The Senate committee responded by voting to give its leaders, Republican Chairman Richard Burr and ranking Democrat Mark Warner, the power to issue subpoenas whenever they think it necessary.

Flynn's cooperation came as President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, rejected a request for documents as part of a House committee's separate probe into Russia's election meddling and contacts with the Trump campaign.

"As part of our ongoing investigation into Russian active measures during the 2016 campaign, today we approved subpoenas for several individuals for testimony, personal documents and business records", Reps.

"While we anticipate interviews to begin shortly, we have agreed that the pace of those interviews will be dictated by the needs of the investigation and not the preferences of outside parties", he said in a statement. The person says Flynn plans to produce documents by next week.

In response, the Senate panel narrowed the scope of its request and also issued subpoenas seeking records from Mr Flynn's businesses.

The subpoena for Cohen comes as the congressional investigations into ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation advance beyond formal requests for information from Trump associates.

On Tuesday, the president re-tweeted an article citing unnamed sources defending his son-in-law, Jared Kusher, who remains at the center of the FBI's investigation into Russian Federation.

"I don't take much" from the subpoenas issued related to unmasking requests, Deitz said.

The Times reported that the peace plan was the work of Felix Sater, a business associate who has helped Trump try to find business in Russian Federation, and Cohen.
