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.Holy shit. HOLY SHIT.
