Maryland Democrats Press for Flynn-Russia Probe

WASHINGTON (AP) — Maryland Democratic lawmakers whose committees have jurisdiction over foreign policy and investigations on Tuesday urged a probe into the resignation of national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn and the full scope of the Trump administration’s dealings with Russia.


Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., told Capital News Service that Flynn’s communications with Russia requires a congressional probe.

“The first thing we need to do is have an independent commission and investigate what was done, why Russia did what it did, how it did what it did, what its intentions (are),” said Cardin, who is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
