Democrats demand investigation into Flynn’s affairs

Senior Democrats pushed for an independent probe into the circumstances of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s resignation.

Following reports that he spoke with the Russian ambassador multiple times before Trump was inaugurated, around the time that the U.S. expelled many senior diplomats, Flynn announced his resignation. Reports also surfaced alleging that Flynn lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations with the ambassador, which is what the Trump Administration cited as the reason for the resignation.

Democratic leaders called for an independent investigation into whether or not Flynn violated the Logan Act, which forbids civilians from participating in diplomatic negotiations.
