security adviser mike flynn, and it does not mean that he's necessarily done anything wrong or committed a crime, but he may know information that they need in this investigation. here's why that's significant. we know that jared kushner had at least two meetings with russian officials, with the russian ambassador and with a banker out of russia who, by the way, used to be an intelligence trainee that came under scrutiny of u.s. sanctions for three years. that information may aid in this investigation. what's his attorney say about it? take a look. his attorney says that kushner has cooperated with congress and he will cooperate with any other inquiry. the justice department isn't saying a lot at all. in fact, take a look at this statement. they're saying neither confirming nor denying that there's an investigation. of course, we already know that from testimony here. nor are they confirming or denying that
