Metro USA (New York) - - News - REUTERS

For­mer White House na­tional se­cu­rity ad­viser Michael Flynn de­clined to com­ply with a sub­poena from the Se­nate In­tel­li­gence Com­mit­tee as it in­ves­ti­gates pos­si­ble Rus­sian in­ter­fer­ence in the 2016 U.S. elec­tion. He in­voked his Fifth Amend­ment pro­tec­tion against self-in­crim­i­na­tion. The re­tired lieu­tenant gen­eral, a key wit­ness in the Rus­sia probe, sent a let­ter to the com­mit­tee in­form­ing mem­bers of his de­ci­sion. The Se­nate In­tel­li­gence Com­mit­tee is con­duct­ing one of the main con­gres­sional probes into U.S. in­tel­li­gence agency al­le­ga­tions of Rus­sian med­dling in the U.S. pres­i­den­tial elec­tion and whether there was any col­lu­sion be­tween Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s cam­paign and Rus­sia.
