Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson is set to testify next Wednesday before the House Intelligence committee looking into collusion between Russia and some of President Donald Trump's campaign members during the 2016 presidential election, CNN reported.
"I'm here voluntarily to assist the House intelligence committee on a matter of great importance," the former DHS secretary said after Tuesday's meeting with leaders of the House Intelligence Russia investigation. "So, I welcome the opportunity to do that to help strengthen our nation's cybersecurity."
Johnson, who served under President Barack Obama as Homeland Security chief from 2013 until early 2017, was interviewed Monday by Senate Intelligence committee staff in a closed-doors meeting.
He will likely face questions about Russian attempts to hack the U.S. election systems. Johnson's appearance follows high-profile hearings from former FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Both the House and Senate Intelligence Committee are conducting separate probes into Russian meddling and the Justice Department’s investigation is being led by special counsel Robert Mueller.
