Senate US companies sacked security adviser Flynn sue
The investigative committee of the U.s. Senate wants two companies of ex-national security advisor Michael Flynn sue.
Before, it was Flynn himself summoned with the request for relevant documents to carry around the research of Russian meddling in the American elections. Flynn refused and appealed to the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution, which prescribes that no one is against themselves having to testify.
“We do not agree with the interpretation of Flynns lawyers about the Fifth Amendment. But a company can’t appeal to do,” said Mark Warner, the Democratic vice chairman of the commission of inquiry.
Flynn was not yet a month into service as national security adviser to the White House. In February, he had to resign because he had concealed that he was with the Russian ambassador had talked about a relief of the sanctions against Russia, when he was still not in function.
He is one of the most important witnesses in the investigation into cooperation between the Kremlin and Trumps campaign team.
