Cicilline Calls for Investigation Into General Michael Flynn’s Contacts with Russian Ambassador

Friday, February 10, 2017

BALTIMORE – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) today joined a growing list of lawmakers in the House and Senate who are calling for a thorough investigation into whether National Security Advisor Michael Flynn broke the law while discussing sanctions with the Putin regime one month before President Donald Trump took office:

“These are incredibly disturbing allegations. If true, then General Flynn, as a private citizen, aided the Kremlin in undercutting President Obama just months after Russia interfered in our elections.”

“So far, nine current and former U.S. officials have confirmed the allegations raised against General Flynn. There needs to be a complete, thorough investigation into this matter. And until that investigation is complete, President Trump should suspend General Flynn’s access to classified intelligence.”
