Congressman Dave Loebsack released the following statement today after Gen. Michael Flynn announced his resignation as National Security Advisor.

“Reports of Mr. Flynn's interactions with Russian officials prior to President Trump's swearing in, along with his dishonesty about those conversations, certainly disqualify him from serving as National Security Advisor. It is also appropriate that he heeded the many calls for his resignation. This incident raises further questions regarding the nature of Russia's influence with the Trump administration, and it is imperative that an independent investigation is conducted. With the security of the American people at stake, immediate action must be taken. I call on Republican congressional leaders to hold hearings into Mr. Flynn's actions, as well as into the administration's ties to Russia.”
