DNC Statement on Michael Flynn’s Resignation
February 14, 2017
WASHINGTON – The DNC national press secretary Adrienne Watson issued the following statement on the resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn:
“Michael Flynn is gone, but the problem is not.
“We still have serious unanswered questions about the connections of Donald Trump, his White House and his campaign to Russia.
“The evidence suggests that General Flynn worked to undermine the sanctions imposed on Russia for interfering in the election to help Donald Trump. Was this a reward for Russia’s help? Who else in the White House besides the White House Counsel was aware of this activity? What did President Trump know and when did he know it?
“Additionally, it’s been reported that General Flynn was in communication with the Russians during the campaign. What did they talk about? Who else was in communication with the Kremlin on the Trump team?
“We urgently need Republicans to join with Democrats to support an independent, bi-partisan 9/11 Commission-style investigation to determine both what happened and what we need to do now to make sure it never happens again. Only once we have answers can we move on. Until then, there is a dark cloud hanging over our country.”
