Reps. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and Elijah Cummings (D-MD) held a press conference on Tuesday to knock the Trump administration for denying their requests for documents related to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
“We received a response from the White House refusing to provide any of the documents we requested,” Cummings said at the press conference. “The White House has refused to offer a single piece of paper in response to this committee’s bipartisan request.”
Cummings also said Flynn might have committed a felony by not disclosing payments he received from foreign governments before he assumed the role of national security adviser.
“This is a major problem,” Cummings said.
I have to say I am a little surprised to see Chaffetz in front of the cameras talking about this.
I wonder if that means he wants to actually do his job before his quits it altogether?
Wow, when Jason Chaffetz complains that a Republican White House is obstructing an investigation, you KNOW the writing is on the wall.
While we are on the topic of Trump advisers and Russia let me share this tweet with you from the other day.
And once again the noose gets a little tighter..@RepMikeQuigley on Russia: "If the US public saw what I had seen...they would want a full-throttle investigation" https://t.co/0bmEliKJJV— CNN Newsroom (@CNNnewsroom) April 24, 2017
