Trump Wants Michael Flynn Back in White House

During the question period, a reporter asked Trump if he "urged" Comey to "close or to back down the investigation into Michael Flynn?".

Trump is both publicly and privately stewing about Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein's decision to name special counsel.

"I think it's totally ridiculous", the president replied.

The New York Times reported on Tuesday that the president asked FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation into Flynn's ties to Russian Federation on the grounds that he's "a good guy". News reports have characterized the president as dissatisfied with his communications team's inability to control the tenor of the coverage of recent negative stories. "You can't let them get you down, can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".

"I hung up, called Director Mueller, with whom I'd been discussing this particular matter and had been a great help to me over that week - and told him what was happening", Comey testified. "I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things".

Trump is scheduled to leave Washington on Friday (Saturday NZT) on his first foreign trip, a nine-day sojourn with stops in Saudi Arabia, Israel, Italy and Belgium, as well as a visit to the Vatican to meet Pope Francis.
