U.S. Senate panel still negotiating with Flynn over documents -congressional aides

Burr's statement walks back a comment hours earlier he made to reporters that Flynn would not cooperate with the intelligence committee's subpoena request.

Burr told reporters earlier on Thursday that Flynn's lawyers had said he would not honour the subpoena issued in connection with the committee's investigation into Russian Federation and the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Burr says the panel's members are not surprised and says, "We'll figure out on Gen. Flynn what the next step, if any, is". Richard Burr of North Carolina.

On Feb. 13, Trump ordered Flynn to resign amid media reports that the national security adviser had lied to Pence about discussing us sanctions with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December 2016. As the AP reported in March, an attorney for Flynn told Trump's presidential transition team- including now-White House counsel Don McGahn - that Flynn might have to register as a foreign agent. It is also unclear whether, given the subject matter, there is any reason the Senate could not determine that Mueller is the appropriate U.S. Attorney for the matter.

While Flynn "is not cooperating" so far, Burr said, he hasn't gotten a "definitive" answer from Flynn's lawyers.

The Justice Department has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller (MUHL'-ur) as a special counsel to lead a federal investigation into allegations that Donald Trump's campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 election that put him in the White House.

While Flynn was asked to resign by President Donald Trump in February after former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates warned the White House that Russian Federation had leverage over him, Flynn was also the center of several major stories that broke on Wednesday and Thursday morning.

Nina Ginsberg, a veteran Washington defense attorney with extensive experience in national security cases, said that without an ironclad immunity deal from the committee, Flynn would be exposed to questioning from investigators about any personal documents he gave up.

The Intelligence Committee set Friday as the deadline to turn over materials in connection with its investigation into alleged relations between President Donald Trump's associates and Russian officials. The subpoena came after Robert Kelner, Flynn's lawyer, told the committee Flynn would not voluntarily provide the documents they requested. "I hope you can let this go".
