Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenas Flynn's records on Russian Federation

Despite warnings on Flynn, Trump dismisses Russian collusion

Despite warnings on Flynn, Trump dismisses Russian collusion

Mr Warner said on Tuesday that the committee has been receiving documents as it investigates allegations that Russian Federation sought to influence the United States election, something Moscow denies.

Despite being warned that his national security adviser had been compromised, Trump didn't fire him until 18 months later, and only after the story had been leaked to the press.

Flynn, as we're all well aware by now, is an extremely suspicious character in this entire Russian Federation mess.

Stone, Page, Flynn and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort all received similar requests for information, a person familiar with the Senate investigation said.

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.

Burr is one of several prominent Republicans who have expressed strong doubts about the timing of Trump's action.

The subpoena comes a day after President Trump removed James Comey as FBI director during an ongoing investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Yates, a holdover from President Barack Obama's administration, was sacked as the acting attorney general after refusing to enforce Trump's controversial executive order on immigration and refugees in January, shortly after Trump was sworn into office.

Trump's nominee must be confirmed in the Senate, where Democrats and some Republicans have fiercely criticized Comey's firing. An she repeated her assertion, "the only person that can fire Comey was the president".

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

After Americans who cover the White House complained, the White House said on background that only official Russian and White House photographers were included.

"I hold Director Comey in the absolute highest regard", McCabe said.

"We told him that's not an option".

He emerged as a central figure into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, and was accused of relaying misleading information to vice president Mike Pence.

But senior Democrats said he had recently asked the Justice Department for more resources for his Trump-Russia investigation.
