With the growing controversy, and confusion, surrounding Michael Flynn’s resignation as Trump’s national security advisor, many Americans were hoping this might merit a hearing within the House of Representatives.
People want to know if Gen. Flynn was asked to offer up his resignation because of his improper, maybe treasonous, contacts with Russia prior to Trump assuming office or was he asked to leave because he ‘inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding … phone calls with the Russian Ambassador.”
House Oversight Committee chairman, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R), is not too concerned about the growing political brouhaha. He believes investigating the Flynn matter, at this point, is unnecessary since it is “taking care of itself.”
Chaffetz did not, however, rule out a probe at a later date.
“Our schedule is pretty much set right now. We will begin our next hearing into Hillary Clinton and Benghazi early next week. Once that is done … we’re hoping by the end of the year … we will look into the Flynn matter, if it is still an issue.”
Caution: This could be fake news
