WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been subpoenaed by the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee in its probe into possible Russian election meddling and ties to the Trump campaign, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday.

The AP report, citing an unidentified congressional aide, came after Cohen told ABC News he had been asked to provide information and testimony to investigators in the House and Senate, but that he declined because "the request was poorly phrased, overly broad and not capable of being answered."
