Senator says Flynn hasn't responded to subpoena

WASHINGTON ― Former national security adviser Michael Flynn is so far not cooperating with the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has issued a subpoena for documents related to his interactions with Russian officials.

"Gen. Flynn's lawyers said he would not honor the subpoena, and that's not a surprise to the committee, but we'll figure out on Gen. Flynn what the next step, if any, is", Burr, a North Carolina Republican, said at the time. An earlier report said that Flynn's lawyers said that he planned to ignore a Senate panel's subpoena. 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.

Flynn's attorneys "have not yet indicated their intentions" on the subpoena, Burr said later in a statement released by his office, but he added, "I welcome their willingness to cooperate".

Flynn's lawyer did not immediately return a request for comment. In February 2017, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz urged the Department of Justice to pursue charges against Pagliano, but no such charges have come. On Jan. 26, former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told McGahn, who had transitioned into role of White House Counsel, that the DOJ possessed evidence that Flynn had not been forthcoming to Vice President Mike Pence about his communications with Russian officials.

USA stocks rose as upbeat economic data emboldened investors to return to the market on Thursday, a day after Wall Street saw its worst selloff in eight months on worries that the political turmoil could sideline Trump initiatives such as tax cuts that investors see as favoring economic growth. Even with this information, Trump named him national security adviser. In March, the committee rejected Flynn's request for immunity from prosecution.

Committee staff didn't explain the reason Burr misspoke.

How the Committee proceeds may depend both on how much cooperation it anticipates from the Department of Justice-which may depend in large part of whether the relevant official is Mueller or Rosenstein-and on its own calculation about the wisdom of forcing the issue given the newly appointed special counsel. "No matter what option they take, it's not quick".
