Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn will refuse to comply with a subpoena and invoke his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination on Monday, according to a report by the Associated Press. The subpoena seeking documents was issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee regarding an investigation into Russian meddling—and President Trump’s potential role in that interference. The AP report is based on an unnamed source with direct knowledge of the matter. Flynn previously sought immunity from “unfair prosecution” by offering to cooperate with the committee.
