In the News…

The growing evidence of possible misconduct in the investigation of Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn carried out by the FBI under Director James Comey is an opportunity to seriously shine a light on the politicization of the bureau from the previous administration, Congressman Doug Collins said.

He said there is a need to do more to probe, among other things, the possible misuse of applications to the FISA Courts.

He stressed that “If there is not anybody held responsible for this, then… there would be a tearing down of trust between the American people and the Department of Justice and the FBI.”
