The Senate Intelligence Committee is gearing up for a highly-anticipated showdown with former Obama officials Wednesday; preparing to grill top aides over allegations of Russian election interference in the 2016 race for the White House.
According to Fox News, the Committee is expected to interview former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA director John Brennan, former NSA Director Michael Rogers, and possibly former FBI director James Comey.
Those close to the panel say Comey “plans to skip” Wednesday’s behind-closed-doors discussions due to a “previously scheduled engagement.”
The Committee, led by Sen. Richard Burr and Sen. Mark Warner, hope to “wrap up” their investigation by the end of the summer.
“This gives staff the month of August in all likelihood to wrap up our investigation and for staff to work intensely while we’re out of here and not getting in their hair,” said Sen. Burr.
