The chairman and vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday  issued a subpoena to President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Michael Flynn as part of their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

In a statement, Sens. Richard Burr (R-NC) and Mark Warner (D-VA) said the committee issued a subpoena for “documents relevant to the Committee’s investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election.”

They said the panel first requested those materials from Flynn in April, but that he “declined, through counsel, to cooperate with the Committee’s request.”

CNN reported on Tuesday that U.S. Attorney Dana Boente’s office issued subpoenas to Flynn’s associates seeking business records from the period after his 2014 ouster as director of the Defense Intelligence Agency.
