Senate Intelligence Committee subpoenas Michael Flynn

Michael Flynn, President Trump's former national security adviser, has been subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee for documents linked to the investigation into Russia's attempt to meddle with the 2016 presidential election, the committee's chairman and ranking member announced Wednesday.

In a statement, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) said that the committee tried to get the documents from Flynn last month, but his lawyer rejected their request, and the committee decided to issue a subpoena. There are several ongoing investigations surrounding Russia possibly colluding with the Trump campaign, and Flynn was forced out of his position after it was revealed he discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. before the inauguration.
