Flynn hit with more subpoenas, may be held in contempt of Congress

Flynn hit with more subpoenas, may be held in contempt of Congress”

After refusing to comply with a subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee last week and pleading the Fifth Amendment Monday, Flynn's business was slapped with two more subpoenas demanding documents be turned over.

"While we disagree with Gen. Flynn's lawyer's interpretation of taking the Fifth", said Ranking Member Sen.

"A business does not have a right to take the Fifth if it's a corporation", Mr. Warner said.

Rubio's comments followed an announcement by the top lawmakers on the intelligence panel that they were issuing subpoenas for two businesses associated with Flynn, who a day earlier rejected the committee's initial request for documents related to its probe of Russian election meddling. It also issued subpoenas seeking documents from two of Flynn's businesses- Flynn Intel Group Inc., a consulting firm owned by Flynn and his business partners, and Flynn Intel Group LLC, a company he used for other projects, such as his paid speeches.

Flynn, who often warmed up the crowds at Trump campaign rallies, has been central to the Russian probe because of his contacts with Russians during and after the presidential campaign.

Warner said Tuesday that the committee was keeping "all options on the table". "We need to use whatever compulsory mechanism necessary to get the information he possesses ... the Fifth Amendment right not to provide materials or documents is limited", he added.

"If in fact there's not a response we'll seek additional counsel advice on how to proceed forward". Burr left open the possibility that they could hold Flynn in contempt if he would not comply with their demands.

Schiff said he is "skeptical" that the committee would agree to grant Flynn immunity in the future in exchange for information.

"That's not our preference today", Burr told reporters.

"Anybody who gets close to this investigation loses their job or ends up in a hard position", he said, before listing Flynn, Comey, fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The committee also sent Flynn's lawyer a letter Tuesday pushing back on his reasons for not sharing documents with the committee as it pursues his testimony. "We'd like to hear his story because he publicly said he has a story to tell". One memo reportedly shows Trump pressuring Comey to shut down the bureau's investigation into Flynn's Russian Federation ties. Burr reiterated on Tuesday that he is not considering providing Flynn with an offer of immunity, and said it was not the Senate Intelligence Committee's role to make give such a guarantee "in a potential criminal investigation".
