House intel panel to hear from top officials on Russian Federation probe

Comey and Rogers testified in a public hearing on March 20.

The hearing is expected to take place after May 2.

On Friday, the panel said that it sent a letter inviting the former Obama administration officials on Thursday to an open hearing that would be scheduled after May 2.

In his final weeks leading the Russian Federation investigation - he remains the chairman of the committee on all other matters - Nunes raised questions about the handling of classified materials by members of the Obama administration, saying he had seen classified documents that showed that the identities of Trump campaign figures had been improperly revealed. During that hearing Comey confirmed that the FBI is investigating alleged ties between members of the Trump campaign and the Russian government. A planned closed hearing with Comey and Rogers also was put off.

Two watchdog groups, Democracy 21 and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington have asked the House Ethics Committee to investigate whether Nunes disclosed classified information from intelligence reports.

As they return to Washington next week, Democrats and Republicans on the secretive panel hope to keep their heads down and conduct their investigation without political distractions.

In his final week in charge of the investigation, Nunes had canceled a public hearing with Yates, Clapper and Brennan because, he said, the committee needed first to hear again from Comey and Rogers in a closed session.

Nunes was a supporter of Trump's campaign and a member of his transition team.

Zuckerberg said the company is making the "first mainstream augmented reality platform out of the camera", called "Act 2". However, he also has predicted that the augmented-reality platform will soon be incorporated into eyeglasses as well.

Nunes later acknowledged that details had been shared with him by a secret source on the White House grounds.

An essential part of that investigation would be to see what ties, connections or loyalties Trump has toward Russian Federation and why Russian Federation wanted him to be president.

Both Republicans and Democrats who later saw the documents indicated that there was nothing illegal or exceptional in how the Obama administration had dealt with the identities of the Trump figures mentioned in them.

The House panel is examining whether Russian Federation tried to influence the election in Trump's favor, mostly by hacking Democratic operatives' emails and releasing embarrassing information, or possibly by colluding with Trump associates.

The announcement was less about Woods' health and future, though, than the newest course design for his company, TGR Design. The TGR Design firm has four courses open worldwide and several other courses are in various stages of construction.

Early this month, Nunes temporarily recused himself from the group's probe into possible ties between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign, blaming "several left-wing activist groups" he said "have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics" on his way out.
