Trump-Russia Investigation: US Congress issues subpoenas

Trump-Russia Investigation:  US Congress issues subpoenas

The U. S. house intelligence committee has issued subpoenas to president Donald Trump's former aide, Micheal Flynn and his lawyer, Michael Cohen. 

The committee is one of the several probes into alleged meddling by Moscow in last year's presidential election, and collusion with the Trump campaign. 

All of them have been dismissed by the president as "fake news".
Republican Mike Conaway and Democrat Adam Schiff, who head the committee, announced the move in a joint statement.
"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," they said.

Similar congressional requests for information have been sent to other former Trump aides, including Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and Carter Page.
The president's son-in-law and close adviser Jared Kushner is said to be under scrutiny as part of the FBI inquiry.
According to US media, he discussed setting up a back channel line of communication with Moscow's envoy to Washington.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced to recuse himself from the FBI investigation after it was revealed that he had failed to disclose several meetings with the Russian ambassador.
Senator Al Franken told MSNBC that he had asked former-FBI director James Comey to investigate even more meetings that Mr Sessions did not divulge during questions from senators at his confirmation hearing.
