Four of the seven subpoenas are for "testimony, personal documents and business records" from former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, as well as their respective businesses. Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said that in 2016 alone, almost 2,000 names of USA citizens were unmasked.

Pelosi says Rep. Devin Nunes should not be issuing subpoenas because he stepped aside from the investigation after being criticized for being too close to the White House.
Committee aides complained he had acted unilaterally, and the top Democrat on the panel, Representative Adam Schiff, said Nunes' actions amounted to a breach of his recusal decision.
"There is no substance to this, so the only way to look at it is as an attempt to distract the headlines and the public from Comey's public testimony and Mueller's investigation, both of which are serious", said one of the US officials familiar with the information Nunes subpoenaed.

Four of the subpoenas are related to the Russian Federation investigation. But Democrats were only informed about other subpoenas - those related to unmasking - at the last minute. The Russian government was unable to offer a similar response, which for Putin and his cabinet raises a question of whether the USA has no spies, or whether the Russians are just bad at finding them.
