This is one of the most intriguing items on the list. Investigators seek “the contents of meetings between President Trump and Vladimir Putin” from 2017 through November 2018.

The meetings have diverged from normal practice, with Trump choosing to meet with a limited number of aides without a U.S. translator. Some of those asked about the contents of the meetings — including Trump CFO Allen Weisselberg and Erik Prince — suggest that the investigation could progress in unexpected directions.

House investigators are interested in the following witnesses and entities:

-Trump CFO Allen Weisselberg

-Brad Parscale, digital media director for Trump’s 2016 campaign, vendor to the Trump Inaugural Committee

-Venture capitalist, Deripaska-linked Christopher Bancroft Burnham


-Former White House Counsel Don McGahn

-Donald Trump Jr., presidential son and Trump Org executive

-Eric Trump, son of the president and Trump Org executive

-Tom Bossert, lawyer and former Trump Homeland Security Advisor 

-Jeff Sessions, former attorney general

-Steve Bannon, former Trump 2016 CEO and White House chief strategist. Ex-vice-president of the board of Cambridge Analytica

-Michael Cohen,  former personal attorney and fixer for President Trump

-Michael Flynn, former Trump campaign adviser and U.S. national security adviser

-Michael Flynn Jr., Flynn’s son and an aide on the 2016 campaign
