General Flynn talked to Russia. Imagine that! BFD! Russia is NOT our enemy. It’s like, “General Flynn, that son-of-a-bitch, talked to Canadians! For this we must remove Trump from the presidency!”
You want to look at a cozy relationship, Congress? Look at Barack Hussein’s relationship with Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood, neither of which are exactly friendly with the United States. Does “Death to America” ring a bell?
Oh, it’s too late for that. OK, sounds like you just admitted your own incompetence and/or corruption.
The fallout from Michael Flynn’s resignation has prompted top members of the Republican-led Senate to call for investigations of Russia and President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Flynn, CNN reports.
According to Newsmax, ranking Republicans John Cornyn, Roy Blunt, and Lindsey Graham have all called for the investigation, and that includes talking to the ousted Flynn, who resigned late Monday night.
Blunt, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said his committee “should look into it exhaustively.”
“I would think that we should talk to Gen. Flynn very soon and that should answer a lot of questions,” Blunt told a radio station, according to CNN. “What did he know? What did he do?”
Graham was more pointed in what he wants to hear from Flynn.
“I think Congress needs to be informed of what actually Gen. Flynn said to the Russian ambassador about lifting sanctions,” Graham said on CNN’s “At This Hour.”
“And I want to know, ‘Did General Flynn do this by himself or was he directed by somebody to do it?'”
Earlier Tuesday, Democrats called for a special investigation into possible links between Trump’s administration and Russia, including when Trump learned that his national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had discussed U.S. sanctions with a Russian diplomat.
“The American people deserve to know the full extent of Russia’s financial, personal and political grip on President Trump and what that means for our national security,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement.
Flynn’s resignation late Monday also prompted Democrats to press again for a no-holds-barred probe of Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election.
