Seattle Times: Former Boeing official won’t turn over 737 MAX documents to DoJ

Former Boeing official subpoenaed in 737 MAX probe won’t turn over documents, citing Fifth Amendment protection

A former Boeing official who played a key role in the development of the 737 MAX has refused to provide documents sought by federal prosecutors investigating two fatal crashes of the jetliner, citing his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Mark Forkner, Boeing’s chief technical pilot on the MAX project, invoked the privilege in response to a grand jury subpoena issued by U.S. Justice Department prosecutors looking into the design and certification of the plane, the person said.
It isn't clear whether these are personal documents or Boeing company documents being requested. According to the article, it appears Forkner was the one who initially suggested that MCAS be left out of the pilot manual.
