Senator wonders what the White House has to hide on Flynn: ‘I’d think they’d want to clear this up’

Published

Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) can’t fathom why President Donald Trump and his administration are reluctant to help with the investigation on Rt. Gen. Michael Flynn if they did nothing wrong.

In a Thursday interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, Warner said that the actions by the administration raise some flags.

“I do know with any administration, if you’re hiring someone new, even if they’ve had prior clearance, you do a new review, particularly when you’re somebody as senior as a national security advisory,” Warner said, confirming CNN’s Jim Sciutto’s earlier report. “Let’s face it, this was an individual that the Trump administration finally let go because he did not reveal not only the money but some of these prior contacts with Russians.”

That’s when Warner expressed concern over the White House’s inability to provide Congress with the paperwork on Flynn.

“I would think the administration, who denies any wrongdoing, would actually want to work with us and the congress to try to clear this and a lot of the other clouds up,” Warner continued.

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

"You said could it happen here? It is happening here," Newman told Deutsch.

"As a woman of color watching him attack those four women, it made it very clear that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy," she said.

"And everyone has been kind of tiptoeing what this actually is. Donald Trump wants to start a race war in this country and it started at that rally — it started with the tweets," she said.
