WASHINGTON — The House Intelligence Committee approved subpoenas Wednesday for testimony, documents and business records from former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, as part of the panel’s investigation into Russian interference in last year’s presidential election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
“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,” said a joint statement from Reps. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, and Adam Schiff, D-Calif., who are leading the House committee’s inquiry. “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.”
The subpoenas are evidence of a ramped-up and expanding investigation in Congress. The House Intelligence Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee are the dominant committees leading the congressional probes.
