President Donald Trump will soon support waterboarding — and his support seeks to reassure intelligence agents that they "don't have to fear that they're going to be prosecuted, as they did during the Obama administration," attorney and former adviser Sam Nunberg told Newsmax TV on Thursday.

"If you recall in the early days, [Attorney General] Eric Holder was thinking and strongly considering about prosecuting these people for what they did during the Bush administration," Nunberg told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth.

"I do think that they're going to be allowed to waterboard under this administration," he added. "If it's not passed by Congress, I think it's held under the preliminary powers of the president for national security."

Former Illinois Rep. Michael Flanagan agreed, telling Hayworth that "President Trump, unlike a president we've had for a long time, values the safety and security of this nation, his family, his state.

"All of our families. All of our states.

"Donald Trump cares that we are safe and happy and healthy," said Flanagan, who currently owns a Washington lobbying firm. "If that's going to get us there, it's going to be OK with him."
