Former national security adviser Michael Flynn plans to invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and rebuff a Senate panel subpoena, Fox News confirms.
Flynn’s decision comes less than two weeks after the Senate intelligence committee issued a subpoena for Flynn’s documents as part of the panel’s investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.
Sources close to Flynn emphasized that the decision is not evidence of guilt or wrongdoing.
Experts say records can be viewed as testimony and that providing them could be seen as waiving Fifth Amendment constitutional protections.
Flynn has previously sought immunity from “unfair prosecution” to cooperate with the committee.
