Michael Flynn Subpoenaed By Senate Intelligence Committee For Records

Now former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn

The Senate Intelligence Committee - using its subpoena power for the first time since 9-11 demanded documents on Russian Federation from fired National Security Adviser Mike Flynn. Mark Warner, the committee's Democratic vice chairman, issued a joint statement saying the panel made a decision to issue the subpoena after Flynn, through his lawyer, declined to cooperate with an April 28 request to turn over the documents. Richard Burr, R-N.C., chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and Sen. In announcing the subpoena, the Senate Intelligence Committee said that Flynn "declined, through counsel, to cooperate with the Committee's request".

In testimony before the House intelligence committee in March, Comey testified that the FBI was investigating possible collusion between Trump associates and Russian officials and other Russians known to U.S. intelligence as part of its broader, ongoing counter-intelligence investigation.

The committee is conducting an investigation into Moscow's alleged meddling in last year's presidential election.

President Trump abruptly fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey on Tuesday.

A January report from the USA intelligence community concluded that Russian Federation did indeed meddle in the election, but Mr. Trump has been ambivalent on the issue.

Both the Trump administration and Russian Federation deny any involvement in the alleged activity.

Comey was set to testify before the Intelligence Committee Thursday, but Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe will take his place.

In March, Flynn's lawyer, Robert Kelner, requested "assurances against unfair prosecution" in exchange for Flynn giving testimony to the panel.

Flynn was sacked by Trump in February after published reports that the national security adviser had misled Vice President Pence about his discussions with the Russian ambassador to the United States.

The top Democrat and Republican on a House oversight committee have said that Flynn likely broke federal law by failing to get approval from the USA government to accept foreign payments and not disclosing them after accepting them.
