House Judiciary & Oversight Dems Call For Full Member Briefing on Flynn
"General Flynn is a good soldier that is very possibly falling on his sword for following orders given by the President,” Rep. Bass stated. “Flynn was always a poor choice for National Security Advisor, a role not suitable for someone who flirts loosely with the truth. Sean Spicer tried desperately to sweep this one under an already molding rug by labeling this as a ‘trust issue,’ but it’s becoming clear that this is much more than that. This is an issue of possible Russian collusion.”
“We can’t have a breach like this and not have it investigated. Based on how closely Trump’s campaign was working with Russia, it’s incredibly hard to imagine the President didn’t know about Flynn’s conversations.”
House Judiciary Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) and House Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement in connection with the letter:
“The American people deserve to know what President Trump knew and when he knew it. After today’s White House press briefing, the importance of the requested briefing with DOJ and the FBI is more important than ever.”
