On Tuesday, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman claimed that former President Donald Trump “has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August.”

Haberman shared a video on social media from CNN that showed apparently QAnon-influenced Trump supporters expressing support for a coup similar to Myanmar to reinstall the former Republican president.

Haberman offered no sources, and elaborated only to argue that Trump’s belief that the 2020 election was stolen has something to do with it: 

Michael Flynn Denies Ever Advocating For A Coup

According to The Hill, Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn made a curious remark after a question during a conference hosted by supporters of the QAnon conspiracy theory.

The Hill reported, “Someone from the audience asked, ‘I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here?’

The report continued, “After the crowd responded with cheers, Flynn responded, ‘No reason. I mean it, it should happen here.”

Flynn denies ever advocating for such a coup.

Flynn reportedly said that 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.”

Haberman followed up with a tweet that read, “It isn’t happening in a vacuum. It is happening as he faced the possibility of an indictment from the Manhattan DA.”

Jenna Ellis, Trump’s former senior legal adviser, tweeted on Sunday that Trump “is not going to be reinstated” and advocated for election integrity laws to secure future elections.

“Even if Biden/Harris were impeached and convicted, there is a constitutionally prescribed presidential succession,” Ellis tweeted.
