Flynn to provide docs after Senate Intel subpoena

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn will turn over documents from his businesses to the Senate Intelligence Committee, after refusing to comply with an initial subpoena from the panel last week, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Flynn will begin supplying the records to the committee as soon as next week, including documents from two of his businesses and some personal documents.

The development comes a week after Flynn announced that he would not comply with the Senate Intelligence Committee’s subpoena for personal documents, as part of their investigation into Russian election meddling.

Following Flynn’s initial refusal, the top Republican and Democrat on the committee said they would subpoena records from two of Flynn’s businesses, because corporations do not have the same Fifth Amendment rights as people.

Flynn has emerged as a central figure in ongoing federal investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Flynn was forced to resign from his White House job in February amid revelations that he had misled Vice President Pence about his conversations with Russia’s ambassador in the month before Trump took office.
