Senate intel chair backtracks on claim Flynn won't honor subpoena

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

"General Flynn's lawyers said he will not honor the subpoena, and that's not a surprise to the committee", Burr said. "Consistent with the Committee's position since the beginning of [our] investigation, I welcome their willingness to cooperate".

For refusing to honor a Congressional committee's subpoena, Michael Flynn could be found in contempt of Congress.

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.

Flynn was sacked from his top post in the Trump Administration after just 25 days when it was revealed he had lied about his communications with Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak and then misled Vice President Mike Pence about the conversations.
