Former CIA head to answer questions about Russian meddling

Former CIA Director John Brennan has told Congress he was so concerned about Russian contacts with people involved in Donald Trump's campaign that he convened top counterintelligence officials to focus on them.

Burr's statement came after the ranking Democrat on the committee, Sen.

"We've been very specific in the documents now that we've requested from Gen. Flynn", Burr said.

"He should comply and there will be consequences if he doesn't", Schumer said Tuesday.

Congressional investigators on Tuesday issued a fresh warning to Michael Flynn to turn over documents pertaining to the investigation of Russian interference in the USA election, escalating pressure on Donald Trump's former national security adviser to either comply or risk being held in contempt.

Sen. Mark Warner said in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash at the Peterson Fiscal Summit that he respected Flynn's decision to invoke his right against self-incrimination but said they will have news later Tuesday related his panel's next steps.

Warner said he and Burr hoped to meet with Robert Mueller, the Justice Department's special counsel in the Russian Federation investigation, to talk about what Comey can and cannot say in his testimony.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has now crafted two new subpoenas to get around that argument, targeting a limited liability corporation and a separately registered company both under the name Flynn Intel Group.

Investigators also have questions about contacts between the Russians and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The Oklahoma lawmaker tweeted: "We need facts, not speculation & anonymous sources". Trump didn't have a wall between his businesses and his campaign, and that decision could come back to haunt him as the Russian Federation investigation moves forward.

A person with direct knowledge of the matter says Flynn is citing Fifth Amendment protections.
