Comey OK'd to testify; House committee issues subpoenas

Flynn's reported acquiescence comes less than a week after his attorneys said their client would not comply with the Committee's May 10 subpoena and just hours after President Donald Trump's personal business attorney Michael Cohen's wow of non-compliance with Congress was met with the issuance of a subpoena by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

The source, who requested anonymity to discuss sensitive matters, confirmed details first published by The Associated Press Tuesday, and said Flynn would turn over personal documents, as well as specific business records.

But the others are requests for three intelligence agencies and concern their Obama-era activities. The Senate has already issued subpoenas to Flynn personally, and to his businesses.

The House panel pursuing its own investigation of the Trump campaign and possible Russian Federation ties has also sought information from Comey, asking the FBI to turn over documents related to his interactions with both the White House and the Justice Department.

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.

Looking confident and in red-hot form, Williams broke serve to love once again to be just a game away from winning the match. Kvitova threw her racket in frustration after double-faulting on match point, but the players warmly embraced at the net.

Both the House and Senate intelligence committees invited Cohen to "provide information and testimony".

The Senate Intelligence Committee voted unanimously on May 25 to authorise its chairman, Republican Senator Richard Burr, and its top-ranking Democratic, Mark Warner, to issue subpoenas that would force the attorney to respond to their demands. But officials can request that names - listed as "U.S. Person 1", for example - be unmasked internally in order to give context about the potential value of the intelligence.

"To date, there has not been a single witness, document or piece of evidence linking me to this fake Russian conspiracy, " Cohen said in a text message to USA TODAY on Tuesday. He then told journalists and White House officials that Trump or his closest associates may have been "incidentally" swept up in foreign surveillance by American spy agencies.

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen will be subpoenaed to testify in the Russian political meddling investigation by the House Intelligence committee, the panel announced Wednesday.

Republicans have taken up the cause of unmasking of Trump officials as part of its attempt to deflect scrutiny into the Republican president's murky Russian Federation ties.
