Senate panel subpoenas Flynn for Russia-related documents

Senate panel subpoenas Flynn for Russia-related documents

In March, Flynn reportedly sought immunity in exchange for testifying before the committees investigating potential ties to Russian Federation.

The subpoenas indicate a broadening of the FBI's investigation started last July into possible ties between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation.

"The subpoena requests documents relevant to the Committee's investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election".

In addition, former President Obama warned Donald Trump last fall against hiring Flynn, three officials familiar with the conversation confirmed to CBS News' Major Garrett. The Russian government-funded news outlet that U.S. intelligence agencies say played a key role in disseminating stolen emails meant to damage the candidacy of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Associates of former National Security Michael Flynn are the targets of grand jury subpoenas.

Flynn's attorney, the Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the US Attorney's office in Alexandria have all declined to comment on this revelation, which is fine, because honestly, what could they really say?

Stone said today that he will "fully comply" with the Senate intelligence committee's request for information and documents relating to its Russian Federation investigation.




During the campaign, Trump had expressed admiration for Russia's Vladimir Putin.

Michael Flynn, then National Security Advisor to US President Donald J. Trump, is seen here attending a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the East Room of the White House in Washington, DC, USA, 10 February 2017.

Flynn is one of four former Trump aides that Senate investigators sent requests to.

The retired Army lieutenant general is also being investigated by other congressional committees and by the Pentagon's inspector general regarding his contacts and earnings from organisations linked to the Russian and Turkish governments.

In March, Kelner said in a statement that Flynn had a "story to tell", but said no reasonable person would agree to be questioned by the committee without "assurances against unfair prosecution".

That was her last day at the Department of Justice.
