Remember Michael Flynn, Trump's National Security Advisor? He's had a rough transition, and insiders aren't happy with him, according to Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush of the NYT. In addition to weathering a FBI inquiry about ties to Russia (he was cleared), he's dealing with White House whispers:

  1. Talking too much: "Mr. Flynn's penchant for talking too much was on display on Friday in a meeting with Theresa May, the British prime minister, according to two people with direct knowledge of the events."
  2. His son's tweets: Michael Flynn, Jr. already caused trouble on Twitter when he promoted the "Pizzagate" conspiracy theory, and most recently referred to the immigration ban as "the Muslim ban" and claimed it was "necessary." His account has been deleted.
  3. Skipped a meeting with Mattis, Pompeo and Tillerson: "Mr. Flynn was invited but did not attend. Part of the meeting was devoted to discussing concerns about Mr. Flynn, according to an official with knowledge of it."

Who wins: Steve Bannon, who has taken on a bigger national security role.

More young people are being infected with the coronavirus, and even though they're less likely to die from it, experts warn the virus' spread among young adults may further fuel outbreaks across the United States.

Why it matters: Some people in their 20s and 30s face serious health complications from COVID-19, and a surge in cases among young people gives the virus a bigger foothold, increasing the risk of infection for more vulnerable people.

D.C. District Judge Emmet Sullivan on Thursday petitioned for the full D.C. Court of Appeals to rehear a three-judge panel's decision to order the dismissal of the case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Why it matters: The panel's 2-1 decision could be overturned by the full 11-judge appeals court if it decides to take up the en banc review.
