Flynn not cooperating in Russian probe: GOP Senator

Attorneys for former United States national security adviser Michael Flynn have said he will not honor a subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee requesting documents related to his communications with Russian officials, Committee Chair Richard Burr, a Republican, told the Associated Press on Thursday.

The Senate Intelligence Committee said today that Michael Flynn is refusing to comply with their subpoena, according to the Associated Press.

Burr told reporters Thursday that Flynn's lawyer said Flynn would not comply with the subpoena, which the panel later corrected.

Flynn, through counsel, denied an initial request by the Senate to review any such documents in an April 28 letter, Reuters reported. "Consistent with the Committee's position since the beginning of or investigation, I welcome their willingness to cooperate".

ABC News reached out to Flynn's legal team for comment.

The Justice Department has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller (MUHL'-ur) as a special counsel to lead a federal investigation into allegations that Donald Trump's campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 election that put him in the White House.

Of the current City players, only Joe Hart and captain Vincent Kompany have been there longer. "We have not heard anything", he said.

The Justice Department declined to prosecute former Attorney General Eric Holder in 2012 when he skirted a congressional subpoena over a case where the ATF purposely allowed licensed firearms dealers to sell guns to illegal buyers hoping to track the weapons to Mexican drug cartels.

The Senate committee reportedly is after documents in the retired lieutenant general's possession relating to Russian Federation. Flynn resigned as President Donald Trump's national security adviser on February 13, 2017.

A bit flustered by the confusion surrounding whether Flynn's lawyers had responded to the committee yet, Sen.

The letters asked for the men to list any meetings they might have had with Russian officials between June 16, 2015 - the day Trump formally launched his presidential campaign - and Trump's inauguration on January 20, as well as records of any communications during that period.

On March 30, Flynn offered to testify before both the House and Senate Intelligence Communities in exchange for immunity. The Intelligence Committee would have to vote whether to issue a citation for contempt, and if so, the full Senate would then vote on it. "If they go the civil route, it takes just as long".
