House Panel Subpoenas Michael Flynn And Rick Gates

The New York Times reports:

The Democratic-led House Intelligence Committee said on Thursday that it had issued two new subpoenas demanding that Michael T. Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, and Rick Gates, a former top Trump campaign aide, provide testimony and documents related to their interactions with Russians and other foreign powers.

The subpoenas, dated Wednesday, are tied to the Intelligence Committee’s investigation of Russia’s attempts to influence the American political system and whether Russia or other foreign interests could have influence over Mr. Trump, his family or associates.

Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, the Intelligence Committee’s chairman, said Thursday that the subpoenas were necessary because Mr. Flynn and Mr. Gates had so far refused to fully cooperate with the committee voluntarily.
