Tom Perez on Flynn Charges

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after the Justice Department charged President Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn with making false statements to the FBI:

“This time, the president can’t get away with claiming these charges aren’t about his inner circle’s contacts with Russia, and he can’t dismiss Michael Flynn as some low-level aide. This development should serve as a clear signal to Republicans in Congress that it is time to take this investigation seriously and stop making excuses for the president’s attempts to interfere with it. Democrats will not stand by as Trump’s enablers in Congress betray the American people, undermine our democracy, and endanger our national security. It’s time for Republicans to commit to protecting this investigation and preserving the rule of law.”
