First Subpoenas Issued in House Russia Probe

"I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee's Russian Federation investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter", his statement said. But Democrats have argued that Nunes should transfer subpoena power in the Russian Federation probe to Rep. Conaway.

But Nunes' actions over the last month have Democrats complaining he is violating the spirit of his promise to step aside from leading the investigation.

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.

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. However, under Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, those agencies can collect information on a foreign target and "incidentally" collect communications by or about an American, without a warrant.

Several U.S. officials speaking on the condition of anonymity have told Reuters that all such requests by Obama's administration were properly vetted and appropriate.

US privacy laws and intelligence regulations require that Americans' names picked up in foreign communications intercepts be concealed unless senior officials request them to be disclosed for intelligence or law enforcement purposes.

U.S. President Donald Trump interacts with reporters as he welcomes Vietnam's Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, U.S. May 31, 2017.

On Capitol Hill, a rift continued between Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., the chairman of the House intelligence committee, and Democrats on the panel. Schiff said committee rules allow Nunes to delegate that authority to Conaway.

The House intelligence committee was expected to issue subpoenas on Wednesday to President Donald Trump's former national security adviser and his personal lawyer plus Obama administration officials, sources familiar with the matter said. But committee aides confirmed that three other subpoenas were sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the NSA for information related to the unmasking of Trump campaign officials.

During his confirmation hearing in January, Sessions testified that he "did not have any communications with the Russians" during the campaign and said in a written statement given to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was not in contact with anyone linked to the Russian government during the campaign.

Nations Cut Diplomatic Ties to Qatar as Gulf Rift Deepens
Qatar is the world's largest liquefied natural gas exporter, according to the International Energy Agency. The move is seen as a significant split between powerful Gulf countries that are also close U.S. allies.

"Seeing a lot of fake news from media elites and others who have no interest in violations of Americans' civil liberties via unmaskings", he wrote.

Representative Jim Himes, a Democrat on the House Intelligence panel, replied to Trump's tweet, calling it a "pathetic distraction". President Trump has argued that the leaks should be the focus of the investigation.

At the beginning of April, Democrats were accusing Nunes of coordinating with the Trump White House to derail the House Russia probe. "It looks like once again he is acting as a puppet for the administration", Wertheimer said.

"You'll have to ask him", Pelosi said of Ryan.

London Bridge attacker had 'twice been reported to police' for extremist views
In a flurry of early-morning tweets , Trump challenged London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying there was "no reason to be alarmed". When a close friend suffers a vicious attack, surely the least you can do is offer condolences and best wishes.

That is why the latest maneuverings of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) are disturbing. Nunes has been seeking documents in the unmasking scandal since March 1. He recused himself after odd feints that appeared to be nothing more than an effort, in conjunction with the White House, to confuse the probe by highlighting Trump's dubious claim that he was wiretapped by the outgoing administration. Fellow Republicans, Democrats, and independent watchdog groups all treated the move as a recusal, suggesting there was a distinction without a difference.
