Samantha Power, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under former President Barack Obama, has agreed to testify before the House intelligence committee as part of its Russia probe.

According to Fox News, some lawmakers are eager to hear from Obama administration officials over their potential role in "unmasking" the identities of Trump associates from intelligence reports last year – and both Power and former national security adviser Susan Rice could face that grilling.

Rice is expected to speak to lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence Committee later this week, Fox News reported.

CNN, which first reported Power's appearance, said the testimony could come before Congress' August break.

"Ambassador Power strongly supports any bipartisan effort to investigate and address Russia's interference in our electoral process and she wanted to engage both House and Senate Committees charged with investigating it," Power's counsel, David Pressman, said in a statement to Fox.

"Ambassador Power is very much looking forward to providing any assistance and encouragement she can to bipartisan efforts aimed at addressing this serious threat to our nation's security."
