On Friday, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) revealed to CNN host Brianna Keilar that General Michael Flynn is “covering up” his contacts with Russia.
In released legal documents, Flynn claimed that he didn’t know that it was against the law to lie to the FBI. Speier blasted Flynn by saying that she didn’t understand how he got the job in the first place.
“It really causes me to wonder how he ever got to be the Defense Intelligence Agency Director,” Speier said. “This is someone who had to know that we would be eavesdropping on foreign adversaries in the United States.”
She added, “For him to be so naive is really quite stunning. I think that we shouldn’t give him a pass at all. He was a highly ranked general.”
She then suggested that more information about his Russian contacts will be released to the public soon.
“Do you think that he may have had additional contacts with Russians, that he was trying to cover up?” Keilar asked.
“I don’t think there’s any question that he was trying to cover up. That’s why he lied. And if there are additional conversations he had, I’m sure that will come out,” Speier responded.

‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff
Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?
Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.

Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.

After a Florida man was arrested for trying to start a race war, a member of his own family slammed his values.
"A Florida man’s social media posts that threatened violence against African-Americans, Jews and homosexuals and that urged his followers to start a race war netted him a $1 million bond," the Miami Herald reported Saturday. "And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."
