The House Intelligence Committee has invited Sally Yates to testify regarding the investigation on Russia meddling in the 2016 elections. The former Acting Attorney General has accepted the invitation and is expected to discuss any information she has regarding ties to Trump officials and Russian government officials. 

Via The Hill:

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 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 Washington Post reported at the time that the White House sought to block her from testifying, a charge that White House press secretary Sean Spicer has denied.

There was speculation in liberal circles that the reason why Yates was fired was because she had damning information on Trump and /or his team. This is highly unlikely. If she did, you’d have heard it already.

Expect a boring testimony with a lot of innuendo and no substance.
