Michael Flynn Stalls Senate Intelligence Committee

Michael Flynn Stalls Senate Intelligence Committee

The Senate Intelligence Committee is still negotiating with President Donald Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, to obtain documents for its investigation into Russian Federation and the USA presidential election, congressional aides said on Thursday.

NEW- Senate Intelligence Committee: "General Flynn's lawyers have said he will NOT honor the subpoena".

Earlier that day, Burr had announced that Flynn's lawyers "said that he would not honor the subpoena, and that's not a surprise to the committee".

The committee issued the subpoena for Flynn's records on May 10 after he declined to cooperate with an April 28 request for documents.

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".

ABC News reached out to Flynn's legal team for comment. Burr told reporters Thursday that Flynn's lawyer informed the panel he will not abide by a subpoena for private documents.

Though Flynn has left the Trump administration, the controversy surrounding him has not subsided as newly announced special counsel Robert Mueller, Congress and the FBI investigate potential collusion between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government.

The district court route would entail the Senate passing a resolution authorizing civil action that could lead to Flynn being charged with contempt of court.

Reuters reported that Flynn and other Trump campaign staffers were in contact with Russian officials at least 18 times during the last several months of the presidential campaign.

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. In February 2017, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz urged the Department of Justice to pursue charges against Pagliano, but no such charges have come.

The top Democrat and Republican on a House oversight committee have said Flynn likely broke federal law by failing to get approval from the USA government to accept foreign payments, including $33,000 in 2015 from RT, Russia's state-sponsored television network.

The committee said it sent a letter requesting material from the FBI and Justice Department related to its ongoing counterintelligence investigation.

Flynn's lawyers have claimed that he briefed the Defense Intelligence Agency "extensively" both before and after the 2015 trip.

On Feb. 13, Trump ordered Flynn to resign amid media reports that the national security adviser had lied to Pence about discussing USA sanctions with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December 2016.
