Judge orders ex-US Rep. Aaron Schock to provide records

A federal judge has ordered former U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock to provide some records to prosecutors as part of a grand jury probe into the Illinois Republican’s spending.
    
U.S. District Judge Sue Myerscough’s ruling, issued Feb. 12, was unsealed Wednesday.
    
Among the 16 records Schock must turn over are documents related to a joint campaign fundraising committee he controlled, emails about his travel and a real estate investment and draft agreements related to his "personal business dealings."
    
Lawyers for Schock had argued the documents should remain confidential because they involve attorney/client communications or were prepared in preparation for litigation.
    
Schock, of Peoria, left office in March amid questions about congressional and campaign spending.
    
He has since been issued at least two grand jury subpoenas seeking campaign and congressional records.
