Michael Flynn To Turn Over Some Subpoenaed Documents To Senate Committee

The House Intelligence Committee's investigation is one of several congressional probes into Russian Federation, along with one by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Ed Markey, a Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told CNN: "Nunes is too close to the Trump White House". He said at the time that he had concerns about the way some people were dealt with in the intelligence reports. "The subpoenas were approved for: Lt".

The House and Senate Intelligence Committees continue to press ahead in their investigations, even as a newly-appointed independent special counsel takes over the Justice Department and FBI investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

At a Wednesday briefing, press secretary Sean Spicer said inquiries about the Russian Federation investigation must be directed to Marc Kasowitz, another of Trump's personal attorneys.

Presidential transition questions have been raised - including by Republicans on the committee - about why those names weren't redacted and were distributed between intelligence agencies during the transition period between the two presidential administrations.

Among them is one-time Trump campaign surrogate, Boris Epshteyn, and Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

The US House Intelligence committee has issued subpoenas to President Donald Trump's personal lawyer and his former National Security Adviser.

Trump has urged leaders of Canada and Mexico to reach him on his cellphone, according to former and current US officials with direct knowledge of the practice.

"I declined the invitation to participate, as the request was poorly phrased, overly broad and not capable of being answered", Cohen told ABC News in an email Tuesday.

US privacy laws and intelligence regulations require that Americans' names picked up in foreign communications intercepts be concealed unless senior officials request them to be disclosed for intelligence or law enforcement purposes.

The GOP staffer, who was not authorized to discuss the issue publicly and spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the chairman has the authority to sign off on subpoenas and that all the committee rules were followed. He pleaded the fifth in response to a subpoena from Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner.

Two congressional sources say the three subpoenas for the unmasking investigation are for the FBI, CIA, and NSA in order to obtain information on unmasking requests made by former United Nations ambassador Samantha Power, former national security adviser Susan Rice and former CIA director John Brennan.

Two weeks ago Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Robert Muller as independent counsel in the Trump-Russia probe following two days of intense bipartisan criticism stemming from The New York Times reporting that recently fired FBI Director James Comey wrote a memo about a February meeting with President Donald Trump.

Also Wednesday, a Justice Department official confirmed that Mueller had named a top Justice Department official to his team. The longtime Justice official previously served as Federal Bureau of Investigation general counsel under Mueller.
