Trump-Russia Investigation Kicks Into High Gear. Trump Gets Bad News From Congress

The House Intelligence Committee just announced it has scheduled its first hearing on the Trump-Russia scandal, signaling the start of an extraordinary probe on Trump’s chaotic administration.

The Republican-led Committee is asking former Obama administration officials to testify in its first open hearing this month as part of the panel’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, Politico reported.

According to the report, those being asked to testify March 20 include former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who was fired by President Donald Trump in January after refusing to defend his travel ban executive order in court. FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Mike Rogers were also asked to testify.

The invite list could be expanded, House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) told reporters.

The Intelligence panel is conducting a wide-ranging investigation that will include looking into contacts between Russian officials and the Trump campaign.

Nunes said the witnesses were being asked to testify willingly and that he did not plan to issue subpoenas at this point. But House Democrats are ready to issue subpoenas if key witnesses refuse to testify voluntarily.
