Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn has not responded to the subpoena requests by the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to the panel’s chairman Sen. Richard Burr correcting his earlier statement that retired general will not honor them, The Daily Caller reports.
In a statement, Burr said “General Flynn’s attorneys have not yet indicated their intentions regarding the Senate Intelligence Committee’s subpoena.”
The Republican North Carolina senator’s latest statement comes just hours after he told reporters that Flynn would not cooperate with the subpoena request of the committee.
The intelligence committee, which is investigating Russian interference in last year’s presidential elections that is separate from the Justice Department’s own probe, issued the subpoena on May 10.
Burr said that the committee has completed more than 30 interviews with and is expected to have more as the investigation continues.
Flynn’s subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee is just one of the several congressional investigations he is facing on top of an ongoing FBI probe and a grand jury inquiry.
