House Subpoenas Flynn, Others in Russia Probe

The House Intelligence Committee issued subpoenas Wednesday to former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, as part of its investigation into the Trump Administration’s Russian ties and possible activity during the 2016 election.

The committee issued a total of seven subpoenas yesterday — four related to the Russia investigation and three seeking details of “unmasking” of US residents by former national security adviser Susan Rice, former CIA Director John Brennan and former US ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, a source said Wednesday.

The subpoenas call for testimony, personal documents, and business records.

“As part of our ongoing investigation into Russian active measures during the 2016 campaign, today we approved subpoenas for several individuals for testimony, personal documents and business records,” Reps. Michael Conaway, R-Texas, and Adam Schiff, D-California — the co-leaders of the House investigation — said Wednesday in a statement.

“We hope and expect that anyone called to testify or provide documents will comply with that request, so that we may gain all the information within the scope of our investigation. We will continue to pursue this investigation wherever the facts may lead,” they added.

The subpoenas are evidence of a ramped-up investigation in Congress, despite a separate FBI probe led by former FBI director Robert Mueller, who was appointed as special counsel by Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein on May 17.
