The House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday issued subpoenas to three top White House officials in an investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia.
The subpoenas seek documents related to “the extent to which Mr. Trump and his associates used foreign money and influence to obtain a favorable decision for a foreign government and the extent to the President’s alleged improper conduct.”
Rep. Adam Schiff, the committee’s ranking Democrat, said the subpoenas also sought documents related “to his involvement in the Russian bribery scandal and his use of foreign money to obtain favorable treatment for himself and his family.”
The subpoenases were first reported by The Hill.
Schiff also said the subpoena was in response to a request from a Senate Intelligence Committee aide.
Trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in his dealings with Russia, including his involvement with the Kremlin’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 election and his alleged ties to the Kremlin.
The White House said Wednesday that the subpoenases, filed late Wednesday, are unrelated to the Russia investigation.
Schiff said the House is also looking into possible collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russia in the ongoing probe.
