Michael Flynn To Turn Over Some Subpoenaed Documents To Senate Committee

13 Juin 2017

The source, who requested anonymity to discuss sensitive matters, confirmed details first published by The Associated Press Tuesday, and said Flynn would turn over personal documents, as well as specific business records.

"As part of our ongoing investigation into Russian active measures during the 2016 campaign, today we approved subpoenas for several individuals for testimony, personal documents and business records", they said.

A separate FBI probe that was led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller and the latest actions of the committee prove lawmakers have not given up their own Russian Federation investigations.

Trump accused Democrats of blocking Page's testimony, without citing evidence but referring to an unidentified report.

Trump has been dismissive of probes by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and several congressional panels. The president later said in an interview on NBC News that he was concerned about the FBI investigation into what he called the "Russia thing".

Cohen said Tuesday that he had declined to participate in both the House and Senate intelligence committee investigations.

But a senior committee aide said he could not confirm that those subpoenas had been issued, and he added that if they had been, it was not with the agreement of the Democratic members of the panel or as part of the committee's Russian Federation probe. Devin Nunes (R-Tulare), had approved three subpoenas without their knowledge.

Producing documents that fall within the subpoena's broad scope would be a testimonial act, insofar as it would confirm or deny the existence of such documents.

After finishing second in last week's All-Star Race, Kyle Larson said he backed rotating the annual event among NASCAR tracks. Hamlin had a fast pit stop on Lap 296, getting out ahead of Truex and Johnson to take the lead for the first time.

The subpoenas seek information on requests from Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power, according to the Journal.

The White House said it would not answer any more questions about the investigations.

With more documents to be handed over, this investigation isn't close to complete. Officials only "unmask" the identities of Americans for certain reasons, for example, if the name of a person is needed to understand the intelligence being provided.

They seek all the names that were unmasked in the classified reports.

General Michael Flynn was forced out of the Trump administration for misleading Vice President Mike Pence and other officials about discussions he had with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

In a statement, Justice Department spokesman Ian Prior said Sessions met with hundreds, if not thousands, of foreign dignitaries while in the Senate. Among the payments was more than $33,000 Flynn received from RT, the Russian state-sponsored television network that USA intelligence officials have branded as a propaganda arm of the Kremlin.

Representative Elijah Cummings, the senior Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said last week that Flynn may have lied in his application for a security clearance by saying that his paid speech at a Moscow gala for a Russian TV network in 2015 had been "funded by USA companies".
