The lobbying firm owned by disgraced former Trump adviser Michael Flynn has turned over thousands of documents to the House Judiciary Committee that the panel requested in its sweeping probe of Trump-related entities.

Politico reported that the Flynn Intel Group, owned by Donald Trump’s indicted former adviser, sent “several thousand pages of documents” to the Democrat-controlled panel late Monday night.

The documents Flynn submitted “matched the files he also turned over to the House and Senate Intelligence Committee investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election,” Democrat and Republican sources on the panel told the website.

The report noted that the committee separately requested documents from Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn, Jr., but it remains unclear if the Flynn Intel Group’s submission will cover them.

Politico noted that GOP aides on the committee confirmed that at least eight “individuals and entities” — including the National Rifle Association, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and current Trump confidant Tom Barrack — submitted over 8,000 pages of documents.

“Brittany Kaiser, a former employee of onetime Trump campaign data firm Cambridge Analytica, confirmed through an attorney that she had shipped documents to the panel on Monday,” the report added.

Court rules the Trump administration policing panel broke the law — and must halt its work

Published

on

U.S. District Judge John Bates ruled Thursday that one of President Donald Trump's "blue ribbon panels" broke public meetings laws, reported Politico.

The law enforcement panel violated the Federal Advisory Committee Act, according to the federal court judge, by only allowing law enforcement on the commission and by holding meetings in secret.

"The commission’s final report was set to go to Attorney General William Barr later this month, but Bates said no recommendations can be submitted until the panel remedies the legal violations," Politico reported.
