WASHINGTON (AP) — Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer, has turned over documents to the House Intelligence Committee that are related to a Trump real estate project in Moscow.

That's according to a person familiar with the matter who isn't authorized to publicly discuss Cohen's closed-door appearance before the committee and is speaking on condition of anonymity.

The committee interview Cohen last week, and the chairman, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California, said afterward that lawmakers asked Cohen to bring additional documents for his second day of interviews.

The person familiar with the matter says Cohen brought documents pertaining to the Moscow project, which eventually was abandoned.

He pleaded guilty last year to lying to Congress, campaign finance violations and other charges and is set to begin a three-year prison sentence in May.
