Congresswoman Cheri Bustos Statement on the Resignation of Gen. Michael Flynn

“The deeply troubling circumstances around Gen. Flynn’s resignation from his post as National Security Advisor demand a thorough investigation to uncover what President Trump knew and when he knew it. We now know that Gen. Flynn got caught red-handed lying about his potentially illegal contacts with the Russian Ambassador after the Russians interfered with our election in an effort to help Donald Trump win. But, what we do not know is whether Gen. Flynn acted alone or if he was directed by President Trump or anyone else in the administration. We must go where the facts lead us to gain a full understanding of how deep President Trump’s ties to the Kremlin run.”
