Roger Stone. the former Campaign adviser to President Donald Trump, said Thursday he has made the decision to testify before the House Intelligence committee, in a closed door hearing later this month.
“Although I have again called for an open public hearing in the interest of full transparency, the hearing is currently scheduled to be in a closed session,” Stone said in a statement. “I have again asked for immediate release of the transcripts so that there will be no confusion or misinformation about my testimony.”
Stone said that “all 20 members of the committee” will take part in the hearing set for the 26th of September. The panel, who has been investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between campaign officials and Russia, has yet to weigh in on the hearings.
“I very much look forward to testifying and I am anxious to correct a number of the misstatements by committee members regarding my activities in 2016,” Stone added Thursday.
