Congresswoman Lee Statement on Resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn

Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee released the following statement on the resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn:

“Michael Flynn’s resignation is a long overdue acknowledgment of threats posed to our national security by this Administration’s connections to Russia. This is just the tip of the iceberg. The American people deserve to know the extent to which the Russians meddled in our election, as well as any evidence of coordination between President Trump, his campaign or Administration and the Kremlin.

“I am deeply concerned about these revelations and I call on the White House to immediately release the transcripts of General Flynn’s call with the Russian ambassador. Furthermore, my Republican colleagues in Congress should support the call for a bipartisan and independent commission to fully investigate Russia's influence on this Administration and the election.”
