The House Intelligence Committee is set to interview Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) and British publicist Rob Goldstone on Monday as part of its ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, CNN reported.
Wasserman Schultz resigned as head of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) last July after leaked emails showed party officials appeared to favor Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
Wasserman Schultz has also denied knowing about an arrangement for the DNC to help fund a dossier containing salacious allegations about President Trump. Clinton’s campaign and the DNC reportedly paid millions to a law firm involved in the compilation of the dossier.
The House Intelligence Committee has several interviews scheduled Monday to kick off a packed week of witnesses in the panel's Russia probe.
The committee is interviewing British music publicist Rob Goldstone, who arranged the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump campaign officials and a Russian lawyer who promised dirt on Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former head of the Democratic National Committee, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
The panel has set three closed-door interviews for Monday, including with Michael Sussman of Perkins Coie LLP. The law firm forwarded payments from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign to Fusion GPS, which in turn commissioned the dossier on Trump. The committee is to also hear Monday from Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, the former DNC chairwoman. The panel also will interview British music publicist Rob Goldstone, who helped arrange a June 9, 2016, meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer who promised dirt on Clinton. Trump Jr. has said turned out to be a bogus promise and no such information was provided.
