Richardson: 'This Was Not a Good Day for the Trump Admin'
Former Gov. Bill Richardson (D-N.M.) said the afternoon hearing regarding Gen. Michael Flynn [Ret.] and Russian interference in the 2016 election capped-off a bad day for the White House.
"This was not a good day for the Trump administration," Richardson said.
He said that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who testified at the hearing, are two career officials who have served in Republican and Democratic administrations.
Richardson said the two officials' resumes precede them and legitimize their testimony.
"Just because she was acting attorney general [under Obama] she did what she thought was right."
"Flynn misled his own administration," Richardson said.
He said the call for an independent commission to look into the entire "Russian collusion" situation was "emanating" from the three-hour hearing.
