Statement from DFL Chairman Ken Martin on
FBI Investigation of Trump

“Today we learned that Donald Trump is officially under investigation by the FBI. This is a new low for a president who has spent his first two months in office making outrageous claims about anyone who holds him accountable for his blatant lies and disregard for America’s future.

“The FBI’s ‘counterintelligence investigation’ is focused on the extent of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. Hopefully the investigation will dig deeper than just who leaked the relationship between former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the Russians. Americans deserve to know how deep the links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government go and just how much this relationship compromised the safety of our country.

“This is not a partisan issue, but rather an issue of national security. For a party that prides itself on patriotism, the lengths they are going to evade the truth are treasonous. The public has a right to know if any crimes were committed during last year’s election and if yes, by who and what the consequences will be.”
