The news of the letter comes a day after leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee received the broad authority to issue subpoenas in the Russia investigation without a full committee vote. 

The panel voted unanimously to give Burr and Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-Va.) the blanket authority for the duration of the investigation into Russia's election meddling and possible collusion with President Trump's campaign.

The two Senate leaders must be in agreement in order to issue an order.
