Senate issues subpoenas targeting Michael Flynn's businesses

Senate issues subpoenas targeting Michael Flynn's businesses

Flynn had rejected the earlier subpoena for records as being so broad that providing them could make him vulnerable.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, investigating Russian meddling in USA 2016 election, has asked President Donald Trump's political organization to hand over all documents going back the campaign's launch in June 2015, the Washington Post reported on Friday, citing two people briefed on the request.

"We've been very specific in the documents now that we've requested from General Flynn", Burr said.

Brennan's testimony before the House intelligence committee on Tuesday comes one day after Flynn invoked his constitutional right against self-incrimination in response to a subpoena from the Senate intelligence committee.

"It should be clear to everyone that Russian Federation brazenly interfered in our 2016 present election process" and did so despite strong protests and his warning, he said.

A federal grand jury in Virginia also has issued subpoenas regarding Flynn's business dealings with Turkey and Russian Federation, and the newly appointed special counsel investigating the Russian Federation matter, Robert Mueller III, is expected to focus on Flynn's role as well.

U.S. intelligence sources said some Russians boasted about how well they knew Mr Flynn and others pushed to exploit Mr Manafort through his relationship with Viktor Yanukovych, the deposed president of Ukraine who was living in Russia and was an ally of Vladimir Putin.

Mr Brennan said he delivered a telephone warning to his Russian counterpart, the head of the FSB spy agency, against meddling in August past year, two months before USA intelligence chiefs went public with their belief that Russia was trying to manipulate the election in Mr Trump's favour.

"They clearly had a more favorable view toward Mr. Trump and actions they were taking were trying to increase his prospects, even though they probably thought they were not that great", Brennan said.

The House Intelligence Committee will soon subpoena Michael Flynn for documents relating to any contact he had with Russian Federation.

On Monday, former national security adviser Michael Flynn refused to honor a subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee for documents connected to the investigation into its Russian probe.

Schiff also said House investigators want to examine any audio recordings kept by President Trump during private meetings in the White House. Mark Warner, D-Virginia, and Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, said all options are on the table. Everything but immunity, he added.

Brennan said he believed he was the first US 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.

Senior Russian intelligence and political officials discussed how to influence Donald Trump through his advisers according to information gathered by American spies last summer, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

"I saw interaction aware of interaction that raised questions in my mind about what was the true nature of it. And what we're looking at now is to look at those contacts that Mr. Brennan spoke about and see what they were, how extensive they were and what they led to if anything", he said.
