Trump, after House panel subpoenas, backs probing Obama administration


The retired Army general is the subject of congressional, Justice Department and Defense Department investigations into his apparent failure to disclose payments he received from Russian and Turkish entities. The FBI has not been forthcoming with the requested information, a committee aide said.

In response, the Senate panel narrowed the scope of its request.

The four Russia-oriented subpoenas were all requested by Schiff, and are duplicative of subpoenas issued by the Senate Intelligence Committee, according to Fox News. The other, Flynn Intel Group LLC, was used to accept money from Flynn's paid speeches.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal committee matters.

It was later disclosed that Nunes, a close ally to the president, secretly viewed the documents at the White House, after Trump made unsubstantiated claims that Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower in NY in an attempt to quell suspicions that Russian Federation assisted his campaign. Putin also said the allegations are "fiction" invented by the Democrats in order to explain their loss.

Still, President Trump has downplayed the investigation on Twitter, calling it a witch hunt and an excuse for why Democrats lost.

Cohen told ABC he turned down the invitations. "What I have been urging is that we have a committee vote".

Democrats on the committee largely oppose these subpoenas because they believe the intelligence agencies have been cooperative. The aide later retracted the statement.

Griffin has since apologised and acknowledged she went "too far" on this occasion. This means she will not be hosting New Year's Eve for 2018 with Anderson Cooper.

Schiff said Thursday that he did not understand the necessity of issuing the subpoenas other than "publicity".

Cohen, a longtime attorney for the Trump Organization, remains a personal lawyer for Trump.

USA intelligence agencies reported in January that Russian President Vladimir Putin oversaw a campaign of computer hacking, fake news and propaganda meant to swing the election to Republican Trump over his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The House Intelligence Committee, under the leadership of Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, made at least 5-6 unmasking requests to USA spy agencies related to Russia's election meddling between June 2016-January 2017, the Washington Post reported on Friday.

Calls and emails to Kasowitz's NY firm were not immediately returned on Wednesday. And while that scandal unfolds, it appears the Russian government is attempting to expand its ability to strike at the U.S.

Nunes's visit to CIA headquarters to review intelligence related to Russian Federation, rankled Democrats who said he was violating the spirit of his recusal. The development was first reported by CNN. Cohen also owned and operated a handful of taxi medallions, managing a fleet of cabs in NY. Nunes also issued three subpoenas to intelligence agencies for documents about former Obama administration officials who authorized the earlier unmasking, apparently without committee Democrats signing off on the subpoenas.
