U.S. Senate intel panel subpoenas Michael Flynn documents

Trump tweeted about how the subcommittee should ask Yates who he fired, about "classified information" published by news outlets "soon after she explained it to WH council".

Vice President Pence had initially said that Flynn and the ambassador did not discuss USA sanctions against Russian Federation, which turned out not to be true.

In addition to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, four congressional panels continue to investigate Russia and Russian election interference, the Senate and House intelligence committees, the Senate Judiciary subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, which held the hearings Monday, and the House oversight committee.

Trump repeatedly has said he has no ties to Russia and isn't aware of any involvement by his aides in any Russian interference in the election.

Her testimony adds to Flynn's potential legal problems, outlining concerns at the highest level of the Justice Department that Flynn's conversations with the Russian diplomat during the transition may have violated the law. Second, she thought Pence should know that the information he was given wasn't accurate. She said she was not.

Former United States Attorney General Sally Yates testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday afternoon, blowing the Michael Flynn-Russia scandal wide open.

He continued to praise Flynn, and waited 18 days after Yates' warning before asking for Flynn's resignation after it emerged he had had extensive contacts with the Russian ambassador to Washington, Sergey Kislyak, and had not given a full account of them to other White House officials.

She said there were four topics on the agenda.

Yates said McGahn asked her, "Why does it matter to the DOJ if one White House official lies to another official?"

She was sacked four days later by the Trump administration. Yates should have been out of the DOJ the minute Trump took his hand off the Bible when he was sworn in along with all the other Obama swampers.

Yates herself, a longtime federal prosecutor, was sacked by Trump on January 30 after refusing to defend his travel ban.

"[Yates] had come here giving a heads-up, told us there were materials, and at the same time we did what we should do", Spicer said. But that doesn't seem to have spurred the White House to act. What was of most interest to the senators was information regarding Trump's former national security advisor Gen. Chris Coons that in the meetings, McGahn "demonstrated that he understood that this was serious".

Yates did not say what Flynn had discussed with ambassador Sergey Kislyak in a number of December 2016 phone calls, which were secretly monitored by USA intelligence.

But why even hire Flynn in the first place?
