National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's resignation was warranted and overdue. Yet his exit raises more questions than it answers. It's still unclear who and what was known in the White House about his diplomatic discussions with Russia before then-President Obama left office. This entire episode reaffirms the need for an independent, bipartisan investigation into the influence Russia has had on our elections, our national security and the current occupant of the White House. Flynn's resignation marks a beginning, not an end.

 U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement regarding the resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn:

 

“National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s resignation was warranted and overdue. Yet his exit raises more questions than it answers. It’s still unclear who and what was known in the White House about his diplomatic discussions with Russia before then-President Obama left office. And if the Justice Department warned the White House last month that Flynn had misled them about his communications with a Russian diplomat, and therefore was vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow, why was he still on the job? This entire episode reaffirms the need for an independent, bipartisan investigation into the influence Russia has had on our elections, our national security and the current occupant of the White House. Flynn’s resignation marks a beginning, not an end.”
