The former U.S. president Donald Trump allegedly told his inner circle a court rule could “reinstate” him back to the White House this August.
New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman on Tuesday, June 1, tweeted the insider hearsay with a CNN video of former national security adviser Michael Flynn who surmised a possible “Myanmar-style coup” where the military seized control of the country after a dreadful massacre of citizens and its opposers.
“Trump has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August (no that isn’t how it works but simply sharing the information),” Haberman tweeted.
Flynn has been reprimanded by the mainstream media that he supported a violent coup similar to that of Myanmar in the United States at a Qanon conference, in which a member of the audience asked him: “I want to know why what happened in [Myanmar] can’t happen here?”
“No reason, I mean, it should happen here. No reason. That’s right,” Flynn said, which sourced the allegations.
Later on Monday, May 30, Flynn had to explain more on his short and therefore unclear messages on Parler.
“Let me be VERY CLEAR – There is NO reason whatsoever for any coup in America, and I do not and have not at any time called for any action of that sort,” he wrote.
Under her tweet, Haberman said the resurgence of the “reinstate” claims might be relatable to a New York indictment that Trump was subjected to.
The idea that Trump will be “reinstated” before Labor Day was hailed by many Trump supporters, who argued that with the current “audits” in key states that actually turned out to be in favor of the former President, the Supreme Court would have an eligible base to bring him back to the White House.
However, with the ongoing inattention from the courts, which Sen. Rand Paul said in Mid-April that it has been making a challenge for those who want to reexamine the 2020 election result to get through with the lawsuit, it is unlikely the Trumpers’ hopeful theory would materialize.
“The one thing I think is untrue is that the courts fully heard this,” Paul said of the many rejected lawsuits by the court, who ruled that they lacked evidence.
More than seven months have passed since the controversial presidential election event. Until now, there have been watchdog groups who successfully gathered undeniable proof of manipulated results. It remains to be seen if the potential doors for the former president to continue his leadership for another term will oblige.
