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...

The conversations took place as U.S. intelligence agencies found evidence that Russian Federation interfered with the USA election to support Trump. Trump has long bristled at the notion that Russian Federation played any role in his November election victory.

US House Speaker Paul Ryan said the appointment was consistent with his goal of ensuring that "thorough and independent investigations are allowed to follow the facts wherever they may lead".
