Brennan was scheduled to testify in late March, but his previous appearance was canceled by Republican Devin Nunes (R-CA).
Schiff gave harsh criticism for Nunes’ decision to cancel the hearing:
“Chairman just cancelled open Intelligence Committee hearing with (former Director of National Intelligence James) Clapper, (former CIA Director John) Brennan and (former deputy Attorney General Sally) Yates in attempt to choke off public info.”
Brennan was still in charge of the CIA when it first broke out that Russia was helping Trump during the 2016 presidential election.
We will find out what Brennan has to say on Tuesday.
