Senate Intel Committee Subpoenas Michael Flynn in Russia Probe Featured

15 May 2017

In the wake of James Comey's dismissal as FBI Director, Michael Flynn has been issued a rare formal demand for documents by the Senate panel investigating Russian interference.

After President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Senators Richard Burr and Mark Warner, the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, both said they were troubled by his decision.

Embattled White House national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned Monday February 13, 2017 night, an abrupt end to a brief tenure.

On 8 May the former acting U.S. attorney general said she warned President Trump's administration in January that Michael Flynn "could be blackmailed" by Russian officials.

Manchester United focused on Europa vision
Liverpool were given 10,236 tickets for last season's Europa League against Sevilla at Basle's 35,000-capacity St Jakob-Park. I can't stop thinking about what could have been... but that's life that's football, you win some you lose some.

Flynn's Russian Federation ties are also being scrutinized by the FBI as it conducts a similar investigation.

A spokesman for Flynn did not immediately return a request for comment when asked about the subpoenas.

In a simultaneous development, it appears that Federal Bureau of Investigation director, James Comey, days before Trump fired him, had sought more resources for his probe into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

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

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech can not hide his disappointment following the 2-0 North London derby loss against Tottenham Hotspur. In a weekend where both Manchester teams dropped points, this defeat will sting just that bit more for Arsene Wenger and his men.

The White House has defended Flynn against any allegations of wrongdoing, saying only that his resignation was appropriate due to his conduct with Pence. McCabe was testifying in place of former FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by President Donald Trump 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. "And then so our legal department went into a review of the situation.The legal department came back and said they didn't see anything wrong with what was actually said".

On Wednesday, Democratic senators Dianne Feinstein and Richard Durbin told USA media that Mr Comey had asked the deputy attorney general for more resources - mainly staff - for the FBI investigation.

Burr has said he was troubled by the Comey firing but would continue to press ahead with his investigation wherever it leads. Many Democrats and a few Republicans found the timing of the firing suspect, since it comes as the FBI is investigating Trump's campaign and transition team for alleged collusion with Russian Federation.
