Michael Flynn Reportedly Refusing to Appear as a Witness Before Senate Intel Committee

Looks like former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is playing hard to get when it comes to the Russian probe.

According to a new report by CNN, Flynn has rejected a request by the Senate Intelligence Committee to appear as a witness. This comes after Flynn decided not to comply with a subpoena from the Senate back in May. The report notes that the committee tried to get him to adhere to the request again, only to be rebuffed once more.

It has already been reported that Flynn has offered to testify in front of both the House and Senate committees in exchange for immunity. However, he has not been taken up on that offer.

While Flynn has invoked his Fifth Amendment privilege when it comes to subpoenas related to his business records, he did hand over roughly 600 pages of records to the Senate back in June.

Meanwhile, Flynn is also being looked at hard by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as Mueller is reportedly looking at whether Flynn played a role at getting Hillary Clinton’s emails from hackers and his office has asked the White House for any Flynn-related docs.
