Flynn hasn't responded to Senate panel's subpoena, chairman says

He has been under investigation by the FBI for secretly working as a paid lobbyist for Turkey during the presidential campaign, a fact he disclosed to the White House weeks before Mr. Trump's inauguration, according to a Wednesday New York Timesreport. 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.
Burr's comments were reported by the Associated Press and others and come after reports that President Donald Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to shut down an investigation into Flynn's actions, and that Trump's team knew Flynn was under investigation before they hired him. Yet he still emerged as the newly sworn-in president's national security adviser.
Flynn has been under scrutiny from the Justice Department since at least November 30, when the department's Foreign Agent Registration Act unit sent him a letter questioning whether he needed to register as a foreign agent for lobbying work he performed for a Turkish businessman.
The committee issued the subpoena for Flynn's records on May 10 after he declined to cooperate with an April 28 request for documents.
Because Congress can not force U.S. Attorneys to do its bidding, if a U.S. Attorney refuses-as the U.S. Attorney who received the contempt certification against Holder did-it might have to fall back on its inherent contempt authority. 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".
What would happen if Flynn really were to ignore the committee's subpoena?
Trump fired him 24 days later, and only after it became public that federal prosecutors had informed the White House not long after Trump's inauguration about Flynn's involvement with Russian Federation and suggested that he could subject to blackmail.
