FLYNN DECLINES US SENATE SUBPOENA
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.
