[Ed. – Transparently absurd, as lawmakers already know what there is to know about those phone calls — including that Don Jr’s calls with the famous blocked phone number(s) were not to his father. This is grandstanding, and it looks like we’re in for a lot of it in the coming months.]
Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee are preparing to issue a subpoena as soon as Thursday to obtain phone records linked to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer, two sources familiar with the matter tell The Hill.
The subpoena will be the first order Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) will issue as committee chairman, and the process of preparing the order came one day after the committee became formally constituted.
Details about the specifics of the subpoena remain unclear, but the order goes to the heart of the committee’s plan to investigate ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.
