Vice President Mike Pence told “Axios on HBO” that he welcomes the idea of bringing Michael Flynn back into government, after the Justice Department moved last week to drop its criminal case against President Trump’s former national security adviser.
Trump said April 30 that he would “certainly consider” bringing Flynn back into the administration. Since Flynn had been accused of lying to the vice president, Pence’s blessing clears an obstacle to him returning to Trump’s inner circle.
“I think Gen. Michael Flynn is an American patriot,” Pence said during the interview in Iowa on Friday. “And for my part, I’d be happy to see Michael Flynn again.”
