Congressman Krishnamoorthi Reacts To Flynn Guilty Plea: “Any Action by the President to End the Mueller Investigation Would Rise to an Impeachable Offense”

December 1, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement in response to the announcement of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s guilty plea:

“Michael Flynn’s guilty plea is a disturbing revelation, but the truth must come to light.

Special Counsel Mueller's investigation must continue unimpeded. Any action by the President to end the Mueller investigation would rise to an impeachable offense.

We must remember that President Trump reportedly fired former FBI Director James Comey after asking him to lay off the investigation of Michael Flynn. That action appeared at the time to be dangerously close to, if not, obstruction of justice. Any action taken now by President Trump to end Mueller’s investigation would harken back to the Saturday night massacre.”
