Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenas Michael Flynn

Sally Yates contradicted the Trump administration on warnings about Michael Flynn’s contacts with the RussiaMore

The prosecutors issued grand jury subpoenas to persons with ties to Flynn in order to obtain business records, CNN reported on Tuesday.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into allegations Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election to benefit Trump, as well as possible links to the Trump campaign.

"Senator Graham I can't comment on that because that impacts an investigation", he said.

News of the subpoenas came amid other shockwaves rocking Washington this week, namely the firing of FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday night. Obama himself told one of his closest advisers that the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which by then had been investigating Trump associates' possible ties to Russian Federation for about six months, seemed particularly focused on Flynn.

Possible severe weather on Thursday
Now that we are past that, the odds may go down some, but we don't really come out of tornado season until the end of May. Waves of low pressure will ride along the front, increasing our chances for showers and isolated thunderstorms.

The top Democrat and Republican on a House oversight committee have said that Flynn likely broke federal law by failing to get approval from the US government to accept foreign payments and not disclosing them after accepting them.

"We felt like it was critical that we get this information to the White House, in part because the vice president was unknowingly making false statements to the public and because we believed that Gen. Flynn was compromised with respect to the Russians", Yates said. Obama fired Flynn in 2014 as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency.

The Senate Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena for President Trump's former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn.

On Monday, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told senators that Flynn's misstatements about his contacts with Russia's ambassador to the USA raised concerns that Flynn could be targeted for blackmail.

'We weren't the only ones that knew all of this, that the Russians also knew about what General Flynn had done and the Russians also knew that General Flynn had misled the vice president and others, ' Yates said Monday.

In an interview with CBS' "Face the Nation" last week, the president said it "could've been China" that was responsible for hacking during the campaign.

Obama aides also described Flynn as notably dismissive of the threat Russian Federation posed to the United States when discussing policy in transition meetings with outgoing national security adviser Susan Rice and other top officials.

Flynn had been sworn in as National Security Advisor on January 22, four days prior to Yates conversation with McGahn.
