President Trump fired Comey in early May and initially said he based the decision on the recommendations from both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Senators are expected to grill Comey and try to determine how forceful Trump was during talks about Flynn, and whether he actually tried to derail the probe.
Another congressional source, who also requested anonymity, said Democrats were "informed and consulted" before the subpoenas were issued.
The memorandums - the contents of which have been leaked to the media and have not been denied by Comey - reportedly document the president's efforts to get the FBI to ease the investigation's focus on Flynn. But Trump himself has repeatedly said that the Russian Federation probe was on his mind when he removed Comey.
The Trump administration said his handling of the inquiry into defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's emails was the reason for his dismissal.
Comey is not expected to testify about the details of the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.
Mr Flynn is one of several Trump associates who are drawing scrutiny in a series of probes about Russian Federation and last year's election.

The House Intelligence Committee's investigation is one of several congressional probes into Russian Federation, along with one by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
