The entities should prepare and deliver the documents that are currently in their possession by April 3, the release noted.

On February 13, Flynn announced his resignation after media reported he misled the Trump administration about the extent of his talks with Russian officials. However, Flynn conceded no wrongdoing in his resignation letter.
