The Senate Intelligence Committee has reportedly subpoenaed documents and testimony from former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page as part of its probe of Russia's meddling in the 2016 election.

Page, a New York energy investor, was asked by Senate investigators to turn over records pertaining to Russian contacts and communications for the past seven years — and expressed concern the request could lead to entrapment, Fox News reported.

NBC News, citing an unnamed source, said Page is expected to invoke his Fifth Amendment rights and refuse to answer questions.

Page referred NBC News to comments he made to the Washington Examiner on Oct. 11, when he stated: "I have offered to participate in the November first hearing."

The committee has scheduled an open hearing Nov. 1 with social media giants including Twitter, Facebook, and Google, NBC News noted.

The subpoena comes after months of Senate Intelligence Committee interviews with people of interest in the Russia probe. Earlier this month, the panel's chairman, Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and ranking Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., announced the committee has analyzed over 100,000 pages of documents in the course of the investigation, NBC News reported.
