Prof. Painter Interviewed on MPR News About Trump Administration’s Ethics, Conflicts of Interests After Michael Flynn Resignation

Professor Richard Painter—former chief ethics lawyer for the George W. Bush administration—was interviewed by Tom Weber of MPR News about the meaning of Michael Flynn’s resignation, as well as the importance of continued investigation of alleged Russian interference in United States politics. “The Michael Flynn episode is just one person who was compromised with respect to Russia, but Russia has been making efforts to infiltrate the United States political system for decades,” said Painter.
