You can’t hide. You can’t bury your head in the sand and hope this goes away. You can’t possibly be stupid enough to have believed you would get away with this.
That is the message that every member of Trump’s inner circle needs to receive. Two of those members were given that message loud and clear today. Former National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn and Trump Attorney, Michael Cohen have been hit with subpoenas from the House Intelligence Committee.
The House intelligence committee issued subpoenas Wednesday to former national security adviser Michael Flynn and President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, as part of the probe into Russian activity during the 2016 election.
The subpoenas, the first from the House panel, seek their testimony, as well as documents from their businesses.
“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,” Reps. Michael Conaway, R-Texas, and Adam Schiff, D-California — the co-leaders of the House investigation — said Wednesday in a statement.
“We hope and expect that anyone called to testify or provide documents will comply with that request, so that we may gain all the information within the scope of our investigation. We will continue to pursue this investigation wherever the facts may lead,” they added.
The subpoenas come a day after Cohen said he would not cooperate with congressional investigators and amid turmoil inside the House investigation itself, as lawmakers wrangle with the role of House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, R-California, in the probe. – CNN
