Senate intel chairman: No decision from Flynn on honoring subpoena

Senate intel chairman: No decision from Flynn on honoring subpoena

Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina had to retract a statement made hours earlier that Flynn's lawyer had told the committee he would not comply with the subpoena.

Meanwhile, Trump reportedly regrets firing Flynn and is passing him "warm messages" through his staff, as one does to the person foreboding your impeachment.

Pelosi also ridiculed Trump's complaint about a "witch hunt" following the naming of a special counsel to investigate possible Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation. The White House has said the firing was unrelated to the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

NY [U.S.], May 19:: Senate Intelligence Committeee Chairman Richard Burr has accused the former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, of not cooperating with the investigation into Russians meddling in the U.S. Presidential election. "Once again, the real story is that our national security has been undermined by the leaking of private and highly classified conversations".

Former FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify in open session at the Senate Intel Committee Sen.

Burr says he would welcome Flynn's willingness to cooperate.

Once Yates' conversations with the White House over Flynn became public, Trump let his national security adviser go on February 13. Flynn had previously worked for the Turkish government. "We'll figure out on General Flynn what the next step, if any, is". At the time, Trump said he fired Flynn because he misled senior administration officials, including the vice president, about his contacts with Russian officials.

Concerns that Flynn was compromised were so strong that US intelligence officials went out of their way to hide information from him.

They include a $110bn (£84bn) deal which will see the kingdom buy U.S. arms to help it counter threats from Iran - and Mr Trump said the agreement will mean jobs, jobs, jobs for people in the States.




That comment referred to revelations that he divulged classified information about an Islamic State threat in his May 10 meeting in the Oval Office with Russia's foreign minister and ambassador. The U.S. has rebuffed those calls.

However, it has not been alleged that Trump told the Russians that Israel was the source.

She asked, "How did he spell witch hunt?" a reference to Trump's frequent misspellings on Twitter. "If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?"

This is the second time he has declined to cooperate with a request from the Senate committee. In March, the committee rejected Flynn's request for immunity from prosecution.

During a press conference last week, Trump denied that allegation. The letter notes that the time frame of the request was January 16, 2015, through January 20, 2017.

"The committee could decide to go ahead and not worry about Mueller", Ginsberg said, but that could create new legal complications for Mueller's probe.

He said he hopes Mr Comey's testimony will answer some of the questions that have arisen since the Federal Bureau of Investigation director was suddenly dismissed last week by President Trump.

The Senate Intelligence Committee said the public hearing headlined by Comey will be scheduled at some point after Memorial Day.
