Eric Swalwell: ‘It Looks Like’ Trump Didn’t Care About Flynn’s Ties to Russia

‘This is what Donald Trump said throughout the campaign — We should have a relationship with Russia’

EXCERPT:

SWALWELL: “Chris, it looks like they didn’t care. You know, some people may argue, 'Well, was the White House incompetent in not looking at all this evidence of Michael Flynn being paid by Russia?' I think they just didn’t care. This is what Donald Trump said throughout the campaign. 'We should have a relationship with Russia, NATO’s role should be reduced, that sanctions perhaps could be lifted. Thankfully, because of what we have shined on — the prior ties — they are right now I think frozen on what they can do with Russia. But if they had it their way, I don’t think that would be the case.”
