Illinois’s two U.S. Senators are both weighing in on the guilty plea by President Trump’s former national security advisor.
Tammy Duckworth issued a statement saying Michael Flynn’s admission that he lied to federal investigators is deeply troubling. She says there must be further investigation into whether Flynn abused his power on behalf of foreign interests… and into whether Trump directed or had knowledge of his actions.
Durbin’s much shorter statement says only that Flynn’s guilty plea is “significant,” and that Durbin has confidence in special counsel Robert Mueller.
