Senate intelligence panel requests Trump campaign documents -WashPost

The intelligence was among the clues - which also included information about direct communication between Mr Trump's advisers and Russian officials - that U.S. officials received past year as they began investigating Russian attempts to disrupt the election and whether any of Mr Trump's associates was assisting Moscow in the effort.

Flynn has already refused to comply with the Senate Intelligence Committee's subpoena for documents outlining his contacts with Russian officials, invoking his Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination.

He says the committee will be "following up with subpoenas" to maximize the chances of getting information from Flynn.

Brennan noted anew that United States of America intelligence agencies had concluded "Russia's goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary (Hillary) Clinton and harm her electability and potential presidency, and to help President Trump's election chances".

The form asked him to list "any contact" he or his family had with a "foreign government" or its "representatives" over the past seven years.

Some Russians boasted about how well they knew Mr. Flynn.

Mr Flynn, a retired general, is a key witness in the Russian Federation investigations because of his ties to Moscow.

Schiff also said his committee is taking steps to try to obtain any recordings of conversations between President Trump and former FBI Director James Comey.

Then on Monday, reports said Trump asked Coats and Rogers to publicly deny that there was any evidence his campaign associates colluded with the Russians.

It is unclear, however, whether Russian officials actually tried to directly influence Mr Manafort and Mr Flynn.

Internet services have also been blocked to deny rumour mongers any chance of vitiating the atmosphere further. The Gandhi scion had sought permission to visit Saharanpur on Saturday.

Flynn could choose to contest the congressional subpoenas seeking his business records, but legal experts said he would not prevail.

About 24-hours ago, Jared Kushner, a senior White House adviser and son-in-law of Trump came under investigation by the FBI over his links with Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation. Others talked of using their ties to former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, a pro-Russian politician who was living in exile in Russia for whom Manafort had worked as a top campaign adviser.

And former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page said he will testify next month before the House Intelligence Committee.

The report said the request was made in December at Trump Tower in NY.

On Tuesday, former CIA Director John Brennan told lawmakers he had noticed contacts between associates of Trump's campaign and Russian Federation during the campaign and grew concerned Moscow had sought to lure Americans down "a treasonous path". There's also a Department of Justice probe, now being overseen by special counsel and former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Robert Mueller. Page has denied any involvement in Russian attempts to influence the election.
