Try as the administration of President Donald Trump may the scandal involving former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn’s resignation is not going away anytime in the future. All eyes are on Trump, and his administration’s involvement in Flynn’s complicity in handing over sensitive information to the Russian government. The Senate Judiciary Committee has asked the Justice Department to grant the totality of Flynn’s resignation letter.
Two Democratic senators, Sen. Chuck Grassley and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, are leading the charge against Flynn. In the letter to the Justice Department they, in part, wrote, “We request that individuals with specific knowledge of these issues from both the FBI and Justice Department brief Committee Members and staff.” The pair of senators continued by stating:
These reports raise substantial questions about the content and context of Mr. Flynn’s discussions with Russian officials, the conclusions reached by the Justice Department and the actions it took in response, as well as possible leaks of classified information by current and former government employees.
It appears that Trump and Flynn will not be able to lie their way out of the mess they have created for themselves. Nor should they be as the Senate has an absolute right to investigate and bring charges against those who have desecrated their oaths to the people of the United States. If any wrongdoing is found to have occurred on the part of Trump or any member of his team they deserve and must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Do you think that Flynn should face prosecution if it is found he discussed sanctions with Russian officials in advance of the Trump Presidency? Comment below and let us know what you think.
