House Panel Issues Subpoenas to Flynn, Michael Cohen in Russia Probe

The House intelligence committee approved subpoenas for two individuals as a part of the ongoing investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election: former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen.

Why the change? Because after receiving Flynn's nyet, the Senate committee turned around and started sending subpoenas to Flynn's companies.

The committee said it had approved subpoenas for Cohen and for Trump's former national security advisor Michael Flynn to appear before them and supply documents.

The special counsel overseeing the government's investigation into possible Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation has approved former FBI director James Comey to testify before a Senate committee pursuing the same matter, a Comey associate said Wednesday.

The leadership of another committee, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, has obtained documents from that show Flynn was paid more than $33,000 for the speech.

"If the reports are accurate, subpoenas related to the "unmasking" issue would have been sent by Chairman Nunes acting separately from the committee's Russian Federation investigation", the aide said in an email, referring to Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who recused himself from the Russian Federation probe after the House Ethics Committee said it was investigating him for improperly revealing classified information.

The House intelligence committee has issued subpoenas for former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Cohen also told CNN that if he was subpoenaed, "I will comply - and gladly - as I have nothing to hide".

A source close to Flynn tells NPR's Mary Louise Kelly that "we agree he can not invoke the Fifth Amendment with respect to business records, so he will produce those". All of the subpoenas were signed by Rep.

The former adviser's attorneys told the panel last week that Flynn would hold onto his documents, invoking his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

Coats said he'd been traveling and hadn't spoken to Trump about his Oval Office meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak.

While Flynn has been a known target of congressional and Justice Department investigations into possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump presidential campaign, MichaelCohen has only recently become a focus of the probe, for unknown reasons.

A congressional probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States election has expanded to include Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Flynn, who served as Trump's national security adviser for a mere 24 days, has featured in numerous investigation's most compelling events. A wider overhaul is expected, aimed at more aggressively responding to allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and revelations of possible ties between Trump's campaign and Moscow.

The House panel is one of the congressional committees investigating alleged Russian interference in the election.

The White House is preparing to establish a "war room" to combat mounting questions about ties between Russian Federation and Trump's presidential campaign, a scandal that has threatened to consume his young presidency.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer speaks during the daily press briefing at the White House in Washington, Tuesday, May 30, 2017.

Democrats say Comey's dismissal was aimed at hindering the FBI's Russian Federation investigation, which has since been taken over by a special counsel, Robert Mueller, himself a former FBI director.

New media reports containing generally vague and unsubstantiated allegations continue to emerge nearly on an hourly basis. The president later said in an interview on NBC News that he was concerned about the FBI investigation into what he called the "Russia thing".
