The House Intelligence Committee's cancellation of a public hearing on Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election has been trashed by the group's ranking member.

"We don't welcome cutting off public access to information," Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, told reporters after chairman, Devin Nunes, a California Republican, announced the Tuesday event had been called off, The Hill reports.

Nunes said the cancellation was to accommodate closed-door testimony by FBI director James Comey and NSA chief Michael Rogers, and not because last Monday's open hearing appeared damaging to the GOP.

The chair has been under fire for briefing President Donald Trump with claims that U.S. intelligence inadvertently gained surveillance on the commander-in-chief's transition team before telling Democrats on the panel about it.
