Michael Flynn will provide investigating committee with some documentation

Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn has decided to provide some documentation to the Senate intelligence committee related to his links to Russia. as well as some personal information related to his businesses.  He asked the committee to narrow their request before he complied.  The committee is investigating Russian links to Trump's campaign operatives, Flynn, Manafort, Stone, and Page, and now two more people connected toTrump are being investigated. Flynn idid two things and later failed to declare them when legally required: 1) getting payments from Russia's state-run TV station, and 2) registering as a foreign agent when he indirectly lobbied for Turkey (he took payment for a Dutch company aligned with Turkey). Both of these events occurred through his Intel company that he and his son run providing information for businesses and governments. So far, Flynn sought immunity, pleaded the 5th, refused and then bargained about releasing documents. Flynn worked in the army and government long enough to know what is right and wrong and what needs to be reported and why. It remains to be seen what the released information will be, what it will or will not show, what additional information the committee will request, what they will do with the information they get, how many more people will be investigated, and ultimately what the investigations will prove and if anyone will be punished.
