U.S. Representative Peter J. Roskam released the following statement:
"Russian attempts to infiltrate and undermine democratic institutions across the western world are of grave concern to me. I've led solidarity missions to Ukraine and Georgia and spent time with their diaspora communities in Illinois and across the United States. We must stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our friends and allies who suffer the consequences of Russian aggression and intimidation.
"I'm deeply troubled to learn former National Security Advisor Flynn misled the Vice President. He was fired -- and deservedly so.
"In the coming days and weeks I will be looking into this matter more closely."
