National Security Advisor Michael Flynn submitted his resignation after Justice Department officials allege Flynn had inappropriate discussions with a Russian Ambassador about White House sanctions prior to Trump taking office.
It's also alleged that Flynn mislead Vice President Pence and other administration officials about those conversations.
The administration says it knew about the allegations for weeks before it was leaked to the press.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told the press corps today the administration wanted time to get more information.
Pennsylvania's Senators say they too want to know more.
"If he was dishonest he needed to go but there is clearly some questions that need to be addressed. I hope out intelligence committee will very thoroughly review that and get to the bottom of that," said Senator Pat Toomey.
Toomey says he wants to know exactly how the intelligence community got the information about the conversation, if there was a warrant issued and where the leaks tipping off the media came from.
Senator Bob Casey says he wants to know what the White House knew and when they knew it.
Casey saying this is a matter important to national security, tweeting:
"Gen. Flynn's resignation only furthers the need for an independent investigation into any possible links between Russia and Trump Admin."
Now the hunt begins for Flynn's replacement.
But Casey and Toomey say no matter who replaces him, the questions surrounding these allegations need to be answered.
