Former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn did not "break any laws" in talking to the Russian ambassador — and his successor, Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, "is going to give very strong advice" about ways to protect the United States, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said Tuesday.

"There is a lot of innuendo about General Flynn out there," the California Republican told Jake Tapper on CNN. "Gen. Flynn is a Russia hawk.

"I've had my reservations about dealing with [President Vladimir] Putin and the Russians," he added. "I think he's a totally dishonest actor.

"But I don't believe for a second that Gen. Flynn talking to the Russian ambassador broke any laws," Nunes told Tapper. "In fact, it's exactly what he should have been doing.

"The record, in the long run, will show that he was trying to improve relations between our two countries."

Nunes, 43, who was first elected in 2012, said that McMaster — whom President Donald Trump named to the post on Monday, "is going to give very sound advice — and he'll be a strong voice of reason.

"He's an intellectual heavyweight in the White House that I think anyone having him around is going to be very thankful for."
