WASHINGTON, February 15. /TASS/. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said it was "highly likely" that the Senate Intelligence Committee will investigate former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn for his contacts with Russia.
"The intelligence committee is already looking at Russian involvement in our election ... it's highly likely they'd want to take a look at this episode, they have the jurisdiction to do it," McConnell told a regular press briefing.·
. "Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador. I have sincerely apologized to the President and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology," Flynn said in his resignation letter.
Claims published by the Washington Post earlier suggested Flynn had discussed the US anti-Russian sanctions with the Russian Ambassador in Washington, Sergei Kislyak. The telephone consultations presumably took place a month prior to the inauguration of President Donald Trump.
The Washington Post said some officials in the administration thought the talks between the would-be national security adviser and the Russian ambassador might have sent an irrational and theoretically incorrect signal to Moscow and the sanctions, which the Obama administration had introduced in the wake of the 2014 reunification of Crimea and Sevastopol with Russia, could be eased.
