US Senate panel still negotiating with Flynn over documents: congressional aides

19 May 2017, 10:35 | Terri Saunders

Burr later walked back his position, saying Flynn still had "a day or two" to comply.

Burr's office put out an official statement from the senator an hour later, confirming what he told reporters.

Former acting attorney general Sally Yates, a Barack Obama appointee held over for the start of the new administration but fired by Trump, said under oath this month that she warned the White House that Flynn had been interviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and that he could potentially be blackmailed by Russians over his misleading claims.

Burr's statement was a complete reversal from his comments earlier on Thursday, when he said that Flynn's lawyers told the committee the retired Army general "would not honor" the subpoena. "We've got a full basket of things we might want to test". Flynn reportedly had six undisclosed phone calls with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergei Kislyak.

"General Flynn's lawyers have said he will NOT honor the subpoena". "I believe that is correct", Warner said, adding that he needed to check with staff.

So it isn't yet clear whether Flynn in fact intends to not comply, nor it is clear what, if any, legal grounds he might be asserting for noncompliance.

On March 30, Flynn offered to testify before both the House and Senate Intelligence Communities in exchange for immunity.

"The criminal contempt process takes forever - you vote [for] it and then it goes to the USA attorney and he has to decide what to do with it", senior counsel Stanley Brand of the Akin Gump firm told Politico. "Probably a good example of criminal investigations stop congressional investigations".

Trump kept Flynn in the administration long after the White House had been alerted to his ethics issues.

Update 5/18/17 1:55 pm: The Associated Press has now reported a correction of an earlier story, after a Senate Committee clarified that they had not received a response from Michael Flynn's legal team. Flynn resigned as President Donald Trump's national security adviser on February 13, 2017. Flynn's attorneys had said in the past that he might not turn over requested documents.

The committee last week issued a subpoena for documents regarding his interactions with Russian Federation officials.

Amid investigations from multiple committees on Capitol Hill into his ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, the beleaguered lieutenant general and Turkey lobbyist has claimed that, in private exchanges, the president has expressed his continued support as recently as late last month.
