Flynn refused to provide the Senate with documents on the “Russian case”
Former national security Advisor, Michael Flynn will not give evidence to the ad hoc Committee on intelligence of the Congress and to submit the documents to the Senate in the investigation of “Russian interference” in the elections of the President of the United States. It is reported Associated Press with reference to the letter from the lawyers of Flynn.
According to the newspaper, the document was sent to the Chairman of the Committee, Republican Richard Berry and his Deputy Democrat Mark Warner.
It clarifies the lawyers, former assistant to the President decided not to give evidence to the ad hoc Committee as “any statement that he made will be used against him.”
Thus, Flynn uses the Fifth amendment of the US Constitution, reports the Agency.
In addition, lawyers Flynn reported “the growth of public hysteria” surrounding the investigation of relations between Russia and team USA President Donald trump. The appointment of the former head of the FBI Robert Mueller spectaculorum for investigation of “Russian intervention” was the “threat” Flynn said in the letter.
As reported “Interfax”, previously the head of the Senate intelligence Committee Richard Burr said that Flynn refused to testify in Congress.
The scandal surrounding the former head of the defense intelligence Agency of the country of Michael Flynn began in February of 2017, when he, after his appointment as adviser to trump on national security, decided to resign. This was primarily due to the fact that Flynn did not provide the White house information about his contacts with the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak. Later on the Flynn investigation has been initiated.
