Senator Hassan's Statement on Michael Flynn's Resignation

WASHINGTON - Today, Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement on the resignation of President Trump's National Security Advisor, Lt. General Michael Flynn:

"Lt. General Michael Flynn's appointment as National Security Advisor was always deeply troubling given his close connections to Russia and Vladimir Putin, and his resignation was an appropriate step. However, there are still serious national security concerns that need to be addressed regarding reports that the White House knew about the true nature of Lt. General Flynn's conversations with the Russian Ambassador well before Flynn's resignation last night. Particularly given Russia's shameless attacks on the foundation of our democracy, it's critical that we fully investigate Russia's involvement with Lt. General Flynn and the Trump Administration, and any national security threats that this contact may have posed."
