Senate Comm. Sets Date for Yates, Clapper to Testify in Russia Probe

The Senate Judiciary Committee announced that Sally Yates and James Clapper will testify on Russian meddling in the 2016 election at a hearing on May 8.

The Senate Judiciary’s subpanel on crime and terrorism, chaired by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), will hear testimony from Yates, former acting attorney general, and Clapper, former director of national intelligence.

Yates and Clapper are also expected to appear before an open House Intelligence hearing after May 2. On that date, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey will appear before the committee in a closed session, Politico reported.

The House's committee is still at work on rescheduling the testimony from Yates that was canceled by then-chairman Rep. Devin Nunes. Nunes stepped away from the committee two weeks after that to fights ethics charges.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has faced doubts from Democrats and others, as no interviews have been conducted with key players in the Russia probe, and no staff members are dedicated to the probe full time.
