Rep. Rice on Flynn: Trump Chose To Do Nothing Until It Became Public
RICE: "Well, it's not just what I want know and what everyone here in Washington wants to know. Wolf, it's what the American people deserve to know. Now, up until the past month, these were all allegations. They were rumors. Donald Trump would say I love these leaks, it's great, Russia, go get all these e-mails that Hillary Clinton is missing. But now that it's coming back at him, now that we know for a fact -- look, I spent 30 years, almost 30 years as a prosecutor before I came here to Washington three years ago. So, I'm very fact and evidence oriented. The facts are indisputable. There is no question Mike Flynn had a conversation with Russian intelligence people before trump was sworn in. There is no question about it. There's no question that he lied to Mike Pence about it, the vice-president. There is no question that President Trump found out about this three weeks ago, 2 1/2 weeks ago, and chose to do nothing until it became public. Now, what that says is he's interested, President Trump is interested in having a very secret administration and that's not what the public deserves, right? We need more clarity here."
