Flynn resigned as President Donald Trump's national security adviser on February 13, 2017.
The Senate intelligence committee subpoenaed former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn for documents related to the panel's investigation into Russia's election meddling.
"The subpoena requests documents relevant to the committee's investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election", the press release said. In announcing the subpoena, the Senate Intelligence Committee said that Flynn "declined, through counsel, to cooperate with the Committee's request", reports The Washington Post.
Flynn is being investigated for his contact with Sergey Kislyak, Russia's ambassador to the US, during the transition period ahead of Trump's inauguration.
"A senior congressional official with direct knowledge said Flynn's lawyer was told it was "wildly preliminary" and that immunity was "not on the table" at the moment". In his formal resignation letter, Flynn acknowledged that in the period leading up to Trump's inauguration: "I inadvertently briefed the vice president-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador". "Everything has been voluntary up to this point, and we've interviewed a lot of people, and I want to continue to do it in a voluntary fashion", Burr said earlier on Wednesday. The subpoena issued on Wednesday night is the first the committee has announced in the course of its Russian Federation investigation, The Washington Post reported.
And Trump continued to stand by the decision not to fire Flynn immediately after then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates warned the White House that Flynn was vulnerable to Russian blackmail.
