As previously reported by Circa News:
The Senate Intelligence Committee slapped Michael Flynn two new subpoenas to turn over documents about his contacts with Russian officials on Tuesday, Politico reported. The Congressional move surfaced just one day after the former national security adviser invoked the Fifth Amendment to circumvent a pervious subpoena.
This time, the Committee directed the subpoenas at his businesses, believing he can’t plead the Fifth.
“While we disagree with Gen. Flynn’s lawyer’s interpretation of taking the Fifth, it is even more clear that a business does not have a right to take the Fifth if it’s a corporation,” said top committee Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia.
Prior to his brief stint as Trump’s national security adviser, Flynn ran a consulting firm called the Flynn Intel Group.
Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, remained adamant about obtaining information from Flynn.
“If in fact there’s not a response, we’ll seek additional counsel advice on how to proceed forward,” Burr said at a joint press briefing with Warner. “At the end of that option is a contempt charge, and I’ve said that everything is on the table.”
