The House Intelligence Committee released a statement Wednesday, saying it will call witnesses when it is ready, pushing back on the "preferences of outside parties," the Washington Examiner reported.
That means you, President Donald Trump and Carter Page.
"Mr. Conaway and I have agreed to review relevant documents before interviewing witnesses, as you would expect in a comprehensive investigation," ranking member Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said in the statement, the Examiner reported.
Rep. Mike Conaway, R-Texas, took over chairmanship of the committee last month for the embattled Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who recused himself to fight ethics charges.
"And while we anticipate interviews to begin shortly, we have agreed that the pace of those interviews will be dictated by the needs of the investigation and not the preferences of outside parties," Schiff said.
The committee ostensibly was reacting to the morning tweets of the president who waxed indignant Wednesday over the committee's "witch-hunt" for not allowing Page to testify.
While others under investigation are running the other way from having to testify, Page, a former Trump aide, wants to appear in the worst way.
Page has sent two letters to the committee thus far clamoring to testify so he can clear his name and expose what he calls illegal FISA warrants issued against him during the Obama administration.
