Per chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee looking into possible Trump/Russia collusion, National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has said he will not honor its subpoena for private documents.
Richard Burr, the chairman of the panel, said he was informed by Flynn’s attorney that Flynn would not comply.
“Gen. Flynn’s lawyers said he would not honor the subpoena, said Burr. “[T]hat’s not a surprise to the committee, but we’ll figure out on Gen. Flynn what the next step, if any, is.”
“We’re continuing on with a lot of interviews and through those interviews it leads us to additional document requests and additional individuals we’d like to talk to,” Burr said.
The committee, Burr said, has completed over 30 interviews with officials involved with the campaign, and the number of individuals continues to grow as the investigation continues.
Keep in mind both that this is not a direct source, and that it does not mean Flynn would not comply with requests from the recently appointed special counsel, Robert Mueller.
According to The Hill, President Trump sent Flynn a message to the effect of, “Stay strong.” Meanwhile, the New York Times is reporting that the Trump transition team knew Flynn was under investigation for secretly working as a paid lobbyist for Turkey during the campaign BEFORE appointing him as National Security Adviser.
