Flynn puts FBI director back in spotlight
The hill by Katie Bo Williams -
The spotlight is back on FBI Director James Comey thanks to Michael Flynn’s resignation as national security adviser.
Comey, whom Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign blamed for her loss in last year’s presidential election, is now reportedly presiding over an investigation that appears to have implicated one of President Trump’s top aides.
Republicans and Democrats alike are watching closely, putting pressure on the bureau for a public accounting.
Democrats want to know exactly what Flynn said to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak — and on whose orders — amid ongoing scrutiny into a widespread influence campaign by Moscow intended to help install Trump in the White House.
