May 30 (UPI) -- Former national security adviser Michael Flynn will hand over documents in his possession related to his dealings with Russia, his legal team said Tuesday.
Attorneys for Flynn told the Senate intelligence committee in writing that personal and professional documents sought by two revised panel subpoenas will be turned over days after the former adviser declined to comply with the panel's first request, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
Flynn's decision to furnish relevant documents related to the U.S. Senate's investigation of Russia was also reported Tuesday by The Wall Street Journal and Fox News. All three reports cited sources close to Flynn.
Flynn's attorneys said the documents will be handed over by the committee's June 6 deadline.
The former adviser's attorneys told the panel last week that Flynn would hold onto his documents, invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Flynn's concern was that the first subpoena was too broad and could have furnished records to be used against him.
The committee responded with a pair of more specific subpoenas, to which Flynn had until Tuesday to respond. Fox News reported that the revised subpoenas were designed to allow Flynn to hand over the documents without jeopardizing his legal rights.
The second order focused on two of Flynn's companies -- Flynn Intel Group Inc. and Flynn Intel Group LLC -- and the third sought personal records, the Post reported. The records might involve his communications with Russian diplomat Sergey Kislyak late last year, discussions that played a role in his dismissal as President Donald Trump's national security adviser.
The committee altered the subpoena to focus on Flynn's businesses because they cannot invoke the Fifth Amendment, ranking panel Democrat Mark Warner said.
The Senate's is one of three U.S. investigations into potential meddling by Russia in last year's presidential election.
Earlier Tuesday, Michael Cohen, Trump's private attorney, said he would also decline to provide information and testimony to the congressional investigations because their requests were too broad and "not capable of being answered."
