Trump Wants Michael Flynn Back in White House

Russian President Vladimir Putin

"No. No. Next question", Trump replied during a press conference with the Colombian president when asked about the New York Times report that Comey had written a memo documenting the February 14 exchange.

"I think we could do with a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things so that we can focus on our agenda", McConnell told Bloomberg News.

President Trump in the joint press conference emphasized that Colombia is a key partner in the war against drugs. On Wednesday, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to preside over the investigation, which will certainly include Flynn. Weeks later, veteran investigative journalist Michael Isikoff is now reporting at Yahoo News, Flynn told associates that he had recently received a message from the president to "stay strong".

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly briefed senators on Mueller's appointment on Thursday, but refused to give a public statement.

Trump said that Comey "was very unpopular with most people" and said that he was expecting more widespread praise for the firing.

The No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn of Texas, said he was supportive of investigations in Congress but expressed concern about the "proliferation" of hearings.

"We need a great director of the FBI", Trump said.

Another Republican, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), said on the Hugh Hewitt radio show that he wants to "go slowly" but wants to see Comey's alleged notes.

Trump, including one in which the president allegedly asked him to drop a probe of Flynn.

Flynn was forced to resign in February after it was disclosed that he misled Vice President Mike Pence about the nature of his conversations with Russia's USA ambassador. "Russian Federation is fine, but whether it is Russian Federation or anybody else, my total priority, believe me, is the United States of America", Trump added.

Flynn Subpoena Burr, the Senate intelligence panel's chairman, said members are awaiting word from Flynn's attorneys whether he will comply with a subpoena for his records. Trump has denied any collusion with the Russian government and no evidence has been publicly presented to show such collusion.

"If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorised to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters", the order says.
