    But Flynn's subterfuge in hiding his conversation may indicate there is indeed something untoward he's trying to cover-up.

    Which is why there needs to be an investigation, or at least a release of the transcript (redacted or otherwise). There's no reason to not have transparency here, letting this fester and cause unrest.

    But I'll add one more comment: Flynn's security clearance was revoked yesterday. That's a big deal, IMO.
    I do not necessarily "need" to hear the tapes....but I would my representatives to have access to them and discuss how they were obtained.

    But realistically, is it about what Flynn said, or whether he was being dishonest with the VP?

    Greetings, CJ.

    Sure! Besides, if Plan A hadn't worked, the alphabet does have 25 more letters...

    Release the tape, (tapes) and while at it release the documents on the Iran deal that not even most of Congress can view.

    I'm a bit late on this, but yeah - it's the content of the conversation.

    I'd like to know exactly what transpired between him & the Russian intelligence guys.

    The leaker is almost certainly an intelligence customer who was briefed on the transcript, not an intelligence officer in possession of it. That's why the tape or transcript has not leaked; it's in safe intelligence professional hands.
