WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said he would consider bringing former national security adviser Michael Flynn, a key figure in the probe into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, back into his administration.

“I would certainly consider it, yeah. I think he’s a fine man,” Trump told reporters.

Flynn had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about interactions with Russia’s ambassador to the United States in the weeks before Trump took office.
