“Every one of them is already public knowledge.”

That’s what Congressman Kelly Armstrong said on this episode of Plain Talk. He was referring to the information about alleged obstruction by the Trump administration from the Mueller report which the Congressman had been reviewing ahead of the interview. He praised Trump for “unprecedented transparency” in dealing with Mueller’s team.

Of Russian spying, “it was on Obama’s watch and they didn’t do anything until they got a FISA warrant for the Trump campaign,” Armstrong said.

The Congressman also reacted to a House subcommittee meeting on North Dakota’s voter ID laws held on the Standing Rock Reservation. He said the committee doesn’t “know how we do things in North Dakota,” which he meant as criticism of their decision not to invite more state leaders. “It’s unfortunate they didn’t ask me I would have come,” he said.
