Score one for Adam:

The House Intelligence Committee on Thursday asked several senior Obama administration officials, including former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, to testify publicly in the panel’s probe into Russian interference in the U.S. election.

The committee has also invited FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers to return before the committee to testify in a closed setting.

The Yates hearing would be scheduled after Comey and Rogers appear, slated for May 2. Former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper have also been invited to testify with Yates.

The timing of the two hearings has been a point of partisan contention on the panel and has been one of many fights that has threatened to undermine the committee's investigation. 

The open panel, including Yates, had previously been scheduled in March, but was canceled by committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.).
