Thompson Calls for Congressional Investigation, Raises Questions About Flynn Resignation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson released the following statement to the media regarding issues surrounding the resignation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn:

“While the President is certainly entitled to hire and dismiss advisors as he sees fit, the resignation of General Michael Flynn raises many questions that I believe warrant investigation and oversight from the legislative branch.

“With regard to reports that General Flynn had contact with the Russian Ambassador following the election, I believe the content of the phone call is important and warrants further inquiry. Also, I believe it is imperative to determine why individuals within the intelligence community would risk career, reputation, and possibly imprisonment to leak this information.

“I will not further speculate as to whether these actions were politically motivated or an effort to expose wrong doing, that should be left up to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees to address during their investigations.”

Isn't everything you do politically motivated! No matter what President Trump does, there will be a problem, we need so much help in this country to heal, or we aren't going to survive!

Pray for your Pres, stop complaining, he's done more for this country than Obama EVER did.....

I think that most trump supporters are realizing they were duped by this con man. He has NO business where he is, the whole mess is swirling down the drain and it's going to happen faster and faster. trump says that, "The media is to blame for Flynn losing his job". Because he broke the law and they reported it? I guess what he is saying that if he could have kept it hushed up and the media didn't hear about it, he wouldn't have "had his trust eroded" *as quoted by Spicy on Feb 14, 2017*. The sooner the GOP abandons him and runs him out of there, the better chance they will have in the mid-terms. Unfortunately, most Americans have a short memory and this will be long forgotten if it ends soon. To take the phrase that the trump followers have been steadily spewing but modify it a bit: " You were conned, get over it".
Am I gloating? Hell yes I'm gloating, I have seen that con man in action for decades and knew he was not capable when he announced his candidacy. He has BSed and bullied his staff for decades and BSed those who are less informed on politics. He paid his staff well for telling him he is "superbly great with fantastically wonderful business acumen". BTW, you can get the inside scoop on "roguepotus".com. They are a group that is secretly tweeting THE TRUTH from inside the WH. Did you hear that he called Mattis (Sec. Of Defense) last week to ask if a higher or lower dollar is better for the US economy! To which Mattis gently replied, "Call an economist". Shows trump's true intelligence, or lack thereof! I only want this nation to heal and the only way it will heal is to get rid of the disruptor in chief who thrives on the division and hatred. He cares nothing about this country, the only thing he cares about is money and will lie cheat and steal to get it. He has ZERO moral compass, he only worships money. That is all...carry on.

11.32, this is posr11.18, I wasn't complaining about President Trump, I was just saying, no matter what he does, the opposition will blame him, not me. We are in great trouble, but Obama put us there starting 8 years ago, not 8 months ago. I also was referring to Thompson when I inferred everything he is saying,as the article said was politically motivated. President Trump wants what is best for his people and the left will never agree!

Here's an idea, PASS TAX REFORM! Do something beneficial to the people.

What about the Obama supporters that were duped by him on his so called affordabale health care. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor and the same with your insurance. What a damn liar this jerk turned out to be. President Trump could do great things to help this country if they would just give him a chance and stop undermining everything he tries to do. The democrats are about as low as they come and those that are career ones need to be gone. Chuck Schumer is the lowest of them all right along with Nancy Pelosi and Mr. Cummings. Why is it that the democrats want this country destroyed? Do you think it would have been better with Hillary Clinton? She was going to carry on right where Obama left off. You can bet your life that Obama is not going to keep his nose out because he is so afraid that his legacy will be destroyed. He did nothing to protect the United States from terreroist. He was the biggest and worst president this country has ever had. Hillary was never punished for all the wrong doing that she has done and I would like to see her punished for crimes she has committed.

I hope the President is able to root out the treasonous elements within the Govt. The neo-con war machine insists on confrontation with Russia. They are a natural ally of conservative people all over the world.

Could you explain to us what law Flynn broke?

The data was shared with a host of congressional and senate committees, so it's a spin and a jump to say the leak came from the intel people. It's just as likely it came from congress.

It's also likely the motivation was pure patriotism; GT said it himself in his release, that these people risk their careers and face jail time for doing this, so there's probably a lot more to come from all this.

Trump was foolish to compare the intel people to Nazis. Very naive on his part.

All Americans need to keep an open mind about this stuff. NO red and blue right now; it's too important.

I'm glad to see GT mentioned finding out what actually happened between Trump's people and Russia, and not just focusing on the leaks. That't a good beginning. Too many in the GOP and right wing news outlets like Fox and the Wall Street Journal are deflecting the real story, that Russia was mixed up in our election, and too many of Trump's guys are up to their eyeballs in Ruskie doo-doo.

Can't blame Obama for any of this folks. Be a patriot, and keep focused on the real players.

NO IT SHOULD NOT BE LEFT UP TO THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEES

Why? So they can wheel and deal behind closed doors and protect the people they like while they choose who takes the fall?

This requires a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR and an INDEPENDENT investigation. Just like ANY OTHER investigation would be if this were a Democrat.

That which grows in shadow but withers in the light of day is not meant for the vine. Public independent investigation or these guys are EVEN BIGGER CROOKS than the ones you've been complaining about for the last decade.

12:27, Flynn actually DID NOT break the law when he contacted the Russian Ambassador. Nonetheless, this is troubling.

You would have to be an idiot to think liberals would do a better job than Trump ! Liberals are afraid of loosing their gravy train so they hate trump ! I know liberals in this area that brag about much money and stuff they have while all the time they are collecting government benefits ! Even the one in business cheats on his taxes so he gets free health insurance and free lunches for his kids plus much more talk about being a hypocrite !

Maybe Trump supporters should quite their jobs say F, it let everyone and anyone into the country. I mean why not if the far left is willing to support that sort of behavior with free health care and hand outs I say let them pay the tab. Oh that's right most of the far left don't have a job no wonder they have time to mass protest and act like babies throwing a tantrum aww do the little babies need to go to their safe room with their crayons and coloring books now don't forget your milk and cookies cup cake. Give me a freaking break!!

Hey 1227, people who talk too much are just trying to justify themselves, if you're explaining you're losing.
"Did you hear" that Obama called Hillary and asked her how to fry chicken and she laughed and told him to ask the Whitehouse chef.?

President Trump said in his eye's Mr. Flynn did no wrong but someone leaked confidential information about Mr. Flynn and Mr. Flynn did not follow procedure and tell the Vice President and when questioned about it Mr. Flynn could not remember so President Trump had to dismiss him

9.05, Gt is just a wind bag trying to impress his expletive any way he can, showing up at the events to impress you to vote for him. How this worked, I'll never know, even though I'm on the same party, doesn't mean I voted for him or another worth less politician on our ballot..When money is evolved they will say and do anything to accumulate votes and more money. Give President Trump a chance, it couldn't be anywhere as bad as what we've dealt with for the last eight years!

Trump is so cool. Its nice to have a real human in office. Self-made man who doesn't take any bullpoop from anyone and you libs cant stand it.

Coal is Dead...Gas is King said...

Umm. Wasn't Obama a Senator PRIOR to being president? I guess that's some political experience, I think........
Flynn broke the law because he as a PRIVATE citizen CANNOT deal with a foreign government on behalf of the US government. When he contacted the Russian ambassador on Dec. 25, he was a private citizen. Even in a hostage and ransom case, it is illegal. Mr. Flynn then lied about until he and trump were confronted with the transcripts by the FBI and others. He then lied to the VP about his conversation, the VP went on national TV and was embarrassed because he was misinformed by trump and Flynn. It was the "media's fault Flynn got fired"'as trump stated? Because the press reported it I guess. He knew for 3 weeks but never said a word about it, not even to his VP. Once word got out, trump had to fire Flynn because he knew they were busted. The fellow is clearly delusional and it's becoming clearer even to the GOP party loyalists, Mitch McConnell included. I heard from a "reliable source" that Flynn was telling the Russians that trump would ease the sanctions if they won't release the video tapes of trump in Russia with prostitutes. That along with no mention of the MILLIONS owed to Russia by trump because US banks wouldn't loan him money because of all his failing businesses. These facts were all mentioned on various news sources, so look them up and get back to me OK? As someone said, "You were duped! Get over it". Fox News said, How many days until the midterms? Better act soon GOP. BTW, where is the unemployment rate? How's the GDP ratio? How many companies have reported positive earnings for consecutive years? How many Americans now have health insurance that didn't have it 8 years ago? Oh, Ms. Devos says YOU WILL PAY MORE IN SCHOOL TAXES BECAUSE SHE WANTS MORE PRIVATE SCHOOLS VS. PUBLIC SCHOOLS. Better cut back on the beer bill a little bit! Mema said so....so did PopPop and Uncle Tyquan and Aunt Shaniqua.

So Trump continues violating the US emoluments law this weekend. We taxpayers are paying another $3,000,000 so he can have a "campaign rally" in FL. The bill for SS agents hotel rooms is paid to Mara-lago. Federal emoluments law again. That is illegal and 19 state Attorneys General have filed federal lawsuits. Next weekend..$3,000,000.....$3,000,000. BTW, where are his accomplishments? Other than in his mind? Jobs created? ZERO. Factories moving to US? ZERO. He said nobody has done more than him in 4 weeks! True...utter chaos, lying, back stabbing, resignations, firings. I stand corrected. That is a lot of accomplishments. Says WH is running like a fine tuned machine. Are you kidding me?
Do you backers see his pattern now? He's backed into the corner and comes out swinging, blaming everyone else, he's the victim, he's going to sue. He continues to throw up smokescreens to try to hide the real issues.unfair, mean people, lies. Not this time, he is in wayyy over his head and cannot get out of it this time by being a bully. Great thing though, the press is not going to lay down like his friends and family do.
Just curious, Isn't Melania Russian? Or of Baltic descent? Could there be more to this story? Hmmm..the plot sickens!

Actually 1:01 the far left are the professional people and those who can afford it, they believe in helping those who need it! Such as the lower income wage earners who need some help, the rural red necks who are too misinformed to understand they were conned. The "left" still wants to help you and yours. They aren't angry, they don't want your family to starve so they are reaching a hand out to help you. That is the left, societal safety nets from those who have, to help those who don't. YOU, MY FRIEND ARE WRONG ON THAT ASSUMPTION. Mull it over at the beer garden tonight while your kids struggle with their homework.

5.03 what a sick bunch of Lies! He hasn't had time to undue what your great obama has screwed up. He spent 8 years and the only focus he had were the rights of people who do not live the same marriage or sexual desires as many of us do. I'm not judging their rights or their way of life but to only accomplish marriage rights, bathroom rights and gender rights is an injustice. I have a 15 year old grandchild, and when asked what was the most important news etc. Was, this child said (in school) that it was the rights of these people. This child is a straight A student, academic agenda. These kids have been led to believe war, inflation, terrorism etc.were not worthy causes because all the news of that President were focused on those rights of these people. I'm glad this student has the compassion to understand and commiserate with the groups, but they also need to know Life! Killary lost, get over it and grow up!

Sales of Kleenex tissues increased 48.2% in the days immediately following the election of President Trump and 64% of those sales were paid for with EBT cards.
That's close to the number of 'Terrible Towels' (Pittsburgh crying towels) after Pittsburgh's last Superbowl loss. Nuff Sed

Dear Mr. Liberal if you are so caring and generous why don't you give us red necks and have-nots half your cash. Maybe 50% would be adequate. You go to work and earn all the money and then give me half. It would be kind of like being married, maybe you can go to work and give your husband half.

YOU LIBERALS NEED TO GET OVER YOUR LOSS!!!!!

We don't even know what was said during that conversation! Flynn made over 30 calls to foreign nations as part of his job during the campaign. His phone was bugged or intercepted, which points to FBI or Cia involvement or a mole. We only have part of the equation, which does demand an inquiry into who commited treason with the leak. As far as our president is concerned I BELIEVE he is doing a great job for the amount of time he has been in office.
