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.

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