Trump lawyers push back against Russia ties in letter

CNN: Grand jury subpoenas issued in FBI's Russia investigation

The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has ordered former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to hand over records related to the Russian Federation investigation, according to a statement on the committee's website.

Questions over Flynn's ties to Russian officials and how that may have connected to his role as a top adviser to Donald Trump's campaign, and later as Trump's first National Security Adviser, come amid multiple investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential race. Flynn, but he declined, through counsel, to cooperate with the committee's request, " the panel leaders said.

In a joint statement, Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., said that Flynn had declined an earlier request to provide the records voluntarily.

Flynn is one of four former Trump aides that Senate investigators sent requests to. They were issued from the U.S. Attorney's Office in Alexandria, Virginia, and were received by former associates of Flynn's.

Flynn was sacked by Trump in February after less than a month on the job. Flynn is being investigated for taking lobbying payments as a foreign agent while working on Trump's campaign and transition team.

"I've said from the beginning that our intentions are to get information from all the individuals of interest, and I will go to whatever lengths I feel necessary", Burr said in a brief hallway interview at the Capitol, hours before Trump fired Comey on Tuesday.

It will be McCabe's first public appearance since Trump fired Director James Comey, calling into question the future of the the FBI's own investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and Trump campaign associates. Each has offered to testify in Congressional probes.

Republican Senate intelligence committee member Senator James Lankford told Fox News Wednesday that the subpoena is for "a large number of documents".
