Congressman Swalwell Floor Statement on Flynn Resignation, Trump and Russia

California Congressman Eric Swalwell speaks against the previous question on an unrelated bill to the matter of the resignation of Lieutenant General Mike Flynn as National Security Advisor to the Trump administration the night before. Swallow says that the best check against Russia is through the NATO alliance, refers to a timeline published in the New York Times of five calls between Flynn and the Russian ambassador, and remarks by then acting Attorney General Sally Yates that by lying Flynn could be compromised through blackmail by the Russians, saying of election interference by the Russians that all arrows continue to point to the Russian government, that the Flynn incident raises more questions.
