While taking questions from reporters on Thursday, President Donald Trump said that he would “certainly consider” bringing former national security adviser Michael Flynn back into his administration after it was recently discovered that he was framed by the FBI.
“It looks to me like Flynn would be fully exonerated based on everything I see. I’m not a judge but I have a different type of power,” Trump said.
“I don’t think I would have to use that power,” he later said after being asked if he would pardon Flynn. “Hopefully we won’t have to get there.”
On Wednesday, the Department of Justice released court documents showing that in January of 2017, the FBI questioned about using their interview with Flynn to “get him fired” and to “get him to lie.”
President Trump also said that he would “certainly consider” bringing Flynn back into his administration. “He’s a fine man,” he said. “Yeah, I would.”

As for the Flynn matter, more internal FBI documents unsealed Thursday indicate that Peter Strzok — the now-disgraced anti-Trump former head of FBI counterintelligence — ordered the investigation of former national security adviser Flynn to remain open even after it was slated to be closed due to a lack of so-called “derogatory” information.
