The committee said in a statement that it "first requested these documents in an April 28, 2017 letter to Lieutenant General Flynn, but he declined, through counsel, to cooperate".

Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn's resigned as National Security Adviser on February 13.

The chairman of the House Oversight Committee said last month it didn't appear Flynn sought or received permission to give that speech.

Flynn and other former Trump advisers Paul Manafort, Carter Page and Roger Stone also are subjects of the Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry, the Senate Intelligence inquiry and a separate review by the House Intelligence Committee.

Trump has repeatedly denounced as "fake news" the accusations that members of his circle coordinated or colluded with Russian officials.

On May 8 former acting Attorney General Sally Yates testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee that she warned the White House that Flynn was vulnerable to blackmail by Russian Federation after he misled Pence.

Flynn's lawyer did not immediately respond to questions from Newsweek about whether Flynn plans to respond to the legal order and how many documents he has relating to the investigation.
