Burr: Senate Intel Panel Hasn't Received Response From Flynn on Honoring Subpoena

The Senate Intelligence Committee is still negotiating with former national security adviser Michael Flynn to obtain documents for its counterterrorism investigation into Russian Federation and the us presidential election, congressional aides said on Thursday.

The subpoena probing Flynn's ties to Russia is part of a broader investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and alleged collusion between President Trump's campaign and Moscow.

Asked about his opinion of the president now, Flynn reiterated his loyalty to Trump.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner are determining how to proceed after Flynn has not agreed to comply with their May 10 subpoena for documents about his interactions with Russian officials. 'We're continuing on with a lot of interviews and through those interviews it leads us to additional document requests and additional individuals we'd like to talk to, ' Burr told reporters in the Capitol Thursday, CNN reported.

Burr says he would welcome Flynn's willingness to cooperate. An earlier report said that Flynn's lawyers said that he planned to ignore a Senate panel's subpoena.

Donald Trump says he fired James Comey because he was 'unpopular'
Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said that Rosenstein knew before making his recommendation to Trump that the president would fire Comey. Curbelo urged the creation of a select committee to investigate possible ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

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

As national security adviser, Flynn held several phone calls with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak before Trump's inauguration and immediately after.

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

The communications had been intercepted by the USA intelligence community because they involved Russian officials, who are routinely monitored for national security concerns. Robert Kelner, Flynn's attorney, stated that the former national security adviser would not "submit to questioning in such a highly politicized, witch-hunt environment without assurances against unfair prosecution".

The committee issued the subpoena last week, seeking "a large number of documents" after Flynn's lawyer informed the panel that Flynn would not be complying with an April 28 request to hand over the same documents voluntarily. "If they go the civil route, it takes just as long". Typically, certifications against sitting executive branch officials have been made to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.
