Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, released the following statement after the resignation of National Security Advisor, General Flynn:

"I am grateful for the many years General Flynn honorably served our country. But the President and Vice President must be able to trust their advisors completely and given the current situation I agree that General Flynn could no longer serve effectively as National Security Advisor."

"In addition to the breach of trust, I am alarmed to yet again see an example of very sensitive information being leaked to the public. As a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, I am troubled by the seemingly continuous leaks of classified information and the national security problems they inevitably cause. I am committed to ending those leaks.”
