Hannity: 'It Was San Francisco's Sanctuary City Policies That Killed Kate Steinle'


Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) spoke to reporters this afternoon after the announcement that Gen. Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office announced the charge before Flynn appeared in a Virginia courtroom Friday morning to enter the plea. 

The false statements related to Flynn's contact with Russian officials, according to the special counsel. 

Warner, the ranking member on the Senate Intelligence Committee, was asked whether he believes Flynn will implicate President Trump.

Warner said any individual deserves "the benefit of the doubt," but that the investigations, including by his committee, must go on.

He noted that it's a "bit curious" to see Flynn only plead guilty to one charge, since Trump's former national security adviser seemed to have "exposure" on more serious offenses.

Warner noted that it's the second Trump campaign associate to plead guilty to making false statements, while former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy are facing a slew of charges. 

"My hope is that General Flynn will tell everything he knows and tell why he was having these contacts with Russians, who directed these contacts. I think it goes well beyond the fact that he just lied to the FBI," said Warner.
