Senate committee subpoenas Michael Flynn for Russian Federation documents, reports say

Probes by several congressional committees into Russian election meddling have been bogged down for weeks amid accusations by Democrats that Republicans have stalled progress to protect the White House.

The White House says President Donald Trump is sending a certified letter to Sen.

Yates said during the hearing Monday that she has never leaked classified information to a reporter and she has never been an anonymous source in a news report about matters relating to Trump and his campaign associates.

"I want to know more about Trump's business dealings", Graham told CNN Tuesday.

A leading Republican politician has said he would like to probe possible links between Donald Trump's businesses and Russian Federation and believed it would be "helpful" to obtain his tax returns.

Flynn, who is at the center of the controversy surrounding Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, was sacked after less than a month.

Mr Graham then asked if he had uncovered any such information at any time during his investigations.

The chairman and vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday issued a subpoena to President Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn as part of their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena on Wednesday demanding documents related to Russian Federation from President Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn, ramping up its monthslong investigation of Moscow's alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. Lindsey Graham attesting that the president has no connections to Russian Federation. "I think the vice president was probably the strongest advocate to get rid of Flynn and the President eventually made the right decision".

"He didn't turn those documents over, so we have subpoenaed those documents", Lankford said. Because somebody leaked it.

In an unusual move for a former president - particularly one who just handed the White House to the opposing party - Obama taped a video endorsing Emmanuel Macron, the eventual victor of the French presidential election.

Flynn was sacked by President Donald Trump in February, after news reports revealed that the former Army lieutenant general lied to administration officials about his conversations with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak before the inauguration.

Yates former principal deputy, Matt Axelrod, who is now in private practice, disputed Spicer's characterization of Yates as a partisan, pointing out that she was confirmed as deputy attorney general on an 84-12 bipartisan vote. Did it go across the Susan Rice desk?
