Senate panel chairman: Flynn won't honor subpoena
19 May 2017, 10:41 | Darnell Patrick
The lawyer for embattled former national security adviser Michael Flynn said Flynn won't comply with a Senate Intelligence Committee subpoena, according to the committee's top Republican.
The Associated Press reported Thursday morning that, according to a Republican member of the Senate Intelligence panel, Michael Flynn's lawyers said that Flynn will not obey a subpoena.
Burr told reporters earlier on Thursday that Flynn's lawyers had said he would not honour the subpoena issued in connection with the committee's investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 United States presidential election.
Flynn's attorneys "have not yet indicated their intentions" on the subpoena, Burr said later in a statement released by his office, but he added, "I welcome their willingness to cooperate".
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is mocking USA news reports suggesting President Donald Trump shared sensitive intelligence with him about terror threats involving laptops on airplanes. Following the election, Flynn had reportedly discussed with Kislyak the potential of establishing a back channel communication between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that would circumvent the US national security community, Reuters reports.
The subpoena probing Flynn's ties to Russia is part of a broader investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and alleged collusion between President Trump's campaign and Moscow. Robert Kelner, Flynn's attorney, stated that the former national security adviser would not "submit to questioning in such a highly politicized, witch-hunt environment without assurances against unfair prosecution".

The Senate committee reportedly is after documents in the retired lieutenant general's possession relating to Russian Federation.
In February, the day after Flynn was ousted, the president asked now-fired FBI director James Comey to drop an FBI investigation into Flynn.
The letters asked for the men to list any meetings they might have had with Russian officials between June 16, 2015 - the day Trump formally launched his presidential campaign - and Trump's inauguration on January 20, as well as records of any communications during that period.
The committee said it sent a letter requesting material from the FBI and Justice Department related to its ongoing counterintelligence investigation.
In addition to Flynn, the committee is also zeroing on former Trump camaign aide Carter Page, who has also expressed an unwillingness to cooperate. He continued that Senate leaders would have decide if he was in contempt of court if he refused to comply and that the investigation would then head to the Department of Justice.
"If I were his lawyer, I'd probably be making the argument that if I'm under criminal investigation, you can not force me to compromise myself", Graham said. "If they go the civil route, it takes just as long".
