As the Russia investigation continues (tell all liberals who think it stopped because Comey was fired) former national security advisor Michael Flynn has decided not to cooperate with the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation.
The investigation is focusing on Russia’s possible interference with the US presidential election of 2016.
According to Chairman Richard Burr, who initially stated Flynn was not complying with a subpoena issued by the committee, Flynn ‘is not cooperating’ so far.
The chairman said he has yet to receive a ‘definitive’ answer from the former national security advisor’s lawyers.
“I may have been premature,” Burr said. “There may be a day or two left.”
The demand is for documents related to the committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election.Flynn — the former intelligence officer who was fired in February for misleading Vice President Pence and other White House officials about the contents of a December phone call with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak — has been under scrutiny for accepting payments from Russia and Turkey and allegedly misleading the government about them.
In April, the committee sent a series of requests to several former Trump associates asking for records on any dealings with Russians — a request Flynn’s lawyers declined to cooperate with through counsel, sparking the subpoena.
The letters asked for the men to list any meetings they might have had with Russian officials between June 16, 2015 — the day Trump formally launched his campaign — and Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20, as well as records of any communications during the period.
The senators also want details on any financial assets or real estate holding tied to Russia, and a broader list of meetings between any Trump campaign aides and Russians.
It will be a while before this committee gets to the bottom of this Russian probe.
Should Flynn be cooperating with the committee or are they trying to pin something on him that he did not do?
