Flynn evokes the 5th Amendment

Michael Flynn to plead 5th Amendment - Business Insider
Flynn is refusing to testify, only guilty people refuse to testify.

"Former national security adviser Michael Flynn will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights and decline a subpoena issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee for documents related to his interactions with Russian officials from June 2015 to January 2017, the Associated Press reported Monday.
The documents were subpoenaed after Flynn's lawyer, Robert Kelner, declined to provide them by the original April 28 deadline."

"Bussert told the Washington Post that while Flynn and his lawyers "may have valid Fifth Amendment claims — they couldn’t be compelled to speak to agents or what have you — they can’t refuse to comply with the subpoena for documents. You have to produce those — even though those may be incriminating.”

"It is Mike Flynn's right to plead the 5th," Republican Sen. James Lankford, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, tweeted on Monday. "We will get to the truth one way or another. We need facts, not speculation & anonymous sources."
