Senator says Flynn hasn't responded to subpoena

Flynn previously refused to turn over the documents to Senate Intelligence Committee prompting the subpoena in the first place. Burr then walked back his statements, indicating that he may have spoken too soon, and the committee then corrected Burr's comments to say that Flynn's lawyer has not yet responded. 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. "Consistent with the committee's position since the beginning of or investigation, I welcome their willingness to cooperate", Burr said.

But The New York Times reported Wednesday that Flynn told Trump's transition team that his Turkish connection was under federal investigation.

The Intelligence Committee is seeking to interview Flynn as part of its probe of Russian election interference.

Flynn's refusal would put him in contempt of Congress, a crime for which the former national security adviser could be jailed up to 12 months.

James Comey Literally Tried to Hide Behind a Curtain to Avoid Trump
Rosenstein fielded questions in the closed session for more than an hour, but many senators left the briefing unsatisfied. Congressional committees are eager for Comey's testimony following Trump's unsuspected firing of him last week.

On Feb. 13, Trump ordered Flynn to resign amid media reports that the national security adviser had lied to Pence about discussing US sanctions with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December 2016.

Since his ouster, Flynn has been one of the central figures in the case addressing potential collusion between the Kremlin and President Donald Trump's campaign.

On Tuesday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the No. 2 Justice Department official, named former FBI Director Robert Mueller to also investigate allegations of ties between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation. Flynn, through his lawyer, had earlier asked for immunity from "unfair prosecution" in exchange for agreeing to cooperate with the committee.

If Flynn does refuse to comply with the subpoena, the Committee has two basic choices: let it go or pursue contempt remedies against Flynn. "No matter what option they take, it's not quick".
