Comey, Yates to Testify in House Intel Hearing on Russia

FBI Director James Comey and former acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates are among the initial witnesses invited to testify before the first House hearing on Russian meddling in the U.S. election. According to a list released Tuesday by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the open hearing—set to begin Monday, March 20—will feature Comey; Yates, who warned the White House prior to her firing that NatSec adviser Michael Flynn had not been forthright about his conversations with Russia; NSA Director Mike Rogers; former CIA Director John Brennan; former director of national intelligence James Clapper; and two executives from CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity firm that uncovered proof of Russia’s hacking of the DNC during the 2016 election.
