Disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's legal problems are only getting worse. After being fired for lying about his conversations with a Russian ambassador, officials are investigating whether he broke the law by taking money from foreign governments. But the White House has blocked an Oversight Committee request for files on Flynn, and spokesman Sean Spicer blamed Barack Obama for failing to vet Flynn properly. Do we need an investigation of Flynn to straighten this out?

Even the previously empathetic Republican House Oversight Committee Chair Jason Chaffetz is saying that Flynn’s actions may have violated federal law.

Others think Flynn is being hounded by a scandal-crazed media and Democrats who are out for blood.
