FILE - In this Feb. 11, 2014 file photo, then-Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. As a young man, Flynn used to go door to door luring Democrats out of their homes, onto buses and into polling stations when his mother, Helen Flynn, was running for secretary of state in his native Rhode Island. Described in a 1982 Christian Science Monitor report as an “antiabortionist mother of nine,” Helen Flynn instilled in her son an interest in civic duty but also, a more conservative brand of Democratic politics that the now-retired three-star general says no longer exists.

Burr said the members of his committee are not surprised. "We'll figure out on Gen. Flynn what the next step, if any, is," Burr said.
