The Latest: Trump assails naming of counsel as 'witch hunt'

The Senate committee is one of several on Capitol Hill investigating possible collusion between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.
Former acting attorney general Sally Yates, a Barack Obama appointee held over for the start of the new administration but fired by Trump, said under oath this month that she warned the White House that Flynn had been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and that he could potentially be blackmailed by Russians over his misleading claims. Emails, text messages, letters, phone records and information about financial and real estate holdings associated with Russian Federation were among the information requested by the committee.
Flynn's attorney Robert Kelner did not respond to phone messages and emails seeking comment.
Several reports have suggested that Flynn's failure to comply could lead to a charge of contempt of Congress.

Bush.
