Out Like Flynn: Michael Flynn Faces the Wall

FBI MAN #1
You got a great home here, Mikey, for the rest of your life. Nobody gets near you; you're not goin' anywhere.

FLYNN
Ah that's great—that's beautiful. Some deal I made.

FBI MAN #2
Ah, you'll live like a king—you'll be a hero. You'll live better in here than most people on the outside.

FLYNN
Some deal, sheesh.

[FLYNN throws the cue on the pool table.]

CUT TO: The compound at Camp David. BANNON is leaning against a brick wall.

TRUMP
Immunity—FLYNN got immunity. How'd they get their hands on him?

BANNON
MCCAIN. He engineered it, Mr. President. Mikey went to make a deal with the Koch Brothers—and they tried to kill him. Our people with the New York developers said he was half dead, scared stiff, and calling out loud that you'd turned on him. They already had him on perjury, undisclosed lobbying, and a lot more.

IVANKA
The FBI has him air-tight—he's on an army base with twenty-four hour guards.

BANNON
No way we can get to him. If we don't, it's up to five counts of perjury.

TRUMP
What about JUNIOR? What does he know?

BANNON
He says he doesn't know anything—and I believe him. MCCAIN, well, he—he played this one beautifully.

TRUMP
I want to talk to JUNIOR.

CUT TO: TRUMP walking into the boat house at Camp David. KEITH SCHILLER leaves and JUNIOR stays in his chair. TRUMP sits down.

JUNIOR
I haven't got a lot to say, Dad.

TRUMP
We have time.

JUNIOR
I was kept pretty much in the dark. I didn't know all that much.

TRUMP
What about now? Is there anything you can help me out with? Anything you can tell me now?

JUNIOR
They've got FLYNN, that's all I can tell you.

[TRUMP stands up.]

JUNIOR
I didn't know it was gonna be a hit, Dad I swear to god, I didn't know it was going to be a hit. ROB GOLDSTONE bumped into me in Mar-A-Lago, and he said that he wanted to talk. He said that you and—and—PUTIN were in on a—a—big deal together on sanctions. And that there was something in it for me if I'd help 'em out. He said that—he said that—you were bein' tough on the negotiations. But if they could get a little help and close the deal fast, it'd be good for the family.

TRUMP
You believed that story. You believed that.

JUNIOR
He said there was something in it for me. On my own.

TRUMP
I've always taken care of you, JUNIOR.

JUNIOR
Taken care of me? I’m a grown man, and you take care of me? Did you ever think about that? Did you ever once think about that? Send JUNIOR off to do this; send JUNIOR off to do that! Let JUNIOR go take care of some Mickey Mouse hotel somewhere! Send JUNIOR to pick Russian prostitutes up at the airport! I’m your oldest son, Dad, and I was stepped over. By Ivanka!

TRUMP
That's the way your Pop wanted it.

JUNIOR
It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I’m smart—not like everyone says, like, dumb. I’m smart and I want respect!

TRUMP
Is there anything else you can tell me about this investigation?

JUNIOR
The special prosecutor, MUELLER -- he belongs to HILLARY.

TRUMP
JUNIOR, you’re nothing to me know. You’re not a son, you’re not a friend. I don’t want to know you or what you do. I don’t want to see you at the hotels; I don’t want you near my house. When you see your siblings, I want to know a day in advance, so I won’t be there. You understand?

[JUNIOR doesn't answer. TRUMP walks off.]

JUNIOR
Daddy!

CUT TO: KEITH SCHILLER sitting in a chair. TRUMP walks up to him.

TRUMP
I don't want anything to happen to him…while I’m still in office.
