Flynn won't honor Senate subpoena after Trump told him to 'stay strong'

Irune Rengel | 19 May, 2017, 22:39

A lawyer representing former national security adviser Michael Flynn has informed the Senate Intelligence Committee that Flynn will not comply with their subpoena for private documents relating to the growing controversy surrounding Russiagate.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) told reporters Thursday that Flynn's lawyers have yet to turn over any documents, although there "may be a day or two left" for them to do so. Mark Warner, D-Va., announced in a statement released last Wednesday that the committee had subpoenaed Flynn for documents, and noted they made the initial request for the documents in late April. "Consistent with the Committee's position since the beginning of or investigation, I welcome their willingness to cooperate".

Weeks after that, news broke that Flynn had neglected to list three Russia-linked sources of income - including $45,000 in speaking fees from the Kremlin-backed RT news network - in his legally required White House ethics forms. A lawyer for Flynn did not immediately respond to Reuters' request for comment.

The Senate committee is one of several on Capitol Hill investigating possible collusion between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign.

If Flynn declines to comply with the subpoena, the intelligence committee could have little legal recourse. Those letters sought a wide array of electronic and paper records related to any contacts people affiliated with the Trump campaign had with Russian officials and Russian businesses. US officials however told Reuters these calls did not show any evidence of wrongdoing or collusion during the 2016 campaign. Congressional Republicans did the former during the Obama administration when attorney general Eric Holder and the IRS' Lois Lerner refused to comply with issued subpoenas.

Earlier on Thursday, the committee's Republican chairman, Sen.

Asked about his opinion of the president now, Flynn reiterated his loyalty to Trump. In March, the committee rejected Flynn's request for immunity from prosecution.

Flynn is separately being investigated by the Defense Department's inspector general.
