If firing the head of the FBI, Donald trump and expected “slow down” the investigation of a possible Russian intervention in the American elections, he is unlikely to succeed. The case, on the contrary, is gaining momentum. The Senate intelligence Committee sent a summons to the ex-Advisor to the President for homeland security, Michael Flynn. Senators require him to provide documents and other materials necessary to conduct the investigation. Again hand in Flynn, the Committee members confirmed the experts ‘ forecasts: the resignation of the Advisor, do not hold on position and month, was the miscalculation that it will still be “halloo to one another” Trump.
Agenda similar to the one that got Flynn, was sent and other former advisers trump: Roger stone and Carter page. They are, in the American intelligence services also had direct contacts with Russia.
As for Flynn, he had previously expressed willingness to speak to members of the intelligence Committee in the Senate, but only in exchange for guarantees of protection from prosecution. Neither senators nor members of the house of representatives (the lower house of Congress, which also has its own intelligence Committee) did not agree.
Later, former adviser to trump revealed information about the origin of $1.3 million from its own revenue. It became known, in particular, that the considerable sum he had received from several Russian companies, including Russia Today TV channel, which in the US is typically called, “propaganda tool” of the Kremlin.
Sending Flynn to the agenda displays the approximate trump confrontation with the senators to a new level. Failure to comply with the requirements of the members of the intelligence Committee can be regarded as contempt of Congress (with which the new US President have not established relationships, while preferring to “promote” their decisions, presidential decrees). And this, in turn, can cause the guilty to a fine and even imprisonment.
The situation for retired trunovskogo Advisor is complicated by the fact that he previously in fact already admitted that he has something to tell us about “Russian intervention”. About it openly stated and Flynn’s lawyer Robert Kellner, demanded for his client immunity from prosecution.
Recall that Michael Flynn, the scandal has left the post of adviser to trump in February this year, having held the post less than a month. The guilt he was charged that he failed to notify properly the members of Congress and Vice-President Mike Pence about his contacts with the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak.
According to experts, the fact that trump made a resignation Flynn, was a serious miscalculation of the President. The new occupant of the White house and the American and Russian analysts often compared to Richard Nixon, also in 1973 actually “surrendered” his colleague – Vice President Spiro Agnew. This, as you know, in the end did not help the President to keep their own positions, and in 1974 he resigned from the post.
Current events around the figure of Flynn, may not trump the promise of a new “Watergate.” But, at least, prove the validity of the prediction that’s impossible at the time former adviser to the President, the congressmen will not stop and continue to beat to the gap.
