Statement on the Resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn

“Congress must start a full, in-depth, bipartisan investigation immediately.”

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today released the following statement regarding the resignation of White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn:

"General Flynn's resignation is not enough," Bennet said. "The American people deserve the full story, including when the White House became aware of General Flynn's communications and whether anyone directed him to discuss our sanctions policy with Russian officials."

"President Trump's suggestion that illegal Washington leaks are the real concern must not distract us from the actual national security risk at hand. Questions remain about Russian interference in the 2016 election and the Trump Administration's ties to Russia. Congress must start a full, in-depth, bipartisan investigation immediately."
