Roger Stone, a longtime friend and adviser to President Donald Trump, said Thursday he will testify in front of the House Intelligence Committee later this month regarding Russian interference in last year's election.

Stone posted the news on his Twitter account.

The Sept. 26 session will be closed to the media and the public, Stone said in a separate 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, Politico reported. "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 said last summer he has been in contact with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and has said multiple times that Russia did not hack into a Democratic National Committee server as others, including the DNC itself, have suggested.

Lawmakers looking into allegations that the Trump campaign may have colluded with Russia will question Stone on what he knows. He has worked as a political consultant, lobbyist, and strategist for years.

After former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed the special counsel of the Department of Justice's Russia probe in May, Stone said Mueller would "find absolutely nothing" that shows collusion existed between the Trump campaign and Russia.
