Flynn May Not Cooperate With Senate Subpoena

19 Mai, 2017, 22:39 | Author: Claudine Rigal

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 us presidential election, congressional aides said on Thursday.

Republican Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina told reporters that Flynn's lawyer has informed the panel he will not abide by a subpoena for private documents. The subpoena came after Robert Kelner, Flynn's lawyer, told the committee Flynn would not voluntarily provide the documents they requested. "Consistent with the committee's position since the beginning of or investigation, I welcome their willingness to cooperate", Burr said.

Finally, the New York Times reported that Trump's administration was aware that Flynn was under investigation for working for Turkey's government, which he did not disclose at the time, and hired him as a national security adviser anyway. Reuters could not immediately verify the report.

Trump's former national security adviser will not honor a subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to that panel's top senator. Things are then passed over to the USA attorney for the District of Columbia, who would be the one to pursue a case.

"Michael Flynn has not cooperated with the committee up to this point", Burr said, adding, however, that he has not received a "definitive answer" on whether Flynn and his lawyers will comply. "We'll figure out on General Flynn what the next step, if any, is". Those letters sought a wide array of electronic and paper records related to any contacts made between people affiliated with the Trump campaign and Russian officials and businesses.

Flynn, the former national security adviser, was sacked in February for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about the contents of a December phone call with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) didn't want to get ahead of the intelligence committee leaders, but said he plans to look into "tools" the Senate can use to pressure Flynn.

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

In February, the day after Flynn was ousted, the president asked now-fired FBI director James Comey to drop an FBI investigation into Flynn.
