Because the congress's hands are tied unless the minority party demands investigations...where do you think the leaks come from?
They come from the Trump inner circle, jockeying for power, that's why no investigation, they already know the answer and they don't want it made public.

And Yeah, Who in the Obama administration OK'd monitoring communications with foreign governments by private citizens...OH, wait, we've done that since the 1700's.

The real question is, who appointed a guy who didn't know that communications with foreign governments were routinely monitored to be National Security Advisor?
Thanks from GhostRider

Supposedly, if Iran held the hostages until after the election and Reagan won, the Reagan administration would ship Iran parts for F-14s and other American made weapons systems.
The hostages were released on Reagan's inauguration day, and the Reagan administration secretly authorized Israel to ship the parts to Iran almost immediately after, although it was another 10 years before the evidence emerged.

I find the FreeBeacon to be right wing nonsense, does it explain how the Obama officials got Flynn to violate the law, while wiretapped?

This has been disproven numerous times by many people.

Iran had ordered F-16's but that order was cancelled after the revolution.

So right there that story falls apart.

What law are you referring to? The 'Logan Act'? Which has never been enforced in 215+ years, that the one? The one that is likely unconstitutional? That the one?

How about when candidate Øbama went on his foreign policy tour in 2008?

Or in the 1980's the 'Dear Comandante' letter? Did you, or the MSM, or the Democrats not signing that letter cry 'Logan Act' then?

http://www.nytimes.com/1984/04/20/us...omandante.html

Many examples of Democrats, did we hear a cry from you, from the MSM, from the Democrat Party, about the 'Logan Act'? And a few years after that 'Act' became law the Pennsylvania Legislature elected Logan a U.S. Senator. And later in life, c.1810, Logan went on another private peace mission, yet no one tried to enforce the 'Act'.

And you neatly sidestep the facts that it was the Øbama administration which listened in on Flynn's conversations.
