Comey OK'd to testify; House committee issues subpoenas

It also approved subpoenas for the Flynn Intel Group LLC and for Michael D. Cohen & Associates PC.

A source close to Flynn said Tuesday that the former national security adviser would comply with a series of Senate subpoenas issued for documents from Flynn and his businesses.

However, those three Obama administration officials did not personally receive subpoenas, the sources told the Journal.

Flynn's cooperation was the first signal that he and the Senate panel have found common ground.

The Times reported that the peace plan was the work of Felix Sater, a business associate who has helped Trump try to find business in Russian Federation, and Cohen.

Flynn is under investigation in the ongoing probe into allegations of collusion between US President Donald Trump's associates and Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

"The Committee welcomes the testimony of former Director Comey, but does not have an announcement to make at this time", said Rebecca Glover, spokeswoman for Republican committee Chairman Richard Burr.

The committee has subpoenaed the National Security Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency for information about what is called "unmasking".

The names of American citizens who are caught up in incidental surveillance are protected by law, with very few exceptions granted to unmask them, even within classified material.

Trump to announce decision on global climate deal
During the G 7 Summit in Italy on Sunday, Trump said that he would decide next week whether to be part of the climate agreement. Though it remains the largest global carbon emitter, China also leads the world in total installed solar and wind capacity.

Flynn resigned in February following reports that he had diplomatically engaged Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak prior to President Trump taking office and that Flynn misled Vice President Mike Pence about that conversation.

The Maryland and NY compounds were seized under the Obama administration in December as part of a larger action targeting Russian diplomats whom it said were spies.

Republican Representative Adam Kinzinger, a House Foreign Relations Committee member, also questioned Nunes' actions in a separate CNN interview.

A top communications aide to President Donald Trump is exiting the White House as the embattled president considers a broader shakeup amid rising anxiety over investigations into his campaign's contacts with Russian Federation.

A day after former National Security Adviser retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn reportedly agreed to turn over documents to the Senate Intelligence Committee, the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday issued a new set of subpoenas seeking similar information.

On Capitol Hill, a rift continued between Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the chairman of the House intelligence committee, and Democrats on the panel.

A separate FBI probe that was led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller and the latest actions of the committee prove lawmakers have not given up their own Russian Federation investigations.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied leading efforts to interfere in last year's USA election.

The Maryland and NY compounds were seized under the Obama administration in December as part of a larger action over what the former president said was Russian involvement in hacking political groups in the November 8 United States presidential election.
