WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on investigations into Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and Russia (all times local):

10:35 a.m.

President Donald Trump's former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, and senior White House aide, Rick Dearborn, are being interviewed Wednesday behind closed doors by the House Intelligence Committee looking into Trump campaign contacts with Russia.

That's according to two people familiar with the committee's work who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak on the record about confidential interviews.

Lewandowski led Trump's campaign for nearly a year before being fired before the general election. He has remained close to Trump and been a prominent defender of the president on television.

Dearborn was a campaign aide who later served on the presidential transition before joining Trump in the White House as deputy chief of staff. He is expected to leave the White House later this month.

1 a.m.

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has been subpoenaed by the House Intelligence Committee after refusing to answer a broad array of queries about his time working for President Donald Trump.

The development has brought to the forefront questions about White House efforts to control what the former adviser tells Congress about his time in Trump's inner circle and whether Republicans on Capitol Hill would force the issue.

The congressional subpoena came the same day The New York Times reported that Bannon has been subpoenaed by special counsel Robert Mueller to testify before a federal grand jury. Mueller is leading one investigation of potential coordination between Russia and Trump's presidential campaign, as well as possible obstruction of justice.
