The House intelligence committee's investigation into Russian election meddling will once again hear from current and former top law enforcement and intelligence officials, the committee announced Friday.
It requested FBI Director James Comey and Adm. Mike Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency, to appear at a closed hearing on Tuesday. Additionally, it said it also has asked former CIA Director John Brennan, former National Intelligence Director James Clapper and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates to appear at an open hearing also scheduled for Tuesday.
The investigation is under new leadership after committee chairman Devin Nunes stepped aside under an ethics cloud that revolved in part around a previously scheduled meeting with Brennan, Clapper and Yates.
That hearing would have been the first opportunity for the public to hear Yates' account of her role in the firing of Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn. But it was canceled.
Yates alerted the White House in January that Flynn had been misleading in his account of a December phone call with the Russian ambassador to the United States in which economic sanctions against Russia were discussed. Flynn was ousted after those discrepancies were made public.
Yates was fired in January as acting attorney general after she refused to defend the Trump administration's first travel ban.
An attorney for Yates alleged that the Justice Department was guidance on what Yates could say about conversations she had with Trump — conversations the department indicated could be covered by executive privilege, then deferred to the White House, according to published correspondance.
The White House said it never sought to stop her from testifying.
