Senate Panel Issues Two More Subpoenas To Flynn

Senate Panel Issues Two More Subpoenas To Flynn

The House Oversight Committee has accused Mr Flynn of misleading the Pentagon about his contacts with and payments from foreign governments when he applied for renewed security clearance previous year.

Any deal involving immunity would require discussion with Robert Mueller, the special counsel appointed last week to oversee the criminal investigation into Russia's meddling in last year's USA presidential election.

One subpoena has been served and another is in the process of being served, he added.

The department said Sessions' staff relied on the guidance of the FBI investigator handling the background check, who advised that meetings with foreign dignitaries "connected with Senate activities" did not have to be reported on the form. The committee asked for a specific list of documents from the businesses, arguing that corporations are not endowed with Fifth Amendment privileges.

"Anybody who gets close to this investigation loses their job or ends up in a hard position", he said, before listing Flynn, Comey, fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

On Wednesday morning, the top Democrat on the committee said it would subpoena Flynn in its probe into alleged Russian meddling in the presidential election after he declined to appear before the panel.

The intelligence panels are among five congressional committees looking into the allegations involving links between Russian Federation and Mr Trump's November 8 victory.

As valuable as Gen. Flynn is to our counterintelligence investigation, we don't believe it's our place to offer him immunity.

In its report, the New York Times said some Russians boasted about how well they knew Flynn, who was subsequently named Trump's national security adviser before being dismissed less than a month after the Republican took office.

Leaders of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence say they have issued subpoenas for documents from two businesses operated by former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Former CIA Director John Brennan testified on Capitol Hill about interactions between President Trump's campaign and Russian officials during the... He also referred to past reports that the White House asked allies on Capitol Hill to refute negative press stories about Trump associates' ties to Russian Federation.

Trump, now on a nine-day global trip, has had his own conversations with the Russians questioned in light of reports that he shared extremely classified intelligence with Russian diplomats in the Oval Office on May 10.

His attorney indicated that Flynn would testify in exchange for immunity back in March - a ploy that seemed created to muck up any external criminal investigation of Flynn.

At the far end that scale is holding Flynn in contempt of Congress - the first step in seeking Justice Department support to enforce the orders.

While Flynn decides what, if anything, he'll provide to Congress, the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform said the Federal Bureau of Investigation will not be turning over memos and other materials that detail discussions between Comey and Trump. Flynn had rejected the earlier subpoena for records as being so broad that providing them could make him vulnerable.

Burr said the committee was still interested in taking Flynn's testimony. Page has denied any involvement in Russian attempts to influence the election.
