The House Intelligence Committee will Interview former National Security Adviser Susan Rice next month as part of their investigation into Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election.
The White House and Republicans have put a heavy focus on the allegations that Rice revealed the names of Trump’s transition team members in Intelligence reports claiming that the Obama administration was seeking to release damaging information about the Trump campaign.
Rice has denied any wrong-doing, but, to this point, has refused to answer questions from lawmakers, including declining to appear before the Senate Judiciary subcommittee in May. Rice has now agreed to appear in a closed-door hearing that is expected to take place before the House’s August recess.
“Ambassador Rice is cooperating with bipartisan Russia investigations conducted by the Intelligence Committees as she said she would,” said Erin Pelton, a spokesperson for Rice.
