Senate chairman: Flynn has not responded to subpoena

"Flynn's lawyers said he would not honor the subpoena, and that's not a surprise to the committee", the North Carolina senator and chair of the committee said.

"Michael Flynn has not cooperated with the committee up to this point", Burr said, adding, however, that he has not received a "definitive answer" on whether Flynn and his lawyers will comply. "There may be a day or two left". "Consistent with the Committee's position since the beginning of or investigation, I welcome their willingness to cooperate". The letter and initial stories on Flynn's lobbying were first reported by The Daily Caller. At the time, Trump said he fired Flynn because he misled senior administration officials, including the vice president, about his contacts with Russian officials.

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.

Trump's former foreign policy adviser, Carter Page, informal adviser Roger Stone and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort were also asked to provide documents.

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 USA law. Burr declined to reveal the second.

The relevant statute, 2 U.S.C. § 194, directs the President of the Senate (Vice President Mike Pence or, in his absence, president pro tempore Orrin Hatch) to certify the contempt statement of facts to the "to the appropriate United States attorney, whose duty it shall be to bring the matter before the grand jury for its action". Emails, text messages, letters, phone records and information about financial and real estate holdings associated with Russian Federation were among the information requested by the committee. He has been under investigation by the FBI for secretly working as a paid lobbyist for Turkey during the presidential campaign, a fact he disclosed to the White House weeks before Mr. Trump's inauguration, according to a Wednesday New York Times report.

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) didn't want to get ahead of the intelligence committee leaders, but said he plans to look into "tools" the Senate can use to pressure Flynn.
