Napolitano’s Statement on Michael Flynn Lying to the FBI

December 1, 2017
Press Release

(WASHINGTON, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (D-El Monte) released the following statement after former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn admitted to making false statements to the FBI about communications with the Russian government:

“Michael Flynn’s admission of lying to the FBI is appalling and deeply troubling. President Trump and his administration have repeatedly denied any link between his campaign officials and the Russians, yet Mr. Flynn is now the fourth person to be charged with such ties. This disturbing revelation underpins the importance of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, which must be able to proceed without interference from the Trump Administration or Congress. A bipartisan, independent commission to fully investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election and to safeguard our democracy from future attacks must also be established without delay.”
