Flynn and Trump lawyer subpoenaed over Russian Federation investigation

Flynn, Trump's top campaign adviser and former national security director, has already refused a subpoena from the Senate Intelligence Committee claiming his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, and would likely do so again with this round.

United States House Intelligence Committee has issued subpoenas to former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, as part of its probe into the Russian role during the previous year Presidential election.

In a statement, the House committee said it had issued subpoenas seeking "testimony, personal documents and business records" from Flynn and Cohen. "We will continue to pursue this investigation wherever the facts may lead", their statement said.

But tonight, the House erupted over a total of seven subpoenas (including the above and three for "unmasking"), which were signed by GOP House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes.

The Associated Press reported earlier this month that Comey planned to testify before the Senate committee after Memorial Day, but the approval from Mueller to do so could indicate that date is fast approaching.

The House Intelligence Committee handed out seven subpoenas on Wednesday including for Michael Flynn and Trump's personal attorney, a sign it's ramping up its Russian Federation investigation.

Cohen was also mentioned as someone with Russian contacts in the still-unverified dossier on Trump campaign ties to Russia compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.

In May, the committee took testimony from former Central Intelligence Agency director Brennan, who said that he had become concerned during the election campaign by the contacts between Trump associates and the Russians and shared the information with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Three other subpoenas tied to the Russian Federation investigation were issued by the House panel for information related to so-called "unmasking" of some Trump associates' names appearing on classified reports during the Obama administration, said officials with knowledge of the subpoenas.

Committee Republicans have been demanding answers on how the names of President Trump's campaign officials were exposed in classified reports that resulted from interceptions of various communications.

The former officials named in the subpoenas were Obama national security adviser Susan Rice, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power and former CIA Director John Brennan. This action would have been taken without the Minority's agreement. The House Intelligence Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee are the dominant committees leading the congressional probes.

Normally names would be redacted unless there was good reason to reveal them.
