Yates, Comey Invited to Testify in House Intel Hearing on Russia

FBI Director James Comey and former acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates are among the first invited to testify before the House Intelligence Committee on Russian meddling in the U.S. election, according to a list released by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Yates warned the White House that National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had not been truthful about his conversations with Russia before being fired.  Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly refute President Trump’s claim that President Obama wiretapped his phones.

Also invited are two executives from CrowdStrike Inc., a cyber security company that uncovered evidence of Russian hacking.  Former director of national intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan and National Security Agency chief Mike Rogers.

 

The hearing will be the first in-depth public inquiry into allegations of collusion between the Russian government and Donald Trump’s campaign, to influence the U.S. election.
