After declining to comply with an initial subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee last week, former national security adviser Michael Flynn has agreed to provide documents from his businesses.
According to the Associated Press, Flynn will comply with the request as soon as next week, turning over records from two of his businesses in addition to some personal documents.
Just a week ago, Flynn refused to comply with the Senate Intelligence Committee’s subpoena for personal documents that were requested for review in their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
After Flynn declined to cooperate, the committee’s top Republican and Democrat chose to subpoena records from two of Flynn’s businesses since Fifth Amendment rights do not apply the same to corporations as they do to people.
Flynn has become a key figure in ongoing federal investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. He resigned from his White House role in February following revelations that he had misled Vice President Pence regarding his discussions with Russia’s ambassador during the Trump transition.
