Senate Intelligence Committee Presses For Flynn Documents
May 26, 2017, 12:58
Congressional investigators on Tuesday issued a fresh warning to Michael Flynn to turn over documents pertaining to the investigation of Russian interference in the United States election, escalating pressure on Donald Trump's former national security adviser to either comply or risk being held in contempt. This time, they are targeting his businesses, Flynn Intel LLC and Flynn Intel Inc., Committee Chairman Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) said on Tuesday.
Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn could face a criminal charge of contempt of Congress if the Senate Intelligence Committee isn't pleased with his response to its latest round of subpoenas, the committee leadership announced Tuesday afternoon.
Vice Chair Mark Warner (D-VA) additionally said the committee would subpoena Flynn's businesses, some of which he said engaged in unauthorized, unregistered lobbying on behalf of a foreign power.
A person close to Mr. Flynn said his legal team has received two business-record subpoenas and is reviewing them. "We would like to hear from Gen Flynn".
The subpoena delivery follows recent activity concerning the investigation into Russian Federation.
Brennan said he believed he was the first USA official to raise the matter of election interference with the Russians, citing a phone conversation he had on August 4 past year with FSB head Alexander Bortnikov.
As the hearings get back underway at the Senate Intelligence Committee with Mueller leading the way, the nation waits for the other shoe to fall. We suspect that any lawyer he consults during this political crisis will tell him the same. A retired Army lieutenant general, Flynn became one of Trump's closest campaign advisers two months after he was paid in 2015 to speak at a Moscow gala, where he was seated next to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"If all of this is part of a pattern of interference by the White House or worse, we have to find out", Schiff said at a Washington, DC, breakfast, according to the cable news network.
The attempts to compel Mr Flynn to produce documents were another sign of the intense focus on Mr Trump's former national security adviser, who was sacked in February after the White House said he misled administration officials, including vice president Mike Pence, about his contacts with Russian officials. And the Washington Postreported earlier this week that Trump asked Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers to push back on the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.
"We must pursue that investigation with vigor, no matter who might stand in the way of it". Burr left open the possibility that they could hold Flynn in contempt if he would not comply with their demands.
