Ex-National Security Adviser Michael Flynn won't honor Senate subpoena

19 May 2017

Burr told reporters Thursday about the response from Flynn's lawyer.

A report by the New York Times claims the Trump administration knew in January 2017 of adviser Michael Flynn's contact with Russian diplomats. Fl... Trump later deleted and retweeted that statement to correct the spelling of "counsel".
