US House committees threaten Trump administration subpoenas over documents

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Three U.S. House of Representatives Committees on Monday threatened to issue subpoenas to obtain documents related to President Donald Trump's dealings with Ukraine if the administration does not comply with their request.
