The House Intelligence Committee plans to hold an initial open hearing on March 20 to investigate Russian intelligence efforts that targeted the U.S., The Daily Caller reported Tuesday.
Kerry Picket writes the panel invited government agency leaders such as FBI‘s James Comey and National Security Agency‘s Mike Rogers as well as Dmitri Alperovitch and Shawn Henry, respectively chief technology officer and chief security officer of Crowdstrike.
“I want to make sure that we hold as many of these hearings out in public so that the American people can attend and report on it,” said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s 2017 Wash100 for 2017.
Leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said in January they would probe counterintelligence issues related to Russia and the 2016 U.S. elections.
In late 2016, the White House imposed sanctions against Russia for hacking and other efforts sought to influence the presidential election.
