House Intel Committee Subpoenas Trump’s Personal Lawyer And Former NSA Adviser In Russia Probe

The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday issued seven new subpoenas in its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Four of the subpoenas are related directly to Russian meddling, which is also the subject of probes from the Senate Intelligence Committee and FBI.




The other three focus on allegations of improper “unmasking” of Trump campaign officials, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The Hill added:

“Those three subpoenas went to the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency and are related to questions — primarily from Republicans — about how the names of associates of President Trump were un-redacted and distributed in classified Obama administration reports during the transition period.

The committee said in a statement that it had issued subpoenas to former national security adviser Michael Flynn and one company associated with the former intelligence official, Flynn Intel Group LLC; and longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen and his firm, Michael D. Cohen & Associates PC.”

Earlier this month, the Justice Department appointed a special counsel to oversee the federal government’s probe following Trump’s surprise firing of FBI Director James Comey.
