Senate Subpoenas Former Trump Adviser Carter Page

Carter PageThe Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed documents and testimony from Carter Page as part of its investigation of Russia's alleged intervention in the 2016 election, a source directly familiar with the matter told NBC News.

The committee expects Page will invoke his Fifth Amendment rights and refuse to answer questions, the source said.

It's a dramatic switch for Page, who earlier this year seemed eager to participate in the Senate probe. Page has said he was interviewed by the FBI in March about potential ties between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russians.

In an email, Page referred NBC News to comments he made to the Washington Examiner in a story published October 11. "I have offered to participate in the November first hearing," he told the paper. He did not confirm or deny that he had been served with a subpoena from the committee.
