    Attorney General Jeff Sessions will appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee for an open hearing Tuesday, the committee has announced. Sessions requested that the hearing be public, a Justice Department spokesperson said in a statement. "The Attorney General has requested that this hearing be public. He believes it is important for the American people to hear the truth directly from him and looks forward to answering the committee's questions tomorrow," the statement read. Sessions’s testimony comes just days after fired FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers that he knew details that made Sessions's involvement in the bureau's Russia probe "problematic."...

    Less than a week after former FBI Director James Comey was fired by President Donald Trump, Comey is reportedly ready to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, but he has one important condition that must be met if he is to testify: The hearing needs to be held in public. The New York Times reported on Friday “a close associate” of Comey told reporters for the Times Comey is willing to testify, but he wants the hearing to be conducted in public. Comey rejected an invitation offered by the Senate Intelligence Committee on Friday to testify in a closed-door session....

    Susan Rice, former President Obama's national security adviser, dodged a question Tuesday on her willingness to testify before Congress over reports that she sought several times to "unmask" the identities of U.S. persons in intelligence reports linked to President Trump's transition and campaign. "[Sen.] Rand Paul is suggesting that you be subpoenaed to testify," MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell said to Rice. "Would you be willing to go to Capitol Hill?" "Andrea, let's see what comes. I'm not going to sit here and prejudge," Rice responded. Rice then shifted the conversation from a possible subpoena to discuss the ongoing investigations into...

    If former National Security Advisor Susan Rice though she could get away from the current furore over the Trump "unmasking" scandal with just one MSNBC interview in which Andrea Mitchell did not even ask her why she lied two weeks ago to PBS, she will be disappointed as moments ago Dow Jones reported that the House Intelligence Panel has asked Susan Rice to testify, supposedly under oath.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 9/12/16 | Sarah Westwood
    FBI Director James Comey refused to appear before the House Oversight Committee on Monday despite receiving an invitation to testify about the bureau's reluctance to disclose thousands of pages of evidence compiled in its year-long investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email use. Rep. Elijah Cummings, the committee's top Democrat, said Comey had declined to appear at the hearing because he had "already bent over backwards" to explain the FBI's decision-making in the Clinton email case. But Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the Oversight Committee, disputed the suggestion that he had even invited Comey, noting he had discussed specific points of...

    A judge has given Hillary Clinton until Tuesday to reveal why she shouldn’t be forced to testify in a federal case about Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s double-dipping employment at the State Department.As WND reported Friday, Washington watchdog Judicial Watch asked a federal judge for permission to put Clinton under oath and ask her questions about her emails – even though the FBI investigated and said that while Clinton was “extremely careless” in her handling of secret information, she should not be charged formally for her actions. The motion for permission to depose Clinton and two others was submitted to...

    Call it conspiracy theory, coincidence or just bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to bring down Hillary Clinton by testifying they wind up dead. In fact, there’s a long history of Clinton-related body counts, with scores of people dying under mysterious circumstances. Perhaps the most notable is Vince Foster. Foster was a partner at Clinton’s law firm and knew the inner workings of the Clinton Machine. Police ruled that death a suicide, though it is often noted that Foster may have been suicided. Now, another official has found himself on the wrong end of the Clintons....

    Ashe was due in court Monday with his Chinese businessman co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, who is charged with smuggling $4.5 million into the US since 2013 and lying that it was to buy art and casino chips. Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funneled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration. (Ng was not charged with any crime.) Ng and Trie had visited the White House several times for Democratic fund-raising events and were photographed with then-President Bill Clinton...

    Sen. Tom Cotton accepted the challenge, but President Obama’s speechwriter and high-ranking foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes ducked out of a hearing Tuesday where he was to explain whether he misled the country in pushing the Iran nuclear deal. Members of Congress had been eager to prod Mr. Rhodes over misrepresentations, but the White House had seemed skeptical, saying lawmakers should poke one of their own, Mr. Cotton, an Arkansas Republican that Mr. Obama’s aides say has been misleading.

    Conservative commentators are up in arms over the State Department’s decision to deny a visa to a Catholic nun who was part of an Iraqi delegation supposed to testify before Congress about Islamic State (ISIS) atrocities. The US consulate in Erbil rejected the visitor visa application of Sister Diana Momeka earlier this week, saying she was “not able to demonstrate that [her] intended activities in the United States would be consistent with the classification of the visa.” However, visas were given to all the other members of the delegation scheduled to speak in Washington about the Islamic State’s persecution of...

    Rep. Darrell Issa forced a White House attorney to testify Tuesday as he and other GOP lawmakers seek answers on why years' worth of emails from ex-IRS official Lois Lerner have disappeared. Tensions flared almost from the beginning. The chairman of the House oversight committee, shortly after White House attorney Jennifer O'Connor began to testify, accused her of being a "hostile witness" when she did not immediately answer one of his questions. "I'm not a hostile witness," she retorted. "Yes, you are," Issa, R-Calif., said. He later clarified to say she is "non-cooperative." O'Connor was brought before the committee because...

The White House declined this week to make Chief Technology Officer Todd Park available to testify at a House Oversight hearing next Wednesday on the rollout of Healthcare.gov. White House Assistant Director for Legislative Affairs Donna Pignatelli said Mr. Park is currently too busy helping fix the troubled healthcare website to appear, and suggested he testify in early December instead.
