WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House intelligence committee was expected to issue subpoenas on Wednesday to President Donald Trump's former national security adviser and his personal lawyer in connection with its probe of Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election, sources familiar with the matter said.

The subpoenas were expected to be delivered to retired Army General Michael Flynn, who was sacked as national security adviser by Trump in February, and the president's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, the sources said.
