Indiana’s U.S. Senators tell Indy Politics they support an investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s discussions with the Russians.
CNN reports the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said it was “highly likely” the body would investigate Flynn.
Republican Todd Young’s office said, “The Intelligence Committee Chairman began an investigation into these issues in December, and I believe that investigation should have access to any persons or resources necessary to review the matter.”
Democrat Joe Donnelly’s office said, “General Flynn’s resignation is a powerful reminder that Congress must—for the sake of our national security—conduct a robust and thorough investigation into Russia’s attempts to influence our elections and also possibly our government. No one knows what such an investigation would reveal, but that should not keep Congress from asking every last question that deserves an answer.”
Flynn resigned from his post as National Security Advisor following reports that he misled the administration about the nature of his discussions with the Russians when they discussed sanctions.
