Russian Federation 'brazenly interfered in our election — Ex CIA Chief

Russian Federation 'brazenly interfered in our election — Ex CIA Chief

Last week Reuters reported that Flynn and other Trump advisers called and emailed Russian officials at least 18 times during the end-stage of the 2016 election, citing current and former usa officials. When Sen. John McCain asked about the report, Coats declined to answer.

Brennan also said that the Russians had contacts with the staff of the trump in 2016, according to CNN.

The information was considered to be credible enough by intelligence officials that it was passed along to the FBI, which then opened up an ongoing counterintelligence investigation. He said this was cause for concern "because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals, and it raised questions in my mind, again, whether or not the Russians were able to gain the cooperation of those individuals".

"It should be clear to everyone that Russian Federation brazenly interfered in our 2016 present election process" and did so despite strong protests and his warning, he said.

Legal experts have said Flynn was unlikely to turn over the personal documents without immunity because he would be waiving some of his constitutional protections by doing so. The Trump administration has strongly denied any collusion with Russian Federation.

The leaders of the Senate Russia investigation said Tuesday they will continue to pursue critical documents from former national security adviser Michael Flynn, issuing two additional subpoenas to a pair of businesses Flynn ran.

Flynn was forced to resign from the Trump administration after it became public that he'd lied to Trump's team about the contents of his conversation with Russia's ambassador to the USA during the presidential transition.

United States intelligence agencies concluded in January that Russian Federation tried to tilt the November presidential election campaign in Republican Donald Trump's favour, including hacking into and leaking emails of senior Democrats.

But, the Post noted, this was viewed by both current and former top intelligence officials "as an attempt by the president to tarnish the credibility of the agency leading the Russian Federation investigation". The revelation came from notes Comey kept of the conversation.

The Post reported that Trump's conversation with Rogers was documented in an internal memo written by a senior NSA official.

He did not specifically mention the two-state solution, long the focus of worldwide peace efforts and US Middle-East diplomacy. Trump said he believes that Palestinians and Israelis can "forge peace and bring new hope to the region".


In late July of a year ago there was so much concern that he convened a group of officials from the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency to focus on it exclusively.

Flynn's lawyer also did not respond to an email seeking comment.

Coats sidestepped the question but said he has made clear to Trump's administration that "any political shaping" of intelligence would be inappropriate.

The Senate letter to Manafort had asked him about his about contacts with Russian government and business figures. Prior says the form was filled out in late November.

He said the two officials were "sufficiently concerned that it was an extraordinary thing that they took care to write it down, but not sufficiently concerned that they reported it". "Those requests were denied", he said.

Gingrich also noted that there's not a single named source for the story, much like The Washington Post report last week that claimed a senior White House official close to the president was described as a "person of interest" in the Russian Federation probe.
