Statement from Integrity First PAC’s Executive Director Kyle Jarrett on Resignation of Michael Flynn and Chairman Jason Chaffetz Responsibility to Investigate the Trump administration’s ties to Russia.

“The resignation of Michael Flynn as National Security Advisor is in the best interest of our country’s safety. Despite his resignation, the fact still remains that Flynn has deep ties to the Russian government, and Chairman Jason Chaffetz must investigate President Trump’s administration and ties to Russia immediately.”

“Integrity First PAC applauds the Democratic members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform for urging Chairman Jason Chaffetz to investigate National Security Director Michael Flynn and his ties to Russia.”

“For weeks the public has demanded an investigation into President Trump and any of his advisors for possible links to Russia, and Chairman Chaffetz has continually dismissed evidence and calls for action.”

“Despite recent breaking news that Michael Flynn did communicate with Russia’s ambassador about sanctions imposed by the Obama administration before Donald Trump was sworn in, Chaffetz refuses to open an investigation into this deeply troubling matter.  The American people deserve to know what President Trump knew and when he knew it.”

“We join the Democratic members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reforms and call on Chairman Chaffetz to do the right thing and investigate Michael Flynn and all possible connections President Trump’s 2016 campaign and the current administration have with Russia.”
