Flynn Taking the Fifth

Byron Tau reports for the WSJ:

Former national security adviser Mike Flynn will decline to cooperate with a Senate subpoena, invoking his constitutional right against self incrimination and setting off a legal showdown with Congress over a key witness in its investigation of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

According to a person close to him, Mr. Flynn planed to tell the Senate Intelligence Committee later on Monday that he won't comply with the panel's request for documents, citing the Fifth Amendment's protections against self incrimination. Mr. Flynn is expected to inform the committee of his decision in a letter, through a representative.
