Flynn not complying with Senate Intel Committee's subpoena


The Senate Intelligence Committee is still negotiating with former national security adviser Michael Flynn to obtain documents for its counterterrorism investigation into Russian Federation and the USA presidential election, congressional aides said on Thursday. Hours earlier, Burr said Flynn's lawyer said he wouldn't comply, "and that is not a surprise to the committee". "Consistent with the Committee's position since the beginning of [our] investigation, I welcome their willingness to cooperate".

If Flynn does refuse to comply with the subpoena, the Committee has two basic choices: let it go or pursue contempt remedies against Flynn. On Jan. 26, former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told McGahn, who had transitioned into role of White House Counsel, that the DOJ possessed evidence that Flynn had not been forthcoming to Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with Russian officials.

But following his departure, a lawyer for Flynn said that the retired lieutenant general would testify in front of the Senate committee in exchange for "assurances against unfair prosecution".

The committee said it sent a letter requesting material from the FBI and Justice Department related to its ongoing counterintelligence investigation. Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has blamed the cleric, Fethullah Gulen, who lives in Pennsylvania, for a failed coup attempt last summer and has pressured the U.S.to extradite him. Flynn resigned as President Donald Trump's national security adviser on February 13, 2017.

In April, the committee sent a series of requests to several former President Trump associates asking for records on any dealings with Russian Federation - a request Flynn's lawyers declined to cooperate with through counsel, sparking the subpoena.

After a series of immediate reports, Burr told the Huffington Post he may have spoken too soon and had yet to get a "definitive answer" to the subpoena. "We'll figure out on General Flynn what the next step, if any, is".

Republicans hold 52 seats in the chamber to Democrats' 48. "The timing and the reasons for this decision make little sense to me". Trump told NBC News that during their January dinner, he asked Comey if he was under investigation and Comey said he wasn't.

Flynn is faced with mounting legal bills, and held a meeting with friends to try to spur more work for his lobbying firm. Things are then passed over to the US attorney for the District of Columbia, who would be the one to pursue a case. Yet he still emerged as the newly sworn-in president's national security adviser. As the AP reported in March, an attorney for Flynn told Trump's presidential transition team- including now-White House counsel Don McGahn - that Flynn might have to register as a foreign agent. That inquiry is looking into whether Flynn was fully forthcoming about his foreign contacts and earnings from organizations linked to the governments of Russian Federation and Turkey.

On Thursday morning, the chair of the committee, Sen.
