Federal officials are widening their probe into mortgage lenders to include potential violations of FHA program rules. If violations are discovered, banks could be forced to help cover some of FHA's losses. Sources say subpoenas were recently issued to lenders including MetLife (MET), SunTrust (STI) and U.S. Bancorp (USB).
