Former Trump campaign manager meets with Senate intel

Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump's onetime presidential campaign manager, was questioned Wednesday behind close doors by the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to a person familiar with the interview.

Flynn was a close aide to his father, former U.S. Army general Michael Flynn, 58, who was sacked by Trump three weeks into his White House job in February as he came under scrutiny for his foreign contacts.

He has denied reports that he interacted with allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that he went to the Kremlin as a private citizen. Russian Federation has repeatedly denied the conclusions of USA intelligence agencies that Moscow interfered in the presidential campaign to help Republican Trump by hacking Democratic Party emails and spreading propaganda online. The panel could issue a subpoena to the younger Flynn, although he could invoke his Fifth Amendment constitutional protection against self-incrimination and not comply. "We have worked with the other committees investigating this matter to strike the balance between Congress's right to information and our client's privileges and legal obligations", Levy said in an emailed statement, referring to an August meeting Senate Judiciary Committee investigators held with Fusion GPS's chief executive Glenn Simpson.

Flynn Sr., a main subject in the congressional and federal probes into Russian interference, was forced to resign from the Trump administration after 24 days over misleading Vice President Mike Pence about contacts Flynn had with Russian officials, the ABC News report said.

The committee, like its House counterpart, has been looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election and whether there was any collusion within the Trump camp.
