Senate intel chair backtracks on claim Flynn won't honor subpoena

Burr initially said Flynn's legal team would not honor subpoena.

But Burr's team later backtracked on the claim.

"Gen. Flynn's attorneys have not yet indicated their intentions regarding the Senate Intelligence Committee's subpoena," Burr's spokesperson said. "Consistent with the committee's position since the beginning of or investigation, I welcome their willingness to cooperate."

ABC News reached out to Flynn's legal team for comment.

After Flynn's departure, his lawyer Robert Kelner said that Flynn would testify in front of the Senate committee in exchange for "assurances against unfair prosecution."

"Gen. Flynn has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit," Kelner said.
