Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen said Friday she backs a congressional investigation into Russia and its ties to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Ros-Lehtinen, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said such an investigation should include "former and current officials of our government."
"Our House Intelligence Committee, of which I am a member, has undertaken a Russia investigation and a bipartisan investigative team has been formed to examine documents," she said in a statement. "As the spokesperson for our Committee said yesterday, we aren't excluding anyone or any entity from our examination and we expect to be interviewing former and current officials of our government. I hope that a report issued following the investigation will be made available to the public."
