Feinstein on Flynn Decision to Invoke Fifth Amendment Rights

Washington—Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement on reports that General Michael Flynn will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights:

“I’ve seen reports that General Michael Flynn will refuse to testify before Congress or provide documents. That’s unfortunate but not unexpected.

“I believe both the Intelligence and Judiciary Committees should continue to seek other ways to gain access to this information. Already Chairman Grassley and I have sent requests to the White House, FBI and Defense Department for memos, recordings, notes and other documents. The investigation will go on.”
