GOP Senator: Michael Flynn Won't Honor Subpoena

Correcting his earlier statement, the chairman of the Senate intelligence committee said Thursday that ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn hasn't responded to a subpoena from the panel in its probe of Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., told reporters on Capitol Hill that the committee, which is investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election, is evaluating its next steps.

The decision comes as no surprise, legal experts say, given that Flynn would be waiving his constitutional protection against self-incrimination by turning over personal documents to the committee.

Intel spat adds to Israeli concerns about Trump visit
A senior partner, leader of the Jewish Home party, Naftali Bennett, has been vocal against a Palestinian state. The issue comes as Trump is expected to visit Israel in less than a week, The Jerusalem Post reports.


Flynn, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general, was sacked from his position as Trump's national security adviser in February.

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.

Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week, prompting some to call for an independent prosecutor to lead the investigation.

That could make it even more hard for him to decide to leave Indy as no other team can come close to matching that contract. However, he's got 207 million reasons to consider sticking with IN for the next five seasons, as unlikely as that appears.


Flynn resigned on February 13 at the request of President Trump after it was revealed Flynn had discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador and misled the Vice President and other administration officials about the nature of his conversations with Kislyak.

Flynn previously refused to turn over the documents to Senate Intelligence Committee prompting the subpoena in the first place.

Meanwhile, Speaker of House Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, worked hard at a news conference Thursday to demonstrate that the Russia-gate hubbub was not preventing Congress from pushing forward on other fronts.
