House intel panel approves subpoenas for Flynn, Trump lawyer Cohen

On Tuesday, Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, acknowledged that he is resisting a request from congressional investigators seeking information from him about possible contacts with Russian Federation.

The committee is one of several probes into alleged meddling by Moscow in last year's presidential election, and any collusion with the Trump campaign. Trump attorney Michael Cohen had refused to voluntarily comply with an earlier informal request, but had said he'd comply with and formal subpoenas. It also approved subpoenas for the Flynn Intel Group LLC and for Michael D. Cohen & Associates PC. "We will continue to pursue this investigation wherever the facts may lead", they added. Flynn's story has continued to dog the White House, most recently with the report that President Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation into Flynn. Kushner is under scrutiny in the FBI's Russian Federation probe. He called the investigation a "rush to judgment".

In an interview with French daily Le Figaro on Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin described the allegations of Russian interference as "fiction" invented by Democrats to justify their election defeat. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.

News reports said that the committee also had subpoenaed three former officials in a probe into whether Obama administration officials improperly unmasked the identities of Americans monitored in contacts with foreign officials.

New smart speaker expected as Apple kicks off conference
HomePod will go on sale in December in Australia, the USA and the United Kingdom and will cost American consumers $349 (A$465). Apple says the A8 processor chip - the one used in the iPhone - means HomePod will be the "smartest home speaker" on offer.

Calls and emails to Kasowitz's NY firm were not immediately returned on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump says celebrity Kathy Griffin "should be ashamed of herself" for appearing in a video holding what looked like Trump's bloody, severed head.

Nunes subsequently admitted he had received the information in the White House complex, explaining it was the only safe place to examine the classified material. While Nunes has recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation due to his handling of classified information, he has not recused himself from the unmasking probe.

In most cases, the identities of US citizens picked up in such surveillance are supposed to be kept confidential in intelligence reports. And the congressional committees can seek congressional rulings that any who refuse to co-operate be held in contempt - for which they could ultimately be jailed.

Reuters reported Flynn, whom Trump fired in February regarding disclosures about his Russian ties to Vice President Mike Pence, and Cohen were subpoenaed.

The Journal reported Power has not been previously named in the committee's investigation - "so her inclusion in the subpoenas may mean Republicans are broadening their areas of investigation".

However, the source said it was too early to determine what percentage of that original request would be filled or how soon the entire request would be met.

The papers are related to two of Flynn's businesses and also include personal documents, according to a person close to the former security adviser.
