Rep. Maloney on Flynn Guilty Plea

Dec 1, 2017
Press Release

Following news that former National Security Advisor and top Trump campaign official Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his communications with the Russians during the presidential transition, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12), senior member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released the following statement:

“General Flynn’s guilty plea today, including an admission that he lied to the FBI about his conversations with the Russians during the presidential transition, is extremely disturbing and significant. We now know that senior transition officials directed General Flynn to contact Russian officials in order to influence Russia’s reactions to Obama Administration policies, directly contradicting numerous denials from the Trump Administration. It is critical that Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation continue without interference, no matter where it leads. The American people deserve the truth about what happened during and after the 2016 campaign and anyone found violating the law needs to be held fully accountable.”
