The Senate Intelligence Committee issued a subpoena to force former national security adviser Michael Flynn to turn over documents related to the panel's probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, including possible ties between the Kremlin and the presidential campaigns.
In a joint statement, Senators Richard Burr, the committee's Republican chairman, and Mark Warner, its top Democrat, said the committee had first requested the documents from retired Lieutenant-General Flynn in an April 28 letter, but he had declined, through counsel, to cooperate with the request.
The announcement comes a day after the Trump administration fired James B. Comey from his post as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), citing his handling of a probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails as the reason for his termination.
Boente was only recently appointed as acting assistant attorney general for the U.S. Justice Department's national security division, which is responsible for oversight into the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.
The subpoenas issued in recent weeks by the US Attorney's Office in Alexandria, Virginia, were received by associates who worked with Flynn on contracts after he was forced out as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014, according to the people familiar with the investigation.

The longtime Trump confidante also said that Comey's firing "had nothing to do with Russian Federation".
The New York Times cited multiple congressional sources as saying that, after Burr and Warner urged the FBI director to speed up the investigation that has been open since July, Comey had requested more funding for the Russian Federation probe from the Justice Department in a direct request to Deputy Attorney General Ron Rosenstein, who was overseeing the Russian Federation investigation as Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself and who wrote the memo justifying Comey's termination.
Robert Kelner, Flynn's attorney, did not return a call for comment Wednesday. The committee has invited Comey to testify in a closed session Tuesday.
Yates also cited the possibility that Flynn could have broken federal law by operating as a paid foreign agent for the Turkish client without US government permission.

College football adds early signing period
I'm ambivalent on this move, mostly because I'm cynical about how coaches will wield this extra piece of leverage. Those players can sign financial aid papers in the winter, well before the February signing period.
