President Donald Trump said he would welcome retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn back into his administration as the former national security adviser’s troubles begin to dissipate. 

During an interview with CBS News, Trump was asked if he would take Flynn back at the White House:

"I would. I think he's a great gentleman," Trump said.

"He's been in the military for many, many decades actually — highly respected."

“He’s gone through hell. He’s been destroyed, but he’ll make a comeback,” Trump added.

“He’s gonna make a great comeback.”

Flynn was ousted for lying to FBI investigators about a conversation with a Russian envoy, before pleading guilty in December 2017.

But revelations from explosive documents suggested Flynn was set up by the FBI.

In May, the Justice Department said they would move to drop Flynn's case, with the motion now underway in the courts.

Former President Barack Obama reacted to the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) decision to drop charges against Flynn, saying he was “worried” there was a risk to the "rule of law."

"That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk," Obama said at the time.

Attorney General William Barr said he believed former FBI director James Comey was the driving force behind efforts to trap Flynn.

When asked if Flynn was trapped, Barr said:

“Yes. Essentially. They had started a counterintelligence investigation during the summer, as you know, related to the campaign."

Trump said he has not ruled out a pardon for his former security adviser and said he would wait for the case to be dismissed.

Trump said Flynn was “targeted in order to try and take down a president.”
