The Senate Intel Committee says it has not received response from former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's lawyer, correcting an earlier statement made by its chairman, Sen.
Last month, the top Democratic and Republican members of the House Oversight Committee announced that Trump's failure to disclose the payments he received from foreign governments likely constituted a violation of US law. "Consistent with the Committee's position since the beginning of [our] investigation, I welcome their willingness to cooperate". Richard Burr of North Carolina.
Senators slapped Flynn with a subpoena last week in their investigation into ties between President Donald Trump's campaign associates and Russian interference.
Flynn was sacked from his position as Trump's national security adviser in February. As the AP reported in March, an attorney for Flynn told Trump's presidential transition team- including now-White House counsel Don McGahn - that Flynn might have to register as a foreign agent.
Despite the disclosure, Trump appointed Flynn as his national security adviser.
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.

The committee last week issued a subpoena for documents regarding his interactions with Russian Federation officials.
Flynn's lawyer did not immediately return a request for comment. But he told reporters Thursday in Cyprus that he doesn't understand what the "secret" was, since the USA introduced a ban on laptops on airlines from some Middle Eastern countries two months ago.
The committee said it sent a letter requesting material from the FBI and Justice Department related to its ongoing counterintelligence investigation.
Trump continued to keep Flynn on the job after Sally Yates, the acting attorney general, warned the White House that he could be subject to blackmail by the Russians for hiding his contacts with the ambassador.
On April 1, the Senate panel turned down the offer, according to NBC News. The subpoena came after Robert Kelner, Flynn's lawyer, told the committee Flynn would not voluntarily provide the documents they requested. Instead the Senate could exercise one of two options: It could vote on a contempt referral to be passed on to the Justice Department for enforcement. That process could take years due to procedure, Politico reports. They can. also seek a civil judgement from a federal court declaring that Flynn is legally required to comply with the subpoena.
