A U.S. House committee subpoenaed the acting director of national intelligence over a whistleblower complaint, saying that he was improperly withholding the complaint from Congress.

Representative Adam Schiff, a California Democrat and the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, issued the subpoena to the acting director, Joseph Maguire, “to compel the production of a whistleblower complaint that the Intelligence Community” inspector general “determined to be credible and a matter of ‘urgent concern,”’ the committee said in a statement on Friday night.
