Ranking House intel Dem: Subpoenas coming after Flynn denies request

Trump's campaign committee, based at Trump Tower in NY, is now led by Michael Glassner, a former deputy campaign manager, and John Pence, a nephew of Vice President Mike Pence, the Post said.

Former CIA Director John Brennan says he thinks Russian Federation cooperates with WikiLeaks through middlemen. "It raised questions in my mind about whether Russian Federation was able to gain the cooperation of those individuals".

"I know what the Russians try to do", he told the committee. He said he was "very concerned" about the disclosure of information.

Republicans on the committee pushed Brennan about whether there was evidence of collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. The senators did not say what to what those documents relate.

Former CIA chief John Brennan testifies before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on May 23. Brennan says he told the head of the FSB that if Russian Federation continued to interfere, it would backfire and prevent any warming of relations.

He said he raised published news media reports of Russian attempts to meddle in the election with the Russian official, who denied any involvement by Moscow. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey earlier this month, prompting reports that the president tried to steer Comey away from Flynn and the Russian Federation investigation.

He left his position at the WilmerHale law firm, whose clients include former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Trump's daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner. "He should comply and there will be consequences if he doesn't", Schumer said Tuesday.

The dual testimonies and new allegations that Flynn appeared to lie to federal security clearance investigators continue to keep Russian Federation in the headlines, even as Trump tried to distance himself from the Russian Federation investigation with his first worldwide trip as president.

Dan Coats is testifying Tuesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

In recent months, several Trump campaign associates, such as Roger Stone and Carter Page, have been contacted by Senate investigators, but the campaign itself had not been asked to preserve and produce materials.

Coats did not deny the report but said he didn't want to characterize or comment any private conversations with the president.

"I said we would use whatever compulsory process we need. if the subpoenas are not adhered to in a way that is supported by their legal right then I think we need to explore whatever compulsion Congress for obtaining" those documents, Schiff said.

A CIA spokesperson declined to comment when asked if CIA Director Mike Pompeo was also asked by President Trump to push back against an FBI investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and the Russian government.President Trump asked two top United States of America intelligence officials in March to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between the Russian government and his campaign team, a former senior intelligence official confirmed to NBC News.Both Coats and Rogers are set to testify before Congress on Tuesday in previously scheduled hearings - Coats, a former Indiana GOP senator, before the Senate Armed Services Committee, and Rogers before the House Armed Services Committee.

Brennan's testimony before the House Intelligence Committee gave a much clearer view of how seriously U.S. intelligence took the Russian threat, and why the FBI began investigating it in July, well before the American public was aware of the allegations.
