Federal prosecutors have issued grand jury subpoenas to associates of former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn amid the ongoing probe into alleged Russian election interference, CNN reported Tuesday.
The subpoenas, which CNN learned of just hours before President Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey, were reportedly issued in recent weeks by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Alexandria, Virginia, to associates who worked with Flynn after he was forced out as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014.
Investigators are reportedly looking into possible wrongdoing in how Flynn handled disclosures about payments from foreign governments, including Russia and Turkey. Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates told a Senate judiciary subcommittee this week that she had warned the White House that Flynn was “compromised” and could be blackmailed over his ties to Russia.
