2 former FBI leaders, Trump’s son to testify to committees
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House Intelligence Committee has invited two former FBI senior officials to testify about the counterintelligence implications of Robert Mueller’s investigation. Mueller did not find a criminal conspiracy between the campaign and Russia but did detail a series of interactions and outreach that have alarmed Democrats and accelerated calls from some in the party for impeachment proceedings and renewed investigations.
The report details more than 100 contacts between Russia and Trump associates, some in public and others in private, said Rep. Adam Schiff, the Democratic committee chairman. Among them was a June 2016 meeting at which the president’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., expected to receive dirt from Russia about his father’s Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Also Wednesday, Trump Jr. was scheduled to testify behind closed doors before the Senate Intelligence Committee , according to two people familiar with the meeting. Senators want to discuss answers he gave the panel’s staff in a 2017 interview and to another Senate panel in a separate interview that year.
