The House Intelligence Committee issued 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 an investigation into Russian interference in last year’s presidential election. “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.
The latest committee action shows that lawmakers have not given up their own Russia investigations 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.
In addition to approving subpoenas for Flynn and Cohen as individuals, the committee approved them for their companies, Flynn Intel Group LLC and Michael D. Cohen & Associates PC.
