As reported by the Daily Mail, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn stated that President Donald Trump said to him to ‘stay strong’ several months after he was fired, back in February to be precise.
Back in April, Flynn met with a little group of loyalists in Virginia to talk about upcoming business opportunities.
However, some of the people were more interested in what Flynn’s opinion of the president was, after he got fired by him.
Flynn did not merely remain loyal to Trump, but he implied the he and the president are still in contact.
‘I just got a message from the president to stay strong,’ Flynn stated during the dinner on April 25, sources said to Yahoo News.
The sources did not reveal how Trump had been communicating with Flynn.
However, if this is relevant, and the two men are still communicating, it could trigger questions about the president’s reported demand to James Comey, the former FBI director, to terminate a federal investigation into Flynn, according to Yahoo News.
While the probe into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election broadens, Flynn is still being investigated.
The chairman of the Senate intelligence committee stated on Thursday that Flynn hadn’t answered to a subpoena from the panel for its Russia investigation.
Legal experts say it’s highly doubtful that Flynn would accept to turn over the personal files because he would be renouncing his constitutional protection against self-incrimination by going through with that.
Flynn, though his attorney, had previously requested immunity from ‘unfair prosecution’ as a compensation for accepting a cooperation with the committee.
