Gen. Michael Flynn Will Invoke 5th Amendment in Senate Panel Russian Witch Hunt

General Michael Flynn will invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination on Monday in Senate Intelligence Committee testimony.

US lawmakers were hoping to snag the former Trump official in a lie and have him prosecuted on his communications with Russian officials.

General Flynn is a major target of Democrats and #NeverTrump Republicans in their continued search to find links between Trump and the Putin regime.

Former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn is invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination on Monday, refusing to hand over documents subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The panel wants to see documents relating to Flynn’s interactions with Russian officials as part of its probe into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

“We will be responding to the Senate Intelligence Committee today,” a source close to Flynn tells NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly. “We expect to say the general will not providing the requested documents. He is entitled to decline under the Fifth Amendment.”
