Senate Intelligence Committee delivers requests for evidence to Trump advisors

After weeks of delay, the Senate Intelligence Committee has asked a number of high-profile Trump campaign associates to hand over emails and other records of dealings with Russians as part of its investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election and Trump associates’ collusion with Russia.

Some of those who received the requests were Roger Stone Jr., an informal adviser to President Trump; Carter Page, former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign; Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, and Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser.

Here is a redacted copy of the letter: Letter-From-Senate-Intel-Committee-for-Russia

Those who received the letters were given until May 9 to respond. The Senate Intelligence Committee has the power to subpoena those who refuse to cooperate.

Carter Page, who federal investigators believe was being cultivated as a Russian asset by a Russian spy, is the only one of the group of known recipients of this request who seems reluctant to fully cooperate with the request at this point.
