The House Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates to turn over documents by June 26 and testify on July 10.

Why it matters: Flynn and Gates both struck guilty pleas with special counsel Robert Mueller and were key witnesses in his investigation. The two former top campaign aides are currently awaiting sentencing.

The House Intelligence Committee announced on Friday that it will hold an open hearing on June 12 covering the "counterintelligence implications" of the Mueller report.

Driving the news: "Our Committee's goal will be to explain to the American people the serious counterintelligence concerns raised by the Mueller Report, examine the depth and breadth of the unethical and unpatriotic conduct it describes, and produce prescriptive remedies to ensure that this never happens again," Chairman of U.S. House Intelligence Committee Rep. Adam Schiff wrote in a statement.
