Congresswoman Cheri Bustos statement on former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn Pleading Guilty to Making False Statements to the FBI

“While all Americans should be alarmed that the former National Security Advisor just admitted he was guilty of lying to the FBI about his communications with Russia, we should also be heartened by the clear message today that nobody is above the law. Michael Flynn’s guilty plea underscores the importance of ensuring that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is able to continue his investigation into the Trump Administration’s ties to Vladimir Putin without any political influence. The president has spent months claiming this investigation is fake news, but now that a member of his Administration has confessed to a felony, I am hopeful that he will stop attempting to undermine the credibility of our judicial system.”
