1 Attachment(s) Leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Tuesday they'll concern two new subpoenas to enterprise entities managed by Mike Flynn, in a escalation of the authorized showdown with President Donald Trump's former national-security adviser over his cooperation together with the panel's investigation into so-called Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, committee chairman Richard Burr (R., N.C.) and vice chairman Mark Warner (D., Va.) stated they prepared to subpoena two Virginia-based company entities in the wake of Flynn's refusal to co-operate with the committee's prior requests for files.

One day early in the day, Flynn invoked his Fifth Amendment right to avoid self incrimination, creating in a letter to the committee that stated he was declining to hand over documents which were subpoenaed by the panel included in the the probe. The new subpoenas issued to business entities managed by Flynn are an attempt by the panel to obtain his cooperation in the wake of his refusal.
