Flynn did not disclose income from Russian companies: White House

Sean Spicer More and More Reports Show Obama Administration Spied on Trump								by Kristina Wong31 Mar 20170		31 Mar 2017		31 Mar 2017

Flynn lawyers have suggested their client will testify on Capitol Hill in exchange for immunity.

House investigators have big questions to figure out - like whether Comey will agree to come back to the committee and whether they can reschedule Yates after her own delving into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russian Federation were reported last week.

Congressional committees and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are looking into allegations by USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation meddled in the election campaign.

A letter sent in early March to the White House requesting details on Flynn's security clearance process has not been answered.

President Donald Trump tweeted early Friday that Flynn was right to ask for immunity.

Monday's meeting was the first of the full committee - Democrats and Republicans - since the top Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff, called on House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes to recuse himself from the investigation.

"Sometimes I think this is a distraction from what we should be doing", Cornyn said on CBS' "Face the Nation".

Retired Army General and ousted national security advisor, Michael Flynn. The group's website says it aims to "promote and amplify a unified Turkish American voice on issues that affect the Turkish American community and Unites States". "He should go up there and do what he needs to do to get the story out". Nunes then briefed the president about the documents before sharing the information in them with the House Intelligence Committee, a decision Nunes subsequently said he regretted.

Guests leaving the event said the Russian Federation investigation came up at least once during Nunes' talk, which focused mostly on water, a key issue in the farming region in California, the nation's leading agricultural state.


But Flynn is not the only Trump associate to have had contacts with Russian Federation during the campaign.

What Flynn could tell investigators are unknown.

This meant that to stop Flynn from talking, his reasons for needing immunity had to be looked into.

In his statement, Kelner said the political climate in which Flynn is facing "claims of treason and vicious innuendo" is factoring into his negotiations with the committees. "The discussions did not include immunity or other possible conditions for his appearance".

Schiff spent almost two hours at the White House on Friday reviewing a set of intelligence documents that, he said he was told, were the same that GOP Rep. Nunes saw on his controversial night-time trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue earlier this month.

Congress has the authority to grant someone immunity, but doing so could jeopardize the Justice Department's ability to use that testimony as the basis for any criminal case it might want to bring. Another participant, former Central Intelligence Agency director James Woolsey, said the group discussed a plan for the covert removal of a political foe of Erdogan's, a Muslim cleric based in Pennsylvania.

Flynn reported between $750,000 and $1.5 million in mortgage debt related to his personal home and a rental property. The lawyer described the talks as ongoing. But the documents nevertheless offer a portrait into the lives of several key White House aides, especially those who came from Wall Street or have other ties to the financial industry. As of Wednesday, the Senate panel had asked to interview 20 people.

Flynn was forced to resign his post just weeks into the Trump administration after admitting he misrepresented his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak to Vice President Mike Pence. Kelner said Flynn did not have the opportunity before stepping down to consult with the White House counsel's office and the U.S. Office of Government Ethics; part of the process for submitting the forms. Trump tweeted after firing Flynn in February.
