Flynn not cooperating in Russian probe: GOP Senator

19 May 2017, 08:02 | Darin Griffith

The Senate Intelligence Committee is still negotiating with former national security adviser Michael Flynn to obtain documents for its counterterrorism investigation into Russian Federation and the USA presidential election, congressional aides said on Thursday.

Burr told reporters earlier on Thursday that Flynn's lawyers had said he would not honour the subpoena issued in connection with the committee's investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Flynn's attorney Robert Kelner did not immediately respond to phone messages and emails seeking comment. Flynn, through his lawyer, had earlier asked for immunity from "unfair prosecution" in exchange for agreeing to cooperate with the committee.

The Senate Intelligence Committee's counterterrorism probe took on added significance after President Donald Trump dismissed FBI Director James Comey last week amid allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 us presidential election.

Flynn signed a $600,000 contract last August with a Turkish businessman, Ekim Alptekin. The U.S. has rebuffed those calls.

On May 18, sources familiar with the FBI investigation into Russia's role in the election disclosed that Flynn had six previously undisclosed instances of communication with Russian officials between April through November 2016. Flynn has denied the op-ed was related to his Turkish work. The House did this anticipating the Justice Department's refusal to prosecute Holder in 2012, only to have a federal judge turn them down as well. The official was not authorized to discuss the probe and requested anonymity. Alptekin told the AP in an email that he is not a target of the investigation and has not been contacted by authorities.

Michael Wittner, global head of oil research at Societe Generale, said the market was well on its way toward bracing for an Opec cut.

Despite the disclosure, Trump appointed Flynn as his national security adviser. In 2008, the House voted to hold White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten and former White House counsel Harriet Miers in contempt over their refusal to cooperate with an investigation into the mass firings of USA attorneys by the administration of George W. Bush.

A report by the New York Times claims the Trump administration knew in January 2017 of adviser Michael Flynn's contact with Russian diplomats. Fl...

Flynn is separately being investigated by the Defense Department's inspector general.

McClatchy reported that Flynn blocked a plan conceived by former President Barack Obama's administration against the so-called Islamic State that Turkey's government opposed.

The top Democrat and Republican on a House oversight committee have said Flynn likely broke federal law by failing to get approval from the USA government to accept foreign payments, including $33,000 in 2015 from RT, Russia's state-sponsored television network. If the certification were issued to the U.S. Attorney for D.C. or EDVA (or any other district, for that matter), the relevant offices would report to Rosenstein, and not Attorney General Sessions who is [recused], in deciding whether or not to refuse to bring the matter to the grand jury.
