Trump Allies Want Flynn to Campaign with Trump

Trump Allies Want Flynn to Campaign with Trump July 13, 2020

Trump’s allies want former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to campaign on his behalf despite being a convicted felon. They think he brings credibility and gravitas to the campaign.

Now, after a prolonged battle against what Trump’s biggest supporters see as a rigged judicial system staffed by Obama-era bureaucrats, Flynn’s status as a deep state-fighting warrior has only grown. And with Flynn on the verge of potentially having criminal charges dismissed altogether, Trump allies are pushing the campaign to give Flynn the ultimate comeback: hitting the campaign trail for the president, according to nine people inside or close to the Trump campaign.

“Great surrogate — lots of people would come to see him,” said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Trump ally. “He’s the perfect example of deep state victimization. Pretty powerful.”…

Some Trump allies warn that hiring Flynn, or even just adding him as a speaker at rallies, would create a needless controversy at a time when Trump is struggling to make up lost ground in national and battleground states.

“I don’t know that his abilities as a surrogate outweigh the controversy he would attract,” said one ally.

Oh, please do this. Pretty please?
