Statement on the Resignation of National Security Advisor Michael Flynn
“The resignation of President Trump’s National Security Advisor Michael Flynn represents just the latest in a series of actions that raise more questions about the Administration’s ability to handle information and policies of critical consequence to the security of our nation.
“From questionable dealings with Russia, to an Executive Order drafted without adequate counsel from legal and Homeland Security experts, and a very public display of the Administration inability to protect top-level information, Americans are witnessing a dangerous pattern that fails to recognize the serious repercussions of lax judgement in handling highly sensitive material.”
