on

Longtime Donald Trump confidante has been subpoenaed by Congress but is considering whether to violate the legal order.

On Saturday, The New York Times published a story wondering if Hicks would comply with the subpoena from the House Judiciary Committee.

The United States announced Friday that it was sending military reinforcements to the Gulf region following attacks on Saudi oil facilities that it attributes to Iran, just hours after President Donald Trump ordered new sanctions on Tehran.

Trump said the sanctions were the toughest-ever against another country, but indicated he did not plan a military strike, calling restraint a sign of strength.

The Treasury Department renewed action against Iran's central bank after US officials said Tehran carried out weekend attacks on rival Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure, which triggered a spike in global crude prices.
