decision to do this.

22. I'm not completely up to date on the new lingo..

For example, I'm not sure how many "reallys" are in a "bigly". On the other hand, I would bet that the gropenfuhrer has never been sorry for anything in his life. Not even one "really".

There's 10 "reallys" in one "bigly," and 10 "biglys" in one "yooge."

I hope he tries to bring flynn back no matter what be the status of the investigation. Let the crazy be revealed for all to see!
