Pete Sessions subpoenaed:

Former Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) has been subpoenaed by a federal grand jury in New York for documents and other information about his interactions with Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer and fixer, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal report. Sessions said he’s cooperating with federal prosecutors in Manhattan. How does a Texas congressman who lost his re-election bid last year fit into Trump’s Ukraine scandal? A federal indictment unsealed last week provides some clues.

The indictment charges two of Giuliani’s associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, with conspiracy and campaign finance violations, including allegedly promising an unidentified congressman an impermissibly high campaign donation as they were seeking his “assistance in causing the U.S. government to remove or recall the then-U.S. ambassador to Ukraine,” Marie Yovanovitch.
