Retired General Stanley McChrystal is a no:
Just in: Ret Gen McChrystal tells me “I have not been contacted by #Trump campaign. If contacted I would decline consideration for any role"

Maybe someone should have contacted the general before these reports went out, heh?

Flynn, who was criticized for his pro-choice stance on Sunday, tried a little damage control on Monday:
Mike Flynn tells me his mother was pro-Life, he attended pro-Life rallies with her as a boy and drove pro-life floats for her. @FoxNews

Gen. Flynn is no longer pro-choice. What a difference 24 hours makes https://t.co/GzbrdDiSFN
