A day after federal prosecutors formally subpoenaed the associates of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, the Senate Intelligence Committee has officially subpoenaed Flynn himself on Wednesday, as the investigation into Russia's involvement in the election intensifies.
The subpoena was issued on Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is conducting one of three independent investigations into allegations of Russian meddling in 2016 elections, after Flynn refused to cooperate and hand over the papers requested by the panel in April.
The assessment comes amid a mushrooming crisis for the Trump team as questions swirl over why the president fired his FBI director, who was overseeing an investigation into Russian election meddling and possible connections between Trump campaign associates and Russia previous year. The White House relied on Obama-era background checks to check Flynn, and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates warned White House officials about Flynn before he was sacked.
Flynn, who was forced to resign in February, has come under the committee's scrutiny over communications he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak while a representative of then President-elect Donald Trump's transition team.
Flynn, as we're all well aware by now, is an extremely suspicious character in this entire Russian Federation mess.
Mr Flynn was sacked by the president after less than one month in the job.
Michael Flynn was subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee as part of its investigation into links between Russian Federation and Mr Trump's campaign team.
