Flynn to provide some documents in response to Senate subpoenas

Michael Flynn has now agreed to provide some documents to the Senate Intelligence Committee as part of its investigation into Russia’s meddling in the presidential election.

The decision by President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser comes after initially refusing last week to comply with an initial subpoena.

Flynn informed the committee in a letter Tuesday he will provide some documents related to his two businesses, along with some personal materials, according to a source close to Flynn who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Flynn is expected to begin providing documents on a rolling basis by June 6, the source said.

Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner, informed the Senate Intelligence panel last week that Flynn would not comply with its first subpoena, invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.

But the panel’s leaders, Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), responded a day later by slapping Flynn with two new subpoenas aimed at his businesses, which the senators said were not shielded by the Fifth Amendment.

A spokesman for Warner declined to comment, and a spokeswoman for Burr did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
