House Issues Subpoenas to Top Officials Related to Obama Unmasking Scandal

Seven subpoenas were issued by the House Intelligence Committee related to “Russian” meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The subpoenas are related to the illegal unmasking of political opponents by the Obama administration.

Three of the seven subpoenas are related to the reports saying that members of the “Trump team” were identified in “foreign surveillance reports, and had their names ‘unmasked’.”

Four of the subpoenas are targeting Mike Flynn, Michael Cohen and companies they were involved in.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

WASHINGTON—The House Intelligence Committee issued seven subpoenas, in a sign that its investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election is advancing in scope and intensity, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Republican-led committee issued four subpoenas related to the Russia investigation, targeting President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser Mike Flynn, Mr. Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and their businesses. The committee is also investigating possible ties between Trump associates and Russia.

The other three subpoenas were issued to the National Security Agency, the FBI, and the Central Intelligence Agency for information about a procedure known as “unmasking.” The subpoenas are related to questions about how and why the names of the president’s associates were unredacted and distributed within classified reports by Obama administration officials during the transition between administrations.

Democrats are seeking an aggressive investigation into Mr. Trump and his associates, and Republicans are pushing for a probe into the unmasking.
